Most hospitals around the country have postponed elective surgeries, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This has left many patients in immense pain, with no real answer as to how or when they will be able to feel relief again. For these patients, regenerative medicine may be an option to finally find relief and avoid invasive surgery altogether.
Advantages of Regenerative Medicine Compared to Invasive Surgery
Many hospitals around the country are quick to suggest surgery for knee, shoulder, back and other joint issues. At The Michigan Center for Regenerative Medicine, we’ve seen success with regenerative medicine treatments as an alternative to surgery. Below are several key advantages of regenerative medicine compared to traditional surgery:
- Less Downtime – One of the primary benefits of regenerative medicine is the reduced downtime when compared to traditional surgery. With regenerative medicine treatments, you should begin to feel relief relatively quickly and will often not have to be immobilized for an extended period of time.
- Outpatient Setting – All our regenerative medicine procedures are completed in an outpatient setting, which helps to reduce the risk of contracting hospital borne viruses and bacteria. This is especially important in light of the COVID-19 epidemic.
- Additional Treatment Options – It’s also important to understand that regenerative medicine treatments don’t preclude you from having surgery in the future. While we hope that these treatments will offer sufficient relief, they do not prevent you from being able to have surgery in the future, if you so choose.
- Allow Hospitals to Focus on COVID-19 – We’re in unprecedented times where hospitals across the country are being stressed to the max due to COVID-19. By having your procedure completed in an outpatient setting, you’re doing your part to allow hospital personnel to focus on those dealing with this terrible virus.
