Regenerative Orthopaedic

Regenerative Orthopaedic

Regenerative medicine is a branch of translational research which deals with the process of replacing, engineering or regenerating human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function.

Regenerative orthopaedics is a sub-speciality of regenerative medicine that focuses on regeneration of damaged tissue, acceleration of healing, and pain relief to treat orthopaedic conditions such as osteoarthritis, tendonitis, low back pain, joint injuries (degenerative arthritis), ligament injuries, sprains and strains etc.

Regenerative orthopaedics uses:

  • Mesenchymal Stem Cells that are usually obtained from the bone marrow or fat.
  • Platelets: Platelets obtained from blood.
  • Growth factors: Proteins obtained from blood that are essential for tissue repair and regeneration.

Regenerative orthopaedics is used to avoid or delay surgery, accelerate healing after surgery or injury, or when surgery or other therapies have failed. When it comes to Regenerative Orthopaedics…… “The future is now”.
