Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine at Dallas Orthopedic & Shoulder Institute is a cutting-edge treatment in which your orthopedic specialist injects stem cells or PRP into the site of an injury to stimulate your body’s natural healing response. PRP is taken from your own blood. Stem cells change into other types of cells that are needed to repair your body.

Is regenerative medicine right for me?

You are probably the right candidate for regenerative medicine if you experience mild to moderate joint, muscle, or other soft-tissue injuries, and you’d like to avoid surgery. Even if you require surgery to fully restore your joint’s function, regenerative medicine can speed up healing after:

  • Sprains or strains
  • Fractures
  • Heel pain
  • Chronic joint pain
  • Joint injuries
  • Inflammation
  • Tendon or ligament injuries
  • Joint replacement surgery
  • Tennis elbow
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Bunion surgery

The experts at Dallas Orthopedic & Shoulder Institute let you know if the procedure is right for you. They carefully review your medical history, examine the muscles and joints in the areas to be treated, discuss your symptoms, and complete X-rays, MRIs, CT scans, or other imaging procedures.

What should I expect during the procedure?

When it’s time for regenerative medicine treatment at Dallas Orthopedic & Shoulder Institute, you relax in a comfortable chair.

If you go with PRP injections, your provider first takes a blood sample, then separates the PRP from the rest of your blood in a centrifuge. If stem cells are to be used, they might be taken from your body tissues, or the doctor could use donated stem cells.

During the procedure, your provider carefully injects stem cells or PRP into painful or injured muscles or joints. They first numb the treatment area to make your procedure more comfortable. It’s a simple, fast treatment without any downtime.

What happens after regenerative medicine treatment?

You can go about your daily schedule right after regenerative medicine treatments at Dallas Orthopedic & Shoulder Institute. Your provider might recommend several regenerative medicine injections to get the best results and use it for periodic maintenance treatments. Over time, you can experience faster healing, less pain, and a better quality of life.
