Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine is a way to promote healing by introducing specialized healing cells into an injured area. With autologous stem cell regenerative medicine, stem cells are harvested from your own body through a short in-office procedure. These stem cells are quickly processed and then injected into targeted tissues that are injured or that need to heal, like after surgery.

Upon injection, these powerful cells transform into the cells that surround them. For instance, if stem cells are injected into a ligament, they can differentiate and turn into ligament cells. This helps to promote healing and build tissue strength in the most natural way possible.

How can regenerative medicine help me?

Regenerative medicine is the most innovative way to promote healing after surgery or after an accident, or if you have a chronic degenerative condition. You may benefit from regenerative medicine therapies if you have any of the following conditions:

  • Cancer
  • Arthritis
  • Sports injuries
  • Slow-healing wounds
  • Ligament or tendon tears

The benefit of using autologous stem cells from your own body is that your risk of side effects or even cell rejection is low since you’re using your body’s own cells.

Plus, the orthopedic specialists at Mehling Orthopedics, Dr. Mehling and Dr. Yufit, continue to stay abreast of the latest regenerative medicine solutions. They can help you find the best type of regenerative therapy for your specific condition.

When does regenerative medicine start working?

Because the purpose of regenerative medicine is to trigger your body’s own healing processes, it takes time to experience results. For the first week or two after your regenerative medicine treatment at Mehling Orthopedics, you may find that you have slight soreness or swelling. These minor side effects are a normal result of increased blood flow to the area and healing functions after injections.

It’s common to start noticing an improvement in your treated area within about three to four weeks, with continuing benefits and decreases in inflammation week after week. For minor injuries, you may only need a single regenerative medicine session at Mehling Orthopedics.

But if you have a more complex issue, Dr. Mehling or Dr. Yufit could suggest a series of regenerative medicine sessions, each spaced at least a month apart, to achieve optimal results. During your regenerative medicine consultation, you learn more about your tailored treatment plan and when you should expect results.
