Regenerative Medicine

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine involves replacing or regenerating diseased or damaged tissue with new healthy tissue. Doctors first began the practice of regenerative medicine in the early 20th Century with organ transplants, which continues to save lives today. However, with the aging population, the increased need for donated organs exceeds availability. 


Currently, scientists are researching how to grow tissue and organs in the lab that can replace parts of the body that can’t heal on their own, which may potentially transform health care, the effects of chronic disease, and the burden placed on those waiting for a viable organ donation. And with mesenchymal stem cells, research indicates that the body may regenerate its cells to heal itself.


The medical team at Bay Area Wellness Center is excited to offer regenerative medicine with mesenchymal stem cells. 

What are mesenchymal stem cells?

Your body has its own set of stem cells that serve as its natural repair and maintenance system. Found in your bone marrow, mesenchymal stem cells repair and maintain many types of cells in your body, including bone, cartilage, muscle, and fat.  


Current research indicates that mesenchymal stem cells may help repair damaged connective tissue from injury or disease. Additionally, there’s evidence that the mesenchymal stem cells may also help in the formation of new blood vessels, as well as reduce inflammation.


At Bay Area Wellness Center, the medical team offers mesenchymal stem cell injections as a form of regenerative medicine. The mesenchymal stem cells used for the injections come from donor cord tissue supplied by prescreened and preapproved live full-term babies. 

Am I a good candidate for regenerative medicine?

The team at Bay Area Wellness Center determines if you’re a good candidate for regenerative medicine during a consultation. A medical provider injects the mesenchymal stem cells at the Bay Area Wellness Center office in a quick procedure to the area in need of care. 


The full-service medical and chiropractic center offers a range of holistic treatments aimed at supporting your body’s self-healing abilities, including chiropractic spinal adjustments, massage therapy, and physical therapy. The team works closely with you to develop a treatment plan that helps you achieve your functional and wellness goals, which may include regenerative medicine.
