Regenerative Medicine, as an specialty inside of the healthcare industry, is one of the fastest growing fields in medicine. The advancements being made in research and treatment availability are giving patients alternatives to the traditional offerings of prescription medications and surgery. While still a nascent specialty, the outcomes are impressive among physicians who have expertise in the field.

Expertise includes using defined products, therapies and protocols specific to the individual for a personalized treatment plan. From what we have seen, a one-size-fits all approach to treating pain across the entire patient population does always produce positive outcomes. When choosing a provider, it is important to understand their background and understanding of regenerative medicine.

Many practices are marketing “stem cells” while using products which contain no live stem cells at all, either intentionally or unintentionally misleading patients about the treatment therapies. So, it is critical for patients to do their homework and due diligence before laying down their hard earned cash for therapies which may or may not be right for them and their injuries.

Practices such as The Regen Room have a comprehensive product portfolio and physicians with deep knowledge and expertise in regenerative medicine, sports medicine and orthopedics. If a patient is not a candidate for regenerative medicine, they are honest in their assessment and possible outcomes. In the field of regenerative medicine, this is a refreshing approach. I won’t get into all the myriad reasons why their treatment therapies stand out among the crowd, but trust me when I tell you they are doing it the right way.
