Regenerative Medicine is a very new field. Researchers are busy trying to determine the potential of this exciting new field. How long will it be before we can grow new, healthy organs? This type of research is being done around the world every month.
We already know that regenerative medicine can do some incredible things, like treat arthritis, heal meniscus tears, and even heal partial Cruciate ligament tears. Much of this is through the use of stem cell. But believe it or not, many times the individual offering stem cell treatments is not even a doctor, but instead a chiropractor. These providers are not allowed by law to give injections, so they hire someone with a medical degree and bring them in their office to do injections. These injections are almost always allogenic cells (purchased cells from an embryo), done with no image guidance.
Additionally, there are sometimes physicians, with little experience treating muscle, joint and ligament disorders, who began offering stem cell to try to make a fast buck.
Clearly the best qualified stem cell provider would be an individual who is:
- a physician
- a provider with much experience with joint and spine injections
- experienced with the use of ultrasound and fluoroscopy
- experienced with PRP and stem cell through long term use
- associated with a network of physicians doing the same thing, in order to have the training, expertise, data, and knowledge base for all situations
At Southcoast Regenerative Medicine we meet all these criteria
