I have been in regenerative medicine for 12 years now. I started with PRP way back then but it was still considered regenerative orthopedics. It was exciting to see patients get better when there was no good surgical alternative or the patient wished to avoid surgery. I had a niche where I could do more than the typical “standard of care” sports medicine physician despite not having the credentials to perform surgery.
Today I had another patient who was blown away by his results. This was his 6-month follow-up appointment for a right knee meniscus tear. It is well-known now in my industry that surgery for meniscus tears are not necessary in most cases. But most physicians and surgeons recommend surgery no matter what the symptoms. In reality, the only cases that mandate surgery are those that are acutely locked in one position or those that continue to swell, have mechanical symptoms or have pain that is affecting activities of daily living and sleep despite...
Regenerative medicine and stem cells. Two terms that are getting tossed around a lot in today’s world of modern medicine. But what do they actually mean?
Regenerative Medicine with stem cells is not as complex as people think, especially for something that seems so futuristic. Think about it like this: wouldn’t it be cool if humans shared the same capability as an animal like the starfish? The starfish can regrow their limbs and though we are not able to regrow our limbs, our bodies do have the incredible ability to continually restore blood, skin, and other tissues. Regenerative medicine is a promising area of progress and has been proven to work for procedures that have existed for decades, similar to bone marrow transplants.
Stem cells are nonspecific cells that can become more specific cells. There are two categories of stem cells: embryonic and adult. When the body loses blood, whether from a scraped elbow or blood donation, the body is replenished...
As our bodies age, they naturally go through several degenerative musculoskeletal processes. However, these can be countered with exercise to invigorate your functionality, mobility and overall health. Although it may be more difficult to engage at the same activity level as before, there are still many ways to stay active and increase or maintain your mobility.
As we age, our muscles, bones, and joints go through several changes that eventually lead to decreased mobility and functionality if a proper exercise regimen is not in place. These changes can affect your muscles, bones and joints.
Here are some changes you may notice.
Nona suffered for two and a half years with knee pain that averaged an eight most days and was often a ten on the pain scale. It affected her daily life from being able to walk down stairs to sleeping through the night.
She made a decision to see Dr. Waugh, MD at The Regen Room and to finally do something about the pain. In this short video, Dr. Waugh asks a few questions to understand Nona's history, explains the process and performs an ultrasound exam to identify the source of her knee pain.
Like so many others, Nona discovered that Regenerative Medicine could help her pain, restore her quality of life and get her back to her life....without medications or surgery.
