Regenerative Medicine uses non-surgical injection procedures to promote repair of damaged tendons, ligaments and joints. Our regenerative and biological treatments include Prolotherapy, Platelet Rich Plasma PRP, and Stem Cell Therapies. These treatments enhance the natural cycles of repair in chronically injured joints, ligaments and tendons. Regenerative injections are an effective treatment for all manner of acute and chronic back and neck pain, as well as osteoarthritis and injuries to the hip, knee, shoulder, elbow, wrist, foot and ankle. For our patients who have been told that their only solution is surgery or a life on pain medications, the vast majority have been able to achieve drug-free, pain-free function without surgery or joint replacement.
At Oregon Regenerative Medicine, we use stem cells that are harvested from your own adipose tissue. Unlike embryonic stem cells, these adult stem cells contained in your adipose tissue are approved by the FDA for research and treatment of a wide variety of conditions. Adult adipose tissue is the most abundant source of stem cells in the human body, and has shown great promise in the treatment of a host of conditions.
Regenerative Medicine therapies are as follows:
