What Is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine is the field of medicine that aims to replace damaged or diseased tissues or organs. This contrasts with the current, mainstream clinical approach that focuses on repairing those tissues or organs or merely treating the patient's symptoms. Achieving these results may entail cellular therapies and tissue engineering.
Alone or in conjunction with other therapies, regenerative medicine can help intensify and speed up the body's natural healing process of even a potentially damaged organ. In addition to expediting regeneration, regenerative medicine can also help restore the structure and function of the affected tissues and organs.
Also known as regenerative injection therapy or proliferation therapy, prolotherapy is an alternative procedure that is thousands of years old. During this procedure, Dr. Tripathi injects the patient with a natural irritant into the soft tissue of an injured joint. There are several types of prolotherapy, one known as hyaluronic acid injection treatment, which aims to trigger the body's healing process.
Different types of prolotherapy include dextrose prolotherapy, saline prolotherapy, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment, and bio-cellular prolotherapy. Once the healing response has been activated, the joint's damaged ligaments will start strengthening and repairing. Strengthening the ligaments will help gradually stabilize the joints, and the pain will begin to dissipate.
Blood consists mostly of plasma, a liquid rich with red cells, white cells, and platelets. Platelets are integral in clotting blood and contain hundreds of growth factors essential in healing. Platelet-rich plasma, abbreviated to PRP, is plasma with exponentially more platelets than ordinarily found in the blood.
As such, the concentration of growth factors may be at least five to 10 times richer than average. In PRP treatment, Dr. Tripathi draws blood from a patient, separates the platelets from the other blood cells, and increases their concentration through a process called centrifugation. He then injects them into the injured area to reduce inflammation cells and enhance cellular growth.
Patients should note that PRP treatment may vary depending on certain factors, including the patient's overall health, the type of injury (acute or chronic), the area of the body being treated, and the way the PRP is prepared.

Frequently Asked Questions About Regenerative Medicine
Q. Does health insurance cover regenerative medicine?
A. The answer varies on a case-by-case basis. Costs also vary depending on the treatment. We highly recommend calling your insurance carrier to know what to expect. We can also go over more details during a consultation.
Q. What can regenerative medicine treat?
A. Regenerative medicine can treat a slew of disorders and conditions. However, it works best for diseases caused by one or more faulty cells. Learn if this treatment is right for you by scheduling an appointment with us.
Q. What are the potential side effects of prolotherapy?
A. Prolotherapy is a generally safe procedure, with few reported side effects. Patients rarely experience infection at the site of injection. Symptoms may include fever and pain, and the infection itself is generally easily manageable with antibiotics.
Q. What is the difference between PRP treatment and cortisone injections?
A. Cortisone injections involve synthetic corticosteroids, while PRP treatments involve a highly concentrated injection of platelet-rich plasma. Unlike PRP treatment, cortisone injections cannot alter the underlying cause of the disease.
Q. How do I know if PRP is working for me?
A. Unlike many other therapies (particularly non-regenerative medicine therapies), PRP treatment does not mask any symptoms of the disease. As such, patients helped by PRP will notice a difference in their overall function and pain levels. Though some patients may experience an initial increase in overall pain levels, symptoms will continue to decrease as the healing process occurs. Some patients may experience more success with PRP treatment than others. For example, a patient's age, health, diet, and activity levels must all be considered. Repeat treatments may also be necessary.
