What is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine is the term applied to a field of medicine that works to repair and regenerate human disease and injury. Conventional treatment often applies a “band-aid” to medical conditions, which are not able to effectively repair the issue at hand. Examples would include conditions such as arthritis in a joint, organ failure, cardiac issues, neuropathy, etc.
Regenerative Medicine does not just involve stem cell therapy. Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy also helps repair and regenerate tissue, while there are minimal stem cells actually in the fluid.
