In recent times there has been an amazing shift in medicine. A profession once dominated by drugs and surgery is now turning to regenerative technology. With the evolution of regenerative medicine, doctors and their patients are turning to stem cells for relief. Why attempt to remove a structure or inhibit function with drugs to reduce pain when you can help the body with its own regenerative healing ability?
The ability to repair and regenerate injured tissue without harmful drugs or dangerous surgery is certainly something that most people welcome with open arms. Unfortunately, many people have never heard about regenerative medicine nor do they realize how long this technology has been available. In the beginning these procedures were used to treat high-profile, professional athletes. Now these procedures are readily available and effective in the treatment of musculoskeletal pain.
Dr. Magaziner explains: “PRP (platelet rich plasma) and stem cell treatments have grown increasingly common in the sports medicine world in recent years. During a PRP procedure, the patient’s blood is drawn and put in a centrifuge to separate out platelet-containing plasma from the red blood cells. The plasma is then injected back into the patient’s injury. PRP treatment is thought to accelerate and/or maximize the signals an injury site sends to the body in order to continue the healing process. Adult stem cells are able to grow and become a cell for a specific tissue or organ, according to the National Institutes of Health.”
With the recent emergence of “Orthopedic Regenerative Medicine” there is a new natural alternative to just blocking or relieving pain. Dr. Edward S. Magaziner of North Brunswick is a pioneer in the field of orthopedic regenerative Medicine using prolotherapy, platelet rich plasma (PRP), and Stem Cell Grafts since 2001. He has lectured extensively and has taught others on this groundbreaking technique. He is well known around the country in his field and is considered by many to be one of the top treating pain management physicians in the New Jersey region.
We have successfully treated thousands of patients with regenerative medicine for joint, tendon, and ligament injuries including patients with rotator cuff tears, tennis elbow, wrist pain, neck pain, back pain, joint pain, and pain from arthritis. These are safe procedures with no serious side effects. We also have regenerative procedures to help with cosmetic and functional conditions such as acne, wrinkles, hair loss, and erectile dysfunction.
