Regenerative Medicine

A natural alternative to surgery & pain medications.

Accelerate Your Body’s Natural Healing Path

The human body has an amazing natural ability to heal itself. A cut to the skin can repairs itself. Bruises go away. Broken bones mend.

Regenerative medicine is the branch of medicine that develops methods to support and accelerate the body’s natural path to regrow, repair or replace damaged or diseased cells, organs or tissues. It first started coming to the forefront in the 1990s when tissue engineering became popular for stem cell research and procedures like skin grafting. Regenerative medicine now includes the generation and use of human cellular tissue products, tissue engineering and even the production of artificial organs.

The goal of all regenerative medicine is to replace or reboot tissues or organs damaged because of disease, injury, age, or other issues instead of treating symptoms with medication and procedures.
