Treatable Conditions With Regenerative Medicine
Advancements in the field of medicine occur slowly. As we learn more about our bodies and the systems interwoven within the human network, we are able to improve the current treatment standards with better outcomes. The most recent advancements in Sports Medicine and Orthopedic care is the utilization of Mesenchymal Stem Cells in healing injuries in bone, joint, tendon, and soft tissue. The same process that our bodies naturally heal and regenerate tissue throughout your lifetime is utilized and optimized.
The concept is not new, but it has been refined and improved with a better understanding of the process. This flies against the current standard of invasive surgeries to try and correct mechanical derangements in the musculoskeletal system. We have found that your current musculoskeletal system and biomechanics cannot be improved by surgical hardware. In most cases, optimizing your body’s natural healing mechanism is the best option to correct an injury. Invasive surgeries are still an important and vital part of medicine. But the advent of regenerative medicine treatments, allows the patient to only have invasive surgeries when all other treatment options have been exhausted.
At the Michigan Center of Regenerative Medicine, Dr. Nabity and Dr. Santa Ana have adopted their expertise in musculoskeletal, sports, and pain management with Regenerative medicine, and pioneered Regenerative Orthopedics in Michigan. They have brought treatments that were only available to elite athletes back to the community. We utilize your own healing cells to improve your function and get you back to living an active lifestyle.

Every year, more and more patients are choosing to fix their chronic orthopedic condition with a Regenerative Medicine procedure rather than surgery – because it works!
