Regenerative Medicine in Tucson - Coming Soon
What is regenerative medicine?
Regenerative medicine involves using your body to heal itself, using naturally occurring stem cells and specialized fluids. The Fix Medical provides patients with amniotic allograft treatments for regenerating healing purposes. These treatments are made up of hyaluronic acid, regenerative cells, and cytokines, which are all powerful growth factors that help regenerate your body’s tissues.
Once you’re injected with the amniotic allograft serum, the growth factors start to work, triggering cell growth in the area injected. Over the following few weeks, cells grow and divide, forming new tissues. This helps heal damaged or injured areas you have, without going through a surgical procedure.
Which conditions can be treated with regenerative medicine?
Regenerative medicine with amniotic allograft treatments is beneficial for healing many types of bone and soft tissue problems, including arthritis. The injections help heal your:
- Shoulder Pain (Including Rotator Cuff and Labrum Injuries)
- Elbow pain (Golfer’s Elbow and Tennis Elbow)
- Wrist Pain
- Hip Pain
- Knee Pain
- Foot/Ankle Pain
- Soft Tissue Injuries (Muscle, tendon and ligament)
- Osteoarthritic Conditions
How long does regenerative medicine take to work?
Because you are kickstarting your body into making new tissues, it does take some time for your regenerative medicine treatment to start working. Some patients report a dramatic reduction in their pain levels in as little as two months, while others experience improvement within a few weeks. It just depends on how quickly your body responds to the treatment.
Will I need more than one treatment with regenerative medicine?
Possibly, depending on how quickly you heal and the severity of your injury. If you don’t see any improvement after several months, or if you don’t notice significant improvement, your doctor might suggest repeating the treatment, just to further boost healthy tissue growth. They can let you know what to expect during your consultation and assessment appointment.
