Alpha 2 Macroglubulin (A2M)
A2M is an autologous treatment created from your own blood. The Alpha 2 Macroglubulin molecule inhibits degrading proteins and prevents further joint damage. It is called a protease inhibitor in the medical field and is one of the latest and greatest preventative and regenerative products on the market targeting Osteoarthritis.
Amniotic Stem Cell Products
Products made from the donated birth tissue of mothers who have a normal c-section delivery. They are choosing to donate their birth materials rather than have them disposed as biohazard waste.
Amniotic Tissue Injections
These injections are created by pulverizing the amniotic membrane until the pieces are small enough to flow through a hypodermic needle. The larger pieced of tissue are screened out and the remaining cells and tissue matrix remain flowable. There are stem cells and other cell lines in this product type. Some versions are cryopreserved with living cells, some are radiated and sterilized.
Amniotic Pure Fluid Injections
These injections are created from amniotic fluid which has been donated and collected during birth. The fluid is filtered and processed so there are no cells or debris in the injection. Pure fluid amniotic products contain no cells.
Amniotic Cellular Fluid Injections
These injections are created from collected amniotic fluid and are spun down in a centrifuge such that all the cells are collected in one spot. The fluid levels are adjusted and the cells are redistributed throughout the solution. The natural fluid contains reletively few cells compared to a tissue product and cells much be concentrated for effectiveness. This product contains cells, some of which are most likely stem cells.
Amniotic Membrane Patches
This product is produced by collecting an amniotic membrane and cutting that membrane into specific predetermined sizes. These patches are used for a wide variety of applications including surgeries, diabetic ulcers, and severe burns.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
This product is produced from your own blood. It is collected and spun down in a centrifuge. The white plasma at the top of the tube is the portion that is re-injected back into your body.
Adipose Stem Cells
These stem cells are collected from your own adipose tissue (fat cells). It is then processed so that only stem cells are collected. This flowable stem cell fluid is then injected back into the desired area of the patient for regenerative effects.
Bone Marrow Stem Cells
These stem cells are collected from the patients own body by inserting a collection needle into the center marrow section of certain bones. The marrow is aspirated out and processed into a product that can then be re-injected into the desired area of the body for regenerative effects.
Cord Blood Stem Cells
This product is created by processing the blood collected from the umbilical cord and placenta immediately after birth. Cord blood blood is unique in that it is a rich source of a different type of stem cells than are found in most other regenerative products and procedures. These stem cells have the ability to be used in a wide variety of serious medical conditions.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)
BHRT is a therapy program that identifies the imbalances in hormone levels that could be the underlying cause of many problems and conditions affecting a patient. The idea is to identify the imbalance and create a matching or identical treatment regiment to bring the hormone balance back to normal. Many people experience significant rejuvination effects from restoring the hormone imbalance and because of this rejuvination effect it is considered a regenerative medicine therapy.
