Regenerative medicine is an emerging area of medical practice focused on providing treatments aimed at healing diseased and damaged tissue, rather than just providing treatments that manage symptoms. Dedicated to helping patients overcome the many challenges they face, the experienced team at ANWAN Wellness Medical Center uses a number of tools and techniques that provide long-term results for better health and wellness.
For regenerative medicine, the integrated team uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy and stem cell therapy.
PRP therapy is a form of regenerative medicine that uses the healing properties found in your blood to improve the health and function of diseased or damaged tissue. You may be aware that platelets in blood stop your cuts from bleeding, but these cells also trigger the release of growth factors and specialized cells that help heal the injured tissue.
PRP, which is created from a sample of your own blood, contains a high concentration of platelets and the other healing properties. When injected directly into your damaged tissue, the healing properties reduce inflammation and pain and accelerate the repair process.
Your body has its own set of stem cells. These special cells have the ability to transform themselves into any type of cell your body may need to regenerate or heal tissue, such as bone cells, brain cells, or muscle cells. Unfortunately, stem cell production and function may change as you get older.
Stem cell therapy is a form of regenerative medicine that uses the healing powers of stem cells to heal injured or diseased tissue. The team at ANWAN Wellness Medical Center uses mesenchymal stem cells for stem cell therapy and often combines these cells with PRP therapy to enhance healing.

The treatments used for regenerative medicine are injected directly into the injured or diseased tissue using ultrasound-guided technology to ensure the healing cells get to the tissues that need them.
