What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine builds on the idea of replacing damaged or diseased cells with healthy ones that trigger further regeneration in the body.

You’re probably familiar with one of the most common regenerative medicine applications: organ transplants. By replacing a damaged organ with a new, healthy one, the body can function its best.

Dr. Skubisz and Dr. Barrantes develop treatments that can help your body repair what ails it. This medical approach has been successfully used to treat a wide variety of conditions, including:

  • Aching joints
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Sexual wellness challenges
  • Heart disease

How does regenerative medicine work?

Regenerative medicine introduces healthy cells and tissues into the area in which you want to trigger healing. That introduction of healthy materials can take place in a number of different ways. True Care Health & Wellness offers three distinct types of regenerative medicine:

Stem cells

Stem cells are essentially unprogrammed cells. When introduced to a certain part of your body, they become like the cells in that area. With stem cell therapy, the influx of new, healthy cells can:

  • Stimulate the generation of new, healthy tissue
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Fight infection
  • Help dying cells survive
  • Support a healthy immune response from your body

True Care Health & Wellness works with BioGenix to ensure the stem cells they use are safely and ethically sourced.

Prolotherapy

This injection-based treatment is designed to treat joint and back pain. During prolotherapy, Dr. Skubisz or Dr. Barrantes injects the targeted area with a natural irritant.

Your body responds to the irritant by kickstarting healing in the area, using the body’s natural regenerative processes to minimize your pain.

PRP therapy

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a solution derived from your own blood. By separating the platelets  — which your body sends to an injury site to start the healing process — from your blood into a plasma, your True Care Health & Wellness practitioner derives a potent injection.

When injected at targeted areas, platelet-rich plasma can be an effective treatment for the following:

  • Joint pain
  • Injury
  • Vaginal rejuvenation
  • Erectile dysfunction treatment
  • Hair restoration
  • Skin rejuvenation

If any of these symptoms are affecting you, the doctors at True Care Health & Wellness can help.

Is regenerative medicine safe?

Yes. In fact, because regenerative medicine uses the body’s natural healing power, it’s one of the safest treatments available.
