Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine aims to restore normal structure and function by stimulating your body to create healthy new cells. These cells replace damaged or diseased ones that lead to pain and disability. 

Valiant Life Medical doctors use two main types of regenerative medicine:

Stem cells

Stem cells are essentially the building blocks of life. These cells have the unique ability to differentiate into many specialized cells. Stem cells can regenerate into cartilage, bone, muscle, and ligament cells to repair a damaged joint.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

PRP is a concentrated form of the healing components (growth factors) that naturally occur in your own blood. PRP helps with healing by reducing inflammation, increasing blood flow, and stimulating cellular regeneration. 

Where do stem cells come from?

Stem cells occur in various places in your own body as well as in the placenta and umbilical cords of newborn babies. Valiant Life Medical uses stem cells that come from the umbilical cords of healthy, live-born babies. 

Umbilical cord stem cell collection only occurs after the baby’s delivery and the umbilical cord is cut. Then, the cells are processed in a highly-specialized lab to ensure safety and purity.

What conditions does regenerative medicine treat?

Regenerative medicine is a versatile treatment that enhances healing in all types of tissues. Conditions that benefit from regenerative medicine include:

  • Arthritis
  • Sports injuries
  • Tendonitis
  • Rotator cuff tears and injuries
  • Ligament and meniscus tears
  • Degenerative spinal discs
  • Non-healing bone fractures
  • Tennis elbow
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Back or neck pain

These conditions can cause disabling pain that interferes with your daily life, but the team at Valiant Life Medical can help.

Why should I consider regenerative medicine?

The Valiant Life Medical team uses regenerative medicine to help a broad range of patients. You may want to consider regenerative medicine if:

  • You experience pain in your back, wrist, knee, hip, or shoulder
  • Activities like biking, running, and walking are difficult
  • You constantly have to take breaks while walking
  • You can’t get up or down from the floor to play with grandkids
  • Daily activities irritate your joints
