The goal of regenerative medicine is to repair tissues or organs damaged by aging, trauma, and disease. Regenerative medicine allows function of tissues to potentially be improved, however, the field is very new and we do not have large clinical trials for conditions yet. The stem cells can be obtained from bone marrow, peri-natal tissues, or adipose.
Several small studies show that stem cells may help with hip, knee, shoulder pain. In a recent study, the quality of regenerated tissue was higher in patients treated with stem cell injections. We need larger studies to know just how well regenerative therapies work.
The various regenerative procedures being used at our California stem cell therapy clinics are:
