Newest Trends in Regenerative Medicine in San Jose, CA

Pacific Regenerative and Interventional Sports Medicine or PRISM in San Jose, California commits itself to staying up-to-date on the latest research in regenerative orthopedic medicine and implementing these techniques to provide the most cutting edge, research-driven treatments for its patients.

Brice Blatz, MD has been utilizing the combination of the TenJet procedure plus the addition of Lipogems to assist in the healing process of chronic tendon problems in multiple areas of the body.  Using just ultrasound for guidance and local anesthetic for pain control, Dr. Blatz removes diseased tendon with the TenJet device. The patient's own fat is then washed and purified with the Lipogems device thereby concentrating powerful factors from the patient's own tissues. The purified microfragmented fat is then injected into the area of previously removed diseased tendon to reestablish new, healthy tendon. This process has led to many successful outcomes for patients of all ages and has allowed them to return to their previous activities pain-free.

When it comes to arthritis, the latest literature studies have focused on not just what is going on inside the joint but also what is happening below the surface of the cartilage in the actual bone marrow. More and more evidence has shown that for a joint to be healthy, the underlying bone must also be healthy. There is also evidence that suggests that pain from arthritis may actually be caused by the underlying diseased bone. This has led to procedures focusing on treating not only what is going on inside the joint space, but also the bone. Dr. Blatz, through ultra-minimally invasive techniques, is able to access the bone deep to an arthritic joint and provide concentrated growth factors to stimulate healing within this space. The combination of this plus a regenerative injection inside the joint has proven very effective, even in those patients considered to have advanced or end-stage arthritis.
