Regenerative medicine centers on the practice of rejuvenating, replacing or regenerating damaged tissue.
Your body has incredible healing powers, but some tissue types go through the repair process faster than others. Rejuvenation helps advance your natural healing process.
In many cases, healthy cells and tissues can replace those that are damaged. An example lies in organ transplants.
Cell-based therapies work by delivering specific cells to the site of diseased tissue, where they work to restore the damage.
The targeted use of ultrasonic energy is a great example of regenerative medicine. At PRISM, TENEX Health TX™ treatment is a powerful option for addressing joint pain caused by soft tissue and tendon damage.
The procedure uses an incredibly tiny microincision to direct ultrasonic energy to the affected tissue. That energy breaks down the targeted tissue without damaging surrounding healthy tissues. The scar tissue is then removed and the small incision is covered with a bandage.
Extracorporeal pulse activation technology, or EPATⓇ, is a revolutionary treatment for musculoskeletal pain. It addresses pain stemming from achilles issues, tendonitis, neuromas, and trigger points.
The process works by directing pressure waves into the treatment area during painless and non-invasive sessions. The pressure waves improve and enhance circulation, speeding natural healing.
Most men and women see results after a series of three sessions, although immediate pain relief is possible after the first treatment. This FDA cleared treatment is now in use around the world.
Lipogems are an exciting treatment technology in which your fat cells are used to cushion damaged joints and promote healing. The process begins by removing fat cells from your stomach, thighs, or “love handle” area.
The fat is then cleared of blood, oils, and other impurities before being injected back into your body at the site of tissue damage.
Mi-eye is a diagnostic imaging tool that offers an alternative to MRI. The technology behind mi-eye gives Dr. Blatz the information he needs to reach an accurate diagnosis, without the expense and wait required with an MRI.
The mi-eye system is a handheld design using disposable optical needles and an integrated camera. Dr. Brice Blatz guides the optical needle into the affected area and receive real-time imaging on a tablet. They can even administer pain medications through the optical needle, if necessary.
To learn more about these diagnostic and treatment options, or to explore the possibilities of regenerative medicine, schedule your appointment at PRISM today.
