Regenerative medicine is a safe, non-surgical procedure that utilizes a patient’s own blood and bone marrow to relieve pain and jumpstart the healing process.

Is Regenerative Therapy Right for you?

  • Athletes and active individuals with acute injuries such as muscle or tendon sprains/strains or who suffer from chronic pain caused by tendon injuries or osteoarthritis.
  • Individuals suffering from degenerative disc disease.
  • Patients who have not had success with other treatments such as medication, traditional pain management and physical therapy.

What are PRP Injections?

An advanced therapy using a patient’s own blood components to rebuild damaged tissue, such as tendons or cartilage. The blood is drawn and separated by a centrifuge device to create a concentrate of platelets in plasma. This concentrate contains multiple growth factors and up to 500% of bioactive proteins which are essential in inducing and accelerating tissue repair and regeneration. Using the most advanced tissue guidance with ultrasound, the PRP concentrate is injected into the damaged areas including connective tissues, bone, and hyaline cartilages to expedite the development of new blood vessels necessary for tissue healing.

What are Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate (BMAC) Stem Cell Therapies?

A more advanced form of regenerative therapy using bone marrow withdrawn from the patient’s pelvic bones (Iliac crest) through a simple outpatient needle aspiration procedure. This bone marrow is concentrated to contain all of the growth and healing factors that are contained in PRP, along with concentrated “pluripotent” nucleated cells that further contribute to the regenerative process. BMAC has been shown to help regenerate joint cartilage and spinal discs and may significantly speed the healing process for other injuries. It is often used in cases with significant tissue damage, or when other types of regenerative therapies have failed.

What is BioD® Restore?

Patients under the age of 60 generally achieve tissue regeneration using their own “pluripotent” stem cells through the use of BMAC. However, since the human body loses its ability to regenerate tissue from its own (autologous) stem cells as it ages, patients over the age of 60 typically achieve better results using a combination of PRP injections and a placental stem cell transplant, called an allograft, to assist in tissue regeneration. BioD®, uses a cryopreserved allograft derived from human placental stem cells to support tissue repair and regeneration along with PRP injections to accelerate healing for patients 60 years and older.

Why Chose OPTIMAL Pain & Regenerative Medicine?

The physicians at Optimal Pain & Regenerative Medicine are focused on providing quality, custom care for each patient. Through the use of cutting-edge technology and exceptional care, the main goal at Optimal is to return patients to a pain free state.

The PRP kits used at Optimal are FDA approved and produce concentrate at least seven to nine times stronger than the original platelets. The BMAC kits used at Optimal are approved by the FDA and consistently produce higher counts of nucleated stem cells in head-to-head studies. Those numbers and the experience of the provider are critical to the outcome.

Are Regenerative Therapies Covered by Insurance?

Regenerative therapies are still considered experimental / investigational and are currently not covered by insurance. Please call for pricing.
