WHAT IS REGENERATIVE MEDICINE?
Regenerative medicine is a modern non-operative treatment solution utilizes the body’s natural healing process to rebuild damaged tissue, heal injuries more effectively, and eliminate pain. Regenerative medicine targets the underlying source of pain without relying on medication or surgery, and leads to increased function and mobility with a shorter recovery time than surgical options.Our regenerative medicine specialists have pioneered these safe and effective outpatient procedures for a variety of joint, tendon, ligament, and spinal conditions.

FOUR TYPES OF regenerative MEDICINE TREATMENTS:
stem cell therapy
Stem cells can differentiate into bone, cartilage, or fat cells to stimulate healing in the body. This can be performed for orthopedic conditions including major joints (ie: shoulder, hip, knee, ankle, etc.). Notably, Virginia Spine Institute is the only practice in Virginia to use stem cells to heal discs in the spine.
platelet-rich plasma (prp)
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) promotes tissue repair and accelerates healing by injecting a concentration of platelets into the damaged area. PRP is a permanent solution that does not wear off over time.
A Lipogems injection utilizes the reparative cells found in our fat, including stem cells, to repair, replace, reconstruct, and support damaged or injured tissues.
Prolotherapy is designed to promote natural healing of a ligament or tendon, that did not heal properly. The goal is to strengthen weakened connective tissue and improve pain.
