Regenerative medicine

Regenerative medicine includes innovative outpatient procedures that use the body's own unique healing properties to provide significant pain relief and improved function.

Treatment options

Platelet-rich plasma and BMAC

PRP relies on platelets (cell fragments found in blood) and white blood cells to heal and repair injuries. This combination can enhance the body’s natural ability to heal, reduce inflammation in tendons and joints, and accelerate the repair of damaged tendons and ligaments.

PRP is usually given as injections. Blood is taken from the patient and processed in a centrifuge, which separates blood into different parts according to their density. The platelets are separated into blood serum (plasma), and some of the white and red blood cells may be removed. This process concentrates the platelets into PRP.

BMAC (bone marrow aspirate stem cell concentrate) is a component of your bone marrow that contains growth factors and anti-inflammatory proteins which have been shown to promote bone and soft tissue healing, as well as reduce symptoms of pain related to injuries, tendinitis and arthritis.
Extracorporeal pulse activation technology

EPAT (extracorporeal pulse activation technology) uses the same shockwave principles used for nonsurgical treatment of kidney stones — without anesthesia. The technology is based on using pressure waves that stimulate metabolism, enhance blood circulation and accelerate the healing process.

Benefits include:

  • EPAT is a noninvasive treatment (no surgery)
  • Patients can return to normal activity immediately with no downtime
  • More than 80% of patients have long-term pain relief

The procedure is done in-office and only takes about 15 to 20 minutes per session. Most patients will need three treatments, spaced about 7 to 10 days apart.

FluidFlow amniotic liquid allograft

BioLab Fluid Flow™ is liquid derived from the amniotic fluid within the placenta to support the repair of soft tissue injury by providing natural growth factors and other extracellular components to the injured area to promote healing, reduce inflammation and shorten healing time.

Fluid Flow™ can help with:

  • Bursitis
  • Fasciitis
  • Joint pain
  • Ligament and tendon sprains
  • Muscle and meniscus tears
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sports injuries
  • Tendonitis

Tenex Health's minimally invasive technology can help eliminate chronic tendon pain by targeting and removing damaged tissue, without the need for conventional surgery. This procedure uses ultrasound to identify the damaged tissue, remove it and stimulate healing. The result is improved overall function and significantly decreased pain. Patients can recover in as quickly as 3 to 6 weeks.

TENEX is recommended for:

  • Tendonitis of the elbow, hip, knee, and ankle
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Calcific deposit in the tendon
  • Calcific rotator cuff tendonitis

Cells for use in MACI procedures are lab-grown in petri dishes

MACI® (autologous cultured chondrocytes on porcine collagen membrane) is made up of your own cells that are expanded and placed onto a film that is implanted into the area of the cartilage damage and absorbed back into your own tissue.

MACI® is recommended for repairing cartilage damage in the adult knee.
