Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is Regenerative Medicine?

Regenerative medicine is a fairly new area of medicine that focuses on repairing diseased or damaged tissue by creating new, healthier living tissue through the stimulation of your body’s own natural healing power. Orthopaedic experts, like those at OrthoCincy Wellington Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine, have been on the forefront of regenerative medicine for many years, developing various strategies to help heal bones, cartilage, and ligaments with cell therapy.

What Treatments are Considered Regenerative Medicine?

Cell therapy is the most common type of regenerative medicine, and includes stem cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma (PRP).

  • Stem Cell Therapy: Stem cells are the undifferentiated cells in your body, which means the cells have the ability to transform themselves into any cell your body needs. In regenerative medicine, stem cells are injected into injured tissue to help regenerate new, healthier tissue, muscle, blood vessels, and nerves to fully restore function.
  • Platelet-Rich Plasma: PRP is a blood product made from a sample of your own blood that’s rich in the platelets and growth factors that support body healing. After blood is drawn from your arm, it is placed in a centrifuge that separates the liquid portion from the solid portion to create the concentrated therapeutic blood. PRP is then injected into your diseased or injured body part and the platelets and growth factors work on healing the tissue.


Joint replacement is also considered a form of regenerative medicine that uses an artificial part to replace your diseased joint, restoring function and improving quality of life. 

What Injuries Can Regenerative Medicine Treat?

OrthoCincy Wellington Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine use regenerative medicine as a treatment option for a number of orthopaedic conditions, including:

  • Sports injuries

Donald C., a retired attorney, suffered from back pain for many years. He found it difficult to play golf, stand, and walk. He tried physical therapy and injections. Epidural steroid injections helped him for a few months. As he did more injections, he found they helped less and less. After attending a seminar on stem cells and an in-depth consultation, he decided to proceed with stem cells for his back pain. He underwent a procedure at a surgery center where stem cells were taken from his pelvis and placed in a centrifuge. The stem cells were concentrated and injected into the pain areas in his back under an x-ray. At six weeks after the procedure, he started doing planks! He was very happy with his pain relief saying he felt 90% better! He recommends the procedure
