Regenerative Medicine Treatments Available at Annapolis Pain Management
RESToR is a top-tier cellular regenerative medicine product derived from Wharton’s Jelly located on the maternal side of the umbilical cord.
RESToR contains cytokines, growth factors, mesenchymal stem cells, collagens, proteins, peptides and numerous other components need to regenerate injured tissue.
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are undifferentiated cells that have the capacity to change into any specific cell type in the body.
These cells, once deployed to an area of injury/disease, can readily change into the cell type that is needed to repair.
Moreover, MSCs are directed to the body’s cell signals that recruit them to the site of an injury.
Once they reach this area, they dock and begin repairing by releasing the cytokines, growth factors and other components that are needed in the healing process.
A regenerative medicine treatment utilizing RESToR is an ideal choice for individuals who are dealing with any of a variety of injuries or conditions that are interfering with their everyday lives.
RESToR is especially beneficial for patients over forty who, due to the aging process, have less viable cells than a younger patient would repair.
RESToR is recovered from healthy, carefully screened mothers at the time of scheduled cesarean sections and processed in accordance with FDA and AATB (American Association of Tissue Banks) regulations and standards.
Acellular Regenerative Medicine Therapy
RENyTe offers similar benefits to stem cell injections, contains many regenerative components such as cytokines, growth factors, hyaluronic acid, and peptides.
RENyTe is derived from the Wharton’s Jelly located on the maternal side of the umbilical cord. Wharton’s Jelly is a clear gel-like tissue that contains up to fifty times more hyaluronic acid and growth factors than amniotic fluid, further increasing regenerative success.
These higher concentrations of growth factors have been shown to prevent cell death.
RENyTe is recovered from healthy, carefully screened mothers at the time of scheduled cesarean sections and processed in accordance with FDA and AATB (American Association of Tissue Banks) regulations and standards.
Amniotic Fluid Therapy
Patients with mild to moderate pain may consider the rejuvenating qualities provided by RELeV.
This all-natural regenerative product, which is offered by New Life Regenerative Medicine at clinics located throughout the United States, is a liquid amnion allograft composed of amniotic fluid and features many components that enhance your body’s natural healing process.
The amnion (innermost layer of the placenta) protects the fetus during development, and it can also provide the same protection to injured or traumatized tissue.
A protein-rich fluid with proven regenerative potential, its components regulate and maintain regenerative tissue processes.
RELeV contains collagen substrates, growth factors, amino acids, polyamides, lipids, carbohydrates, cytokines, and extracellular matrix molecules such as hyaluronic acids and fibronectin, all components that are needed for tissue regeneration.
As is the case with stem cell treatments, RELeV uses the body’s own repair mechanisms to promote healing.
This treatment option is created using amniotic fluid derived from placental tissue obtained during scheduled cesarean sections from well-screened donors.
RELeV offers several components that make it an ideal choice for patients considering regenerative medicine options.
The advantages of RELeV include the fact that:
- Like a stem cell treatments, RELeV has the potential to help with inflammation almost immediately and may continue to restore function for longer periods of time than other regenerative medicine treatments.
- The cells in RELeV can differentiate into several different cell types; they are a virtual “blank slate.”
- The cells are immune-privileged, meaning there is minimal chance of being rejected by the recipient.
- RELeV is administered through a simple in-office procedure, reducing the length of office visits.
- It may be more effective than other treatments, particularly for older patients.
RELeV is used for several different applications in which stem cell treatments may be effective, including pain management for chronic conditions and joint disorders, anti-aging and aesthetic treatments, injury recovery, hair restoration, and wound treatment. It may also be used to potentially speed recovery following spinal surgery or to promote the healing of a spinal condition so that invasive treatments may be avoided.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative Medicine is a form of tissue engineering and molecular biology which deals with the “process of replacing, engineering or regenerating human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function”. When injured or invaded by disease, our bodies have the innate response to heal and defend.
Harnessing and enhancing the body’s own regenerative powers is a medical practice at the frontier of present-day advancements whose properties may seem miraculous to those who benefit from them. The miracle, however, is the result of scientific exploration that has begun to unlock and utilize the body’s extraordinary ability to heal and restore itself.
Cells are the building blocks of tissue, and tissues are the basic unit of function in the body. Generally, groups of cells make and secrete their own support structures, called an extracellular matrix.
This matrix, or scaffold, does more than just support the cells; it also acts as a relay station for various signaling molecules. Thus, cells receive messages from many sources that become available from the local environment.
Each signal can start a chain of responses that determine what happens to the cell. Through medical technology we can now understand how individual cells respond to signals, interact with their environment and organize themselves into a healing process.
Scaffolds are created utilizing various regenerative medicine therapies allowing for the tissue “self-assemble”.
Are these Treatments Safe?
In short, YES. Annapolis Pain Management uses the best options available for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Based treatments. New Life Regenerative products are sourced from donated umbilical cord, which comes from safe hospital sources.
It is screened through regulated, independent testing to meet the industry’s highest standards. Consistent concentrations make these cells easy to use in precise, individual applications. New Life Regenerative Medicine's lab is compliant with the FDA’s Current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) standards.
New Life uses only umbilical cord and amniotic tissue derived regenerative medicine products. This causes no pain for the patient as there is no extraction or procedure required to obtain the stem cells and other regenerative properties involved with more traditional stem cell therapy Annapolis MD procedures.
New Life Regenerative medicine Products Contain No Known Proteins That Can Cause A Cellular Rejection In Patients, Meaning No Adverse Reactions
Research has shown that umbilical cord-derived stem cells are not susceptible to malignant transformation in a serum-free medium, making them safe for therapeutic use in patients.
New Life products are produced in a cGMP lab that receives all cord tissue/blood donations from hospitals directly to the facility, which guarantees minimal handling and a lower risk of cell loss or contamination.
Are these Treatments Painful?
No! In most cases, regenerative medicine therapy requires a simple in-office procedure that is mostly painless and takes very little time.
Local anesthetic is typically used to numb the injection site and guided imaging helps with determining precise placement of the injected medicine.
