What’s Your Question?
What is regenerative medicine?
Regenerative medicine is the field of medicine dedicated to regenerating and restoring the patient in a proactive capacity rather than just treating symptoms.
Why is regenerative medicine a separate medical category?
Regenerative medicine utilizes several unique products and treatments designed specifically to restore function and regenerate tissues. Innovative cellular products and therapies are the hallmark of the regenerative field and have earned regenerative medicine a special category in the medical field.
What kind of physicians offer regenerative medicine treatment?
Most licensed physicians are legally allowed to offer regenerative medicine treatment; however, very few are trained in regenerative treatment modalities. Specialty medical offices are more likely offer regenerative therapies, such as orthopedic, podiatry, sports medicine, rheumatology, and many other specialty offices. Primary care offices could also offer regenerative treatment but rarely do.

Just know that in most cases there is no insurance coverage and patients are expected to pay cash for these services.
Where do I learn the differences in treatment modalities?

What do stem cells do exactly?
Stem cell use in regenerative medicine is wide spread. The general idea is that stem cells will react to cellular signaling from damaged tissue and transition into a cell type, matching the need of the damaged tissue cells, and induce tissue healing as a result. The actual process is much more complicated and there is a great deal more to learn about the mechanisms of stem cells, but for now you can find greater detail and education on stem cells in the Patient Resources page of regenproviders.com.
