Webster Regenerative Medicine
Regenerative Medicine is an exciting new field in medicine that treats injuries by harnessing your body’s own regenerative capabilities.
When tissues such as ligaments, tendons, cartilage, and muscles are injured, your body uses its own healing ability to rebuild the damaged tissue. Most of the healing factors and important nutrients that are needed for repairing the tissue are brought to the site of injury through your blood vessels. However, in certain areas of the body that have limited blood supply such as ligaments and tendons, the natural healing process may be very slow or inadequate.
Regenerative medicine uses innovative technologies to augment the natural healing capabilities of your body and may be effective in treating longstanding injuries and conditions such as:
- Arthritis of the shoulder, knee, hip, and ankle
- Cartilage injuries or defects
- Tears in the meniscus or labrum
- Tendon injuries such as Achilles tendon, tennis elbow, and golfer’s elbow
- Ligament injuries
- Muscles injuries
- Chronic sports injuries
