DFW Regenerative Medicine – PRP Injections and Stem Cell Therapies
Regenerative medicine offers patients hope and solutions for healing damaged tissues that were previously considered beyond repair. OPTIMAL Pain & Regenerative Medicine offers Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate (BMAC) Stem Cells and regenerative allograft treatment options.
PRP therapy utilizes growth factors that are naturally found in human blood. These growth factors are capable of stimulating cellular growth to help promote healing. Patients in need of regeneration, can look to “pluripotent” stem cells. Stem cells are found in the bodies bone marrow and are typically used to treat arthritic conditions and sports injuries. For patients over the age of 60, an allograft will be used in combination with PRP therapy to assist in tissue regeneration. Regenerative allograft therapy includes, BioD® Restore, BioBurst Rejuv Umbilical Cord Stem Cells, Liveyon ReGen® Umbilical Cord Stem Cells, AmnioFix® Treatment, and EpiFix®.

What are PRP Injections?
PRP injection is an advanced therapy that uses a patient’s own blood components to help accelerate the healing of injuries. 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 that are essential in inducing and accelerating tissue repair and regeneration. Using the most advanced tissue guidance with ultrasound or fluroscopy, 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 Allograft Regenerative Options?
Patients under the age of 60 generally achieve tissue regeneration using their own “pluripotent” stem cells through the use of BMAC. However, the human body loses its ability to regenerate tissue from its own (autologous) stem cells as it ages. As a result, patients over the age of 60 typically achieve better results using allograft (donated) tissue along with PRP injections. The doctors at OPTIMAL Pain & Regenerative Medicine will determine which tissue option will have the optimal outcome for each individual patient. This treatment replicates the benefits of stem cell therapy without the ethical concerns of using embryonic/fetal stem cells using one of these allograft options:
Are You a Candidate for Regenerative Medicine?
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 spinal diseases.
- Patients who have not had success with other treatments such as medication, traditional pain management and physical therapy.
Why Choose 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.
