Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine uses biological substances from your own body, or donated tissues from a lab, to stimulate your body’s healing ability. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from your blood and stem cells, which can regenerate into other cells within your body, accelerate new tissue growth to relieve pain, and enhance healing naturally.

What is regenerative medicine used for?

The expert team at Apollo Medical uses regenerative medicine to:

  • Relieve joint pain
  • Decrease inflammation
  • Enhance healing of injuries
  • Improve mobility and range of motion
  • Diminish chronic pain
  • Stimulate new tissue generation
  • Maximize your quality of life

Regenerative medicine treatment at Apollo Medical is noninvasive, painless, and fast, but can produce dramatic results. It’s a natural alternative to pain medication and invasive surgical procedures.

Is regenerative medicine right for me?

To find out if regenerative medicine is for you, your provider goes over your medical history, asks you about symptoms, and completes a comprehensive physical exam. They may use blood tests or imaging procedures, such as X-rays or MRIs, to diagnose your disease or injury and develop a customized treatment plan.

What happens during regenerative medicine?

What you can expect during regenerative medicine treatment depends on which type of injury you have and its severity. Your regenerative medicine specialist numbs the treatment area, and:

PRP therapy

With PRP therapy, your primary care physician takes a blood sample from your arm. They place it in a centrifuge to extract PRP from the rest of your blood and inject PRP back into your body at the site of pain or injuries.

Stem cell therapy

After taking stem cells from bone marrow, fat tissue, or other areas of your body (or using donated stem cells from a lab), your provider injects stem cells at targeted areas of your body for pain relief and healing.

What should I expect after treatment?

You can resume a normal routine after regenerative medicine treatment, as there’s no downtime associated with your procedure. You might notice redness, swelling, or minor tenderness at the injection site that soon subsides.

The Apollo Medical team might recommend multiple regenerative medicine treatments overtime to give you the best results. Over the next few days and weeks, expect to experience improvements in healing and pain relief.
