About Regenerative Medicine
Regenerative medicine is a cutting-edge specialty field that uses biological materials and state-of-the-art techniques to replace damaged tissue or stimulate the body's ability to heal and repair itself. These revolutionary therapies can be used to successfully treat an array of conditions that might otherwise require surgical intervention, such as:
- Heel Pain/Plantar Fasciitis
- Arch Pain
- Ball of Foot Pain
That's not all—regenerative treatments can also relieve pain and inflammation, reduce your need for pain-management medications, and speed up the recovery process so you can get back on your feet faster.
Our Regenerative Treatment Options
Our wellness center offers a variety of treatments designed to stimulate tissue replacement, regeneration, and rejuvenation. Here's a peek at the regenerative therapy options available at our Upper West Side practice.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections
PRP injections are an innovative therapy that can serve as an effective alternative to surgery in the treatment of common foot and ankle issues. Created by spinning a sample of your blood in a centrifuge to separate and concentrate the platelets, this platelet-rich plasma is injected into your foot or ankle at the site of the injury. The highly concentrated platelets restore blood flow to the affected area and stimulate healthy blood vessel and tissue formation, spurring revascularization and speeding up the healing process. PRP therapy offers numerous benefits, with little to no risk of adverse side effects.
Stem Cell Injections
This isn't your ordinary injection therapy. Stem cell injections are a safe and effective regenerative treatment that lets you harness your body's innate healing abilities. Whereas cortisone and steroid shots provide temporary pain relief at best, injectable stem cells contain growth factors that restore and rejuvenate degenerated tissue, as well as other ingredients that lubricate tendons and joints, ease pain, and restore mobility. This makes stem cell injections an ideal treatment for soft tissue injuries, osteoarthritis, plantar fasciitis, and a wide variety of other conditions.
Remy Laser Therapy is a safe, effective, and non-invasive treatment that uses focused light to increase blood supply and circulation to your area of injury, stimulating and accelerating your body's natural healing response. This revolutionary procedure relieves pain, reduces inflammation, and promotes soft tissue healing and wound repair without negative side effects. A typical treatment lasts just 10 to 15 minutes (depending on the size of the affected area) and is practically sensation-free, so the only thing you'll feel is the excitement of being able to get back to doing the activities you enjoy.
