Regenerative Medicine

Regenerative Medicine: Using your body’s own natural biologics to promote healing, reduce joint pain and promote mobility and function in damaged organs and tissues. By enhancing and amplifying your body’s ability to heal and restore we can help improve your quality of life, naturally.

Your body has the natural ability to manage joint pain and reduce inflammation caused by injury or arthritis in knees, shoulders, hips, elbows, wrists and ankles. But sometimes the damage is overwhelming and the body needs some extra help.

Regenerative medicine is an advanced field of medicine focused on addressing these impaired tissues in the body, activating the body’s intrinsic healing mechanisms and supporting the creation of new cells to supplement damaged ones.

Healthcare providers knowledgeable and skilled in this area use, safe, effective therapies to encourage regeneration in damaged tissues—including knees, hips, elbows, shoulders, wrists, fingers, hair follicles and beyond—to improve patients’ level of pain, mobility and overall quality of life.

The Mayo Clinic describes regenerative medicine as “…focused on developing and applying new treatments to heal tissues and organs and restore function lost due to aging, disease, damage or defects. …Regenerative medicine goes beyond disease management to search for and discover therapies that support the body in repairing, regenerating and restoring itself to a state of well-being…regenerative medicine therapies prompt the body to enact a self-healing response. These advancements in patient care across a wide range of medical specialties point to new solutions to expand and maintain optimal health and quality of life.”

Age Management Center has been successfully using regenerative medicine for more than 10 years to reduce pain, repair knee, shoulder, hip, wrist and ankle joints, and repair the joint surfaces [cartilage]. We collect your cells and create a concentration of the newer, healthier cell cytokines and growth factors. We then reintroduce those cells in areas with pain or decreased mobility to encourage natural healing and restoration.

At the Age Management Center, our regenerative medicine program follows the same philosophy as our other health verticals – promoting holistic, personalized care to help improve the quality of life for our clients.

This means, as part of your regenerative medicine consultation, we will discuss with you the range of factors that may be contributing to your condition, and how we may be able to help. With joint pain, for example, we may suggest weight management support when appropriate to alleviate joint discomfort.

There may also be nutraceuticals or other supplements that can contribute to joint pain. We will also want to understand your level and type of physical exercises and whether or not you take advantage of specialized trainers or physical therapists. In many cases, cell therapies can be an incredible avenue for those looking to alleviate joint pain, either as a standalone therapy, or in combination with the aforementioned approaches.

Approved regenerative medicine therapies and advanced medical approaches have been widely used to address damaged tissue, alleviate joint pain, support hair growth and provide cutting-edge alternatives for improving mobility and range of motion.

Regenerative treatments can aid in alleviating arthritis-related joint pain, tendon damage and even bone-on-bone discomfort by supporting the natural repair of compromised tissues, including joint cartilage. As opposed to surgical interventions, regenerative therapies are characterized by minimal invasiveness, shorter recuperation periods, and a low likelihood of complications.

Traditionally, medical providers were taught that once the normal health of tendons, joint capsules and joint surfaces [cartilage] we were born with become damaged or simply worn-out form repeated use or trauma, the only way to treat them is through surgery.

We now know there are non-surgical, office-based, affordable treatments that are highly effective alternatives to surgery—with low risk and minimal down time. This is the power of regenerative medicine. While surgery may still be an option for advanced conditions, the healing capabilities of regenerative medical therapies make it a highly attractive alternative for the relief of pain and loss of function, without the risk, down time and recovery associated with joint pain surgery.

What Is Regenerative Medicine?

We have millions of resident cells in every tissue of our body. These are the cells that help our bodies heal, restore, fight disease, slow the aging process and stimulate longevity. For example, if you fall and skin your knee, what happens? For the next two days there’s probably a wound that bleeds then forms a scab. Within a few days, the bleeding and acute pain stop. A week later, the scab may still look awful, but it’s healing. In two weeks, the scab is gone but the area is red. By week four, you can’t tell that you fell at all, and any signs of the injury have disappeared.

How did this happen? At the point of trauma, the injured tissue sent signals to your body that help was needed. Your body quickly mobilized its natural healing substances to travel to the injured site and start the process of healing and restoring the body.

However, as we age, these resident cells decrease in number and are less effective. What’s more, our bodies don’t always send sufficient healing substances to injured tissue, or send them quickly enough to allow for proper, effective healing. The joints have reduced blood flow and it is difficult for healing cells to get to the joints to do their jobs, so we concentrate these cells and inject them right into the injury.

Through regenerative medicine therapies, we can help energize and stimulate millions, billions or even trillions of these natural “helpers” to support regeneration and healing of damaged tissue, and the resulting issues with mobility and range of motion that often come with it.

How Does Regenerative Medicine Work?

The process is called immunomodulation. At Age Management Center, we have the ability to harvest the active biological healing components that your body naturally makes, to increase the concentration and number of the healing cells, growth factors and healing cytokines, and using ultrasound guidance, transplant them back into damaged joints and painful tissues. It is simple, safe and effective.

Regenerative medicine, including immunomodulation, cellular re-transplantation and regrowth, and reducing pain caused by inflammation is not all we offer clients.

Painful joints and arthritis often need more than immunomodulation to achieve maximum relief, to enhance health and mobility and improve quality of life. Additional approaches for addressing joint pain and other pain-related conditions may include weight loss, targeted supplementation, hormone rebalancing and exercise guidance.


Regenerative Medicine is the most modern way to amplify and enhance the natural healing ability of our body’s damaged, worn-out cells, tissue, and body parts. This field of medicine uses the natural regenerative powers of the cells and tissues we were born with to encourage repair and regrowth, naturally.

Modern science has made huge progress in regenerating and healing damaged and painful joints. And while we are not at the point where, like the starfish, we can lose an arm and regrow it, every day we make progress in regenerative medicine’s ability to heal, repair, replace, lessen pain and improve mobility and function.

Regenerative medicine leverages the power of natural biologics to stimulate regeneration in the body. Autologous cells derived from one’s own bone marrow or plasma, can be redirected to damaged tissue, such as in the knees or shoulders, to support enhanced regeneration.

Therapies such as platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) have been used to address a variety of concerns* including hair restoration and tissue damage. According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, “PRP injections can be effective in treating male pattern baldness, both in preventing hair loss and promoting new hair growth. PRP can also aid in the stimulation of hair growth after hair transplants.”


Depending on the patient and his or her specific concern(s), our medical team will discuss what therapies might be best for you. A patient’s individualized plan is determined as part of the patient screening and may include recommendations for weight loss, third-party physical therapy, supplements and vitamins to support tissue and bone health, as well as advanced regenerative medicine therapies.
*The FDA has given clearance on the equipment for producing and the injections for PRP, the procedure itself remains ‘investigational’ and has not received official FDA approval. PRP is not considered a pharmaceutical substance (drug) because it is obtained from one’s own blood. (Johns Hopkins Medicine)
