What is Regenerative Medicine?

Regenerative medicine is a safe and non-surgical alternative to many spine and joint conditions like tendonitis, degenerative arthritis, and more. The treatment takes advantage of the human body's natural ability to repair itself by providing injured areas with an injected boost of regenerative cells.

Stem Cell Rx is one of very few South Florida medical centers to harvest and make use of mesenchymal stem cells. Found in bone marrow, circulating blood, and fat tissue, these cells are not of embryonic origin and are harvested from the patient's own body – taking advantage of the benefits of stem cells while avoiding the many complications and ethical issues associated with their use. These cells function in the body to help repair cartilage, tendon, and bone; we use mesenchymal stem cells extracted from the body's fat tissue to help the body repair and replace damaged spinal and joint tissue.

Another beneficial component of our treatment is platelet-rich plasma, or PRP. PRP injections contribute growth factors and proteins that stimulate healing, and can be used in conjunction with stem cell therapies to treat moderate to severe joint and spine conditions. Combined with safe supplements to increase stem cell production, patients can see a marked improvement in their condition with considerably fewer side effects

Stem cell therapy is a form of cellular therapy as described by the American Medical Association. It is a form of treatment which uses stem cells to treat or prevent a condition. Forms of stem cell therapy have been used for over 30 years, for example the use of bone marrow transplants for cancer patients with leukaemia. Stem cell therapy is now used for several other conditions, including acute and chronic inflammation (and the prevention of), treating pain, regeneration of tissue, among others. Stem cell treatment has reduced pain in over 80% of patients, which is one of the reasons why it is becoming so popular.

Stem Cell Rx's use of regenerative medicine helps to get your life back from muscular skeletal injuries faster and without surgery. Dr. Luis Escobar can help you do just that with regenerative treatments of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and your own stem cells. Stem cells live in all of us and act like little repairmen of the body. However, during injuries we sometimes can't get enough of these crucial repair cells to the injured area. This is where we step in and pin point the exact location of the cause of the injury by the use of ultrasound and live x-ray guidance.

Suitable patients can request stem cell therapy in Hollywood, Aventura, Pembroke Pines or any of the surrounding areas. Depending on your specific circumstances and condition, stem cell therapy can be a good option.
