Regenerative medicine is an approach to therapy that employs human genes, proteins and cells to re-grow, restore, or provide mechanical replacements for tissues that have been injured by trauma, damaged by disease, or worn by time and offers the prospect of curing diseases that cannot be treated effectively today, including those related to aging. Regenerative medicine is an ever-developing area of medicine with the potential to fully heal damaged tissue and organs, offering solutions and hope for people who have conditions that today are considered to be beyond repair.
The Role of Stem Cells in Regenerative Medicine
Stem cells have the ability to develop — through a process called differentiation — into a variety of cell types, such as skin cells, brain cells, lung cells and so on. Stem cells are an integral component of regenerative medicine, as they open the door to new clinical applications. As a huge benefit to regenerative medicine, stem cells can even differentiate into certain cell types that the body stops producing after you are born like cells associated with the nervous system. Please note that we DO NOT use embryonic stem cells in our regenerative medicine techniques but rather stem cells harvested from your own body. You can learn more about the procedure here.
How Can Regenerative Medicine Help You
The applications for regenerative medicine are seemingly limitless. Firstly regenerative medicine can be used to treat injuries that are considered to be beyond repair. It can also be used for cosmetic procedures to heal aging and damaged skin tissue that has been damaged throughout life. Regenerative medicine can also be used to treat hair loss and other conditions such as joint damage.
