Regenerative Medicine in Southwest Louisiana
What is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine is a revolutionary treatment approach that harnesses the power of the body’s own cells for accelerated healing of injuries and to reduce pain and limitations from osteoarthritis. Advanced biologic therapies allow our physicians to use a patient’s own blood and bone marrow for the non-surgical treatment of musculoskeletal pain.
The Center for Regenerative Medicine is affiliated with iGenesis, a collaborative network of orthopedic providers who offer standardized biologic therapies. After researching and studying the therapy platforms of several different providers, Center for Orthopaedics chose iGenesis because we believe their approach provides the most advanced therapies that follow proven principles of cell harvesting and treatment protocols. Using iGenesis technology and fluoroscopic guidance, exact amounts of cells are extracted and applied to the area of damaged tissue. The non-surgical outpatient procedure takes approximately 20 minutes.
Potential benefits of treatment include reduced pain, improved healing, no threat of rejection of your own cells, increased participation in activities and maintaining independence longer.
