Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine is a subspecialty of medicine that uses various naturally occurring processes to regrow, repair, or replace diseased cells, tissues, and organs. 

This branch of medicine aims to harness the body’s self-healing capabilities to repair damage and improve your long-term health.

What kind of regenerative treatments do you offer?

At OasisMD, the team combines their knowledge to provide a combination of regenerative therapies. 

Plastic surgeon Dr. James Chao specializes in stem cell therapy. Stem cells are your body’s most basic raw material and these cells can develop to perform any kind of specialized cell function your body needs. Stem cell therapy is used to generate healthy cells to replace damaged or diseased cells in your body.

Orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine practitioner, Dr. David Chao, specializes in stem cell and platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) therapy. Platelets are components of your blood responsible for clotting and healing when you suffer an injury. PRP harnesses the platelet’s growth and healing factors to speed up your recovery process or to repair cells and tissues damaged by diseases. 

Regenerative medicine is a promising field that is also known to offer pain relief from chronic issues, improve your physical appearance, and help prolong your long-term health as you age.

What are some issues you can treat with regenerative medicine?

Some common conditions the specialists at OasisMD treat with regenerative medicine are:

Arthritis

The practice offers both stem cell and PRP therapy to patients with types of arthritis like osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. 

These regenerative therapies can help restore heavily damaged joints that can’t function to their full capacity. It can also help regenerate cartilage, reduce inflammation, and increase the number of healthy cells in the diseased joint.

Tendon injuries

If you suffer a tendon injury like a rotator cuff tear or patellar tendonitis, stem cell and PRP therapy can help accelerate healing, reduce inflammation and pain, and restore a fuller range of motion. 

Facial rejuvenation

Stem cell and PRP therapy create new collagen and blood vessels, which helps improve the elasticity of your skin to provide a youthful glow.

Soft tissue reconstruction

Soft tissue defects happen because of injury or diseases. Regenerative medicine can help by promoting new tissue to grow and repair existing, damaged tissue. 

Hair loss

PRP triggers natural hair growth by increasing blood supply to your hair follicles and increasing the thickness of your hair shaft.

Breast reconstruction and augmentation

Regenerative medicine, particularly stem cell therapy, can fill any imperfections in your breasts and help create an optimal breast shape with natural-feeling tissue.

The specialists at OasisMD use some of these procedures as an alternative to surgery, or in combination with other surgical treatments.
