Regenerative Medicine
in Manasquan, NJ

Regenerative medicine provides a way to potentially heal new and old injuries and in many cases avoid surgery. Regenerative medicine typically takes three interrelated approaches:

  • Rejuvenation: These methods boost the body’s ability to heal itself. Even tissues that were once thought to be unrepairable once damaged (such as nervous tissue) have been shown to be able to remodel and heal itself to some extent.
  • Replacement: This is the use of healthy cells and tissues to replace damaged ones.
  • Regeneration: This involves the delivery of cells and cell-based products where they restore tissue and organ function.

Regenerative Medicine Treatment Options

PRP Therapy

PRP therapy is an all-natural treatment that speeds up and promotes healing. There is minimal downtime and fewer side effects compared to surgery or steroid injections. When physical therapy, bracing and medications do not provide resolution of the painful condition, PRP Injections can be employed and in many cases provide dramatic improvement as well as resolution of the injury. PRP Injections are prepared from your own blood. This means that there is no risk of rejection or disease transmission. As with any procedure, there is very minimal risk of infection. IV sedation and a local anesthetic are used, so there is minimal if any discomfort during the procedure.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments work through the release of growth factors and cytokines that allow reparative cells to migrate into the area of injury allowing for accelerated healing of the injured tissue. PRP injections have been found to be very useful in healing disorders of the spine, joints, ligaments, tendons, and other tissues.

Prior to undergoing treatment, the nurse will withdraw the needed amount of blood from the patient. This blood sample is then placed in a special centrifuge to separate the platelets from the other cells found in the blood. The resulting highly concentrated mixture of platelets, plasma and other growth and healing factors are then injected, under sterile operating room conditions via x-ray guidance, back into the patient’s targeted injury site to allow repair and pain resolution.

PRP Injections have been successfully used to treat:

  • Muscle injuries / tendonitis
  • Shoulder, Hip and Knee pain
  • Tennis and golfer’s elbow
  • Sports injuries
  • Arthritic pain
  • Cervical, Thoracic and Lumbar Spine Pain
  • Bursitis
  • Sacroiliac Joint Disorders
  • Lumbar disc pain / Intradiscular PRP

Intradiscular PRP injections have been found to improve and or resolve severe chronic low back pain. Specifically, it helps to relieve pain from herniated discs and degenerative disc disease.

Repair System

Regenerative medicine utilizes the body’s natural healing mechanism to treat various conditions. Cells are present in everyone, and they act like a repair system for the body. The goal of regenerative medicine is to strengthen a patient’s natural repair abilities by increasing the numbers of healthy cells at the site of an injury.

Regenerative medicine has three very important properties:

  • Reduces inflammation at the site of tissue injury
  • Stimulates the immune system to begin the repair process
  • Secrete factors that allow for tissue regeneration

Regenerative medicine has been shown to treat many conditions and diseases including:

  • Tendon tears
  • Muscle injuries / tendonitis
  • Shoulder, Hip and Knee pain
  • Tennis and golfer’s elbow
  • Sports injuries
  • Arthritic pain
  • Cervical, Thoracic and Lumbar Spine Pain
  • Bursitis
  • Sacroiliac Joint Disorders
  • Lumbar disc pain / Intradiscular PRP

The greatest advantage of regenerative medicine is the potential to avoid the need for invasive surgery or reliance upon medications for long term pain control.
