What is the Future of Regenerative Medicine?

What is the Future of Regenerative Medicine?

As patients seek out alternative options to painful, expensive, and difficult surgeries, demand for leading edge therapies such as Stem Cell, Prolotherapy, and Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) are reinventing how we approach treating injuries and other conditions. Regenerative therapies, also called orthobiologics, offer patients innovative alternatives to traditional orthopedic treatments and pain relief. These treatments regenerate and restore the health of the musculoskeletal system to its optimal performance and provide accelerated healing time.

Regenerative medicine is currently the fastest growing technology in orthopedics.

Both patients and physicians are excited about these new, expanded treatment options.

Many notable athletes have healed their injuries through stem cell and other regenerative treatments, including Peyton Manning, Bartolo Colon, Jarvis Green, Kobe Bryant, Andrew Bynum, and some say that Tiger Woods also improved his performance through these therapies.

There has been demonstrated effectiveness, and even more research is being conducted, based on positive outcomes that have already been experienced. In fact, Federal Government agencies have been investing in research and clinical care efforts focused on regenerative medicine (NIH, NSF, VA, and DoD), rehabilitation sciences (VA, NIH, NSF, DoD) and, more recently, regenerative rehabilitation (NIH and VA)1.

If you have any questions on your candidacy for regenerative treatments like stem cell therapy, PRP or prolotherapy, and are located in the Potomac, Maryland or Washington, DC area, look to board-certified orthopedic surgeons Dr. James E. Gilbert or Dr. Eric J. Guidi for the advanced treatments you need. And, if you are not a candidate for regenerative medicine procedures, our board-certified orthopedic surgeons offer a full spectrum of traditional orthopedic solutions, plus physical therapy - all on site.
