REGENERATIVE CELL THERAPY: WHO WILL BENEFIT?
Joint pain is now a chronic problem amongst young people and is caused by a number of factors such as physically strenuous jobs, injuries, traumatic accidents or sedentary lifestyle. Currently, these individuals are advised temporary measures such as painkillers and physiotherapy to abate their joint pain. This is because knee or hip replacement surgery may not be advisable for individuals up to 55 years of age. However, if the diagnosis reveals early stage tissue damage, these people may be at risk of developing osteoarthritis. Now, with Regenerative Cell Therapy from RMS Regrow , these patients can get a natural and permanent solution to their cartilage and bone problems.
CHONDRON – Cartilage Cell Therapy
Cartilage is the soft tissue present in all the joints of the body such as knee, ankle, shoulder, etc. Cartilage once damaged, cannot repair itself. This poses risk of permanent loss of cartilage requiring knee replacement in future. To regenerate a patient’s cartilage, a small piece of cartilage tissue is harvested and sent to RMS Regrow laboratory. In 3 weeks, patient specific cells are cultured and sent back to the hospital for implantation leading to tissue regeneration, thus allowing the patient to regain active lifestyle including sports.
OSSRON – Bone Cell Therapy
Avascular Necrosis, a bone degenerative condition often leads to collapse of the hip joint requiring hip replacement surgery. To regenerate a patient’s bone, a small amount of body fluid is extracted and cultured over 4 weeks in RMS Regrow GMP certified lab to custom-prepare bone cells. These cells, upon implantation, form new three dimensional bone helping the patient get rid of his or her pain. It is important to understand that these two procedures are not recommended for patients with irreversible damage of cartilage and bone, and therefore, most patients in the 65 years+ age group may require joint replacement surgery.
