People today are living longer and retaining an active lifestyle longer than at other points in time. However, one drawback of this extended active life span is that we are more likely to develop chronic and degenerative conditions, which are often painful as well as debilitating.
Regenerative Medicine uses the body’s own tissue or tissue material natural to the human body to help restore or establish normal function and improve pain.

For many years, medicine has used elements of Regenerative Medicine like bone marrow aspirate to treat complications from a number of diseases. However, medicine has only recently channeled the healing power of one’s own bone marrow, peripheral blood, donated amnion, exosomes, and the like to help in the orthopedic realm. This part of Regenerative Medicine is known as Orthobiologics.

OrthoSouth offers the following orthobiologic treatment options:

  • Bone Marrow Treatment
  • Growth Factor Therapy
  • Alpha 2 macroglobulin
  • Autologous conditioned plasma
  • Exosomes
  • Amnion

Your doctor will discuss which treatment option(s) may be right for you and your specific medical situation.

Regenerative medicine may be an option for individuals dealing with soft tissue injuries of the muscles, tendons or ligaments; degenerative conditions such as arthritis; disc degenerative problems; non-union fractures; and other chronic non-healing conditions.

Regenerative therapy tends to have fewer side effects when compared to steroid injections and surgery. The therapies are natural and organic – they utilize and enhance your body’s own inherent properties to promote and speed up the natural healing process. Additionally, the procedures are non-surgical and minimally invasive.

All treatments come with potential risks and side effects. Your doctor will discuss risks and side effects with you before any treatment.
