The technology of Regenerative Medicines using stem cells to create living and functional tissues to regenerate and repair tissue and organs in the body that are damaged due to age, disease and congenital defects is on the cutting edge. The possibilities are literally unlimited.
Stem cells have the power to enter these damaged areas and regenerate new cells and tissues by performing a repair and a renewal process, restoring functionality. Regenerative medicine has the potential to aid in the restoration of failing or impaired tissues. Many medical issues can be alleviated with this technology. Imagine generating new tissue and organs that will replace those damaged by cancer. Imagine using stem cells for regenerative disc therapy to aid in the repair of herniated discs and sciatica, alleviating the pain associated with them. Back injuries and pain affects a majority of our population. The use of regenerative medicine will give many people back their quality of life.
Regenerative medicine is an emerging branch of medicine with the goal of restoring organ and/or tissue function for patients with serious injuries or chronic disease. These patient’s bodies own responses are not sufficient enough to restore functional tissue on their own. Utilizing regenerative medicine will assist the body in restoring the tissue.
A growing crisis in organ transplantation and an aging population have driven a search for new and alternative therapies. There are approximately 90,000 patients in the US transplant-waiting list. In addition, there is a wide array of major unmet medical needs which might be addressed by regenerative technologies. Regenerative medicine in NY and NJ is available at either of our offices.
