Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine focuses on repairing or replacing damaged or diseased tissues with functional, healthy tissue. Your own body contains all the resources it needs to heal itself. The field of regenerative medicine aims to stimulate natural tissue repair and relieve pain without surgery.

Because every patient has unique needs, Dr. Ascencio offers a variety of regenerative medicine treatments at Empower Medical Center, including:

Platelet-rich plasma

Empower Medical Center was one of the first clinics in the Kansas City area to offer platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. This powerful treatment option stimulates blood flow and rebuilds damaged tissue, like cartilage or bone.

Platelets are an important part of your body’s natural healing process. In addition to forming blood clots, platelets contain many growth factors that repair tissue damage after an injury or disease like arthritis.

Amniotic cells

Dr. Ascencio and the team at Empower Medical Center use Predictive Biotech amniotic membrane cells to promote tissue repair. Predictive Biotech uses a proprietary purification process in FDA-approved facilities. This guarantees their cells contain the highest possible concentration of beneficial agents, including growth factors.

What is regenerative medicine used for?

Regenerative medicine may facilitate soft tissue repair and recovery in cases where disease or injury caused tissue damage. Dr. Ascencio may recommend regenerative medicine if you’ve already tried more conventional treatments, like physical therapy and medications, without success.

You may be a candidate for regenerative medicine if you suffer from one or more of the following conditions:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Tendinitis
  • Sports injuries
  • Diabetic ulcers

Without effective treatment, these conditions often cause persistent pain and mobility restrictions that can negatively affect your quality of life.  

How can I learn more about regenerative medicine?

If you’re interested in including regenerative medicine in your healing process, Dr. Ascencio and the team at Empower Medical Center can create a customized treatment plan for you. Because this field is constantly evolving with new information and techniques, they offer free educational seminars where you can learn more from local regenerative medicine experts.

The team at Empower Medical Center encourages patients to ask questions so they can make informed decisions about their health.
