Regenerative medicine is a rapidly emerging and ground-breaking field of therapy, particularly in the area of orthopedics. This approach offers a non-surgical alternative that may help patients postpone or avoid surgery in many cases. The primary objective of regenerative medicine is to improve outcomes by assisting or boosting the body’s natural healing process. For some patients, it can also be used in combination with surgery to potentially enhance the healing and recovery process further.
Orthobiologics refer to natural substances used by doctors to help injuries heal more rapidly and treat pain from arthritis, injuries, repetitive use, and natural aging. They have the potential to improve the healing time of injured muscles, tendons, and ligaments. They have been shown to aid in tissue regeneration and the reduction of pain and inflammation to improve joint function.
There are several different types of therapy, including platelet-rich plasma (PRP), bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC), adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells, and human amniotic membrane (AM)-derived tissues, and cartilage transplantation each with its own benefits and limitations.
