Helping the body heal itself...

Stem cells are one of the most widely known components of regenerative

therapy. Generally, these procedures involve harvesting biological materials from

the patient so in a sense the body is helping heal itself.

  • Stem cells can be used to grow new tissue of any type in the body if
    injected at the site of injured or damaged tissues and activated.


  • Growth factors is a term for biological materials that stimulate healing as a kind of catalyst. These can be used in conjunction with stem cell injections, or used to stimulate growth and repair.

  • Other biological material may be used in the therapy. Doctors can construct a type of “bio-scaffold” at the site of an injury, around which new tissue will grow.
