REGENERATIVE MEDICINE IN KNOXVILLE, TN
Discover the power of the human body! With regenerative medicine, we can now optimize the way the body heals itself!
The human body is a powerful thing – but over time, our tissue can lose functionality and resiliency due to age, injury, and disease.
We offer a couple of types of Regenerative Medicine in Knoxville, depending on your needs.
PRP (or Platelet-Rich Plasma) is a method of using the platelets in your own blood to help your body repair itself. It is the first in the line of regenerative medicine treatments. We draw your own blood and process it to get the platelet concentrated part of the blood. Platelets have growth factors in them. We then reinject those platelets in areas to help regenerate tissue. It can help fill out wrinkles, replace volume loss, stimulate new hair growth, lift the chest, or help regenerate areas with loss of function. It is Regenerative Medicine that leads to a more youthful functional cells.
The PRP procedures we do with PRP include:
When injured or invaded by disease, our bodies have the innate response to heal and defend. What if it was possible to harness the power of the body to heal and then accelerate it in a clinically relevant way? What if we could help the body heal better?
The promising field of Regenerative Medicine is working to restore the structure and function of damaged tissues and organs. It is also working to create solutions for organs that become permanently damaged. The goal of this approach is to find a way to cure previously untreatable injuries and diseases. Our bodies are made up of different cells and tissue: blood cells, epithelial cells, connective tissue, neurons (brain), muscle cells, lung cells, etc. These cells provide a specific purpose and are known as specialized stem cells.
Stem cells are present in our bodies throughout our lives. They are highly concentrated at young ages, but levels drop off steeply as we age. In early life, they are used to nurture the growth of new cells and organs. Later in life, stem cells are used as a repair system These cells are unique, because they can divide in half, remaining a stem cell for future use and becoming a replenishing cell for any type of tissue at the same time.
Stem cells can become any cell based on your body’s need. However, as we age our bodies don’t have the ability to regenerate like before. By implementing stem cell therapy we are essentially able to reverse the effects of aging!
Where do Stem Cells come from?
In the early stages of life, stem cells are supplied through the umbilical cord, our mother’s nourishment coming to us in complex and transformative cells. Today, we are able to use stem cells from the umbilical cord tissue. There is an extensive screening and all from live births. There is an extensive screening in formulation of the final treatment product. RMD obtains only the highest quality of Stem cell from FDA compliant Human cell and tissue companies.
Is Stem Cell Safe?
Stem Cell Therapy is very safe and does not require downtime or recovery time post-procedure. In fact, procedures are performed in office and patients are able to return to their normal lives the same day.
