Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine heals damaged, injured, or worn-down body tissues from within. Ultimate U Medical practices autologous regenerative medicine, which means that Dr. Smith uses your body’s own cells to help you heal.

What type of regenerative medicine do I need?

The two main types of regenerative medicine in use today are PRP therapy and stem-cell therapy.

PRP therapy

PRP therapy harvests the platelets from your blood and reintroduces a highly concentrated platelet solution around an area that needs to heal. PRP releases growth factors, intensely powerful natural substances that encourage rapid healing.

Stem-cell therapy

Stem-cell therapy introduces a highly concentrated stem-cell solution around your damaged, worn-down, or injured tissue. The new stem cells can transform into the particular kind of tissue that you need. For example, if you’re having pain from disc degeneration, the stem cells can reinforce your disc by making brand-new disc tissue.

Many physicians offer you an either-or approach, meaning that you have to choose either PRP therapy or stem-cell therapy, depending on your particular needs. But, Dr. Smith believes in giving her patients the best of both worlds. She uses a highly advanced approach that was originally designed in Germany. This method, called PRP Stem Cell Plus, gives you both PRP and stem cells in one regenerative medicine treatment.

How does regenerative medicine treatment work?

At Ultimate U Medical, regenerative medicine is a quick and comfortable in-office treatment. Dr. Smith performs a small blood draw, and then uses a centrifuge to pull your platelets and stem cells out of your blood. Next, she adds a proprietary formula that greatly enhances the regenerative power of your natural PRP and stem cells.

Dr. Smith injects a numbing agent, lidocaine, in the treatment area to make sure you’re comfortable. Then, she administers the PRP Stem Cell Plus using an ultrathin needle. Over the next couple of weeks, the PRP Stem Cell Plus begins the rapid healing process so you can get fast pain relief.

Depending on your health needs, you might also benefit from IV vitamin therapy. You can get IV infusions on-site to restore healthy vitamin and nutrient levels, which can greatly aid in the regenerative process.
