Advanced Regenerative Therapy

Regenerate an Injured Body, Naturally

We use regenerative medicine at our Connecticut practice to treat diseases and conditions. These advanced therapies seek to repair, replace, or restore function to damaged cells, tissues, or organs at the cellular level.

What is Regenerative Therapy?

Advanced Regenerative Therapy uses regenerative medicine to help a body's natural ability to heal itself – or “regenerate.” By activating built-in healing systems we can help the body renew injured tissues at the cellular level. Platlet-Rich Plasma Therapy and Autologous Stem Cell Therapy are two methods.

While much of what we do at HyperFit MD focuses on prevention, we use these therapies to treat diseases and conditions after they occur.

A More Natural Treatment

A big benefit of regenerative medicine is that it uses a person’s own cells and tissues for treatment. Since advanced regenerative therapies rely on your own cells to treat you own body, they greatly reduce the chance of rejection by the body and allow for a more natural healing.

In some cases, an advanced regenerative therapy can allow a person to avoid the need for synthetically-produced medicines or even surgery.

Types of Advanced Regenerative Therapies We Offer

Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy takes blood from a person’s arm and processes it to isolate cell fragments known as platelets. (Platelets contain growth factors that stimulate regrowth.) The altered blood, or plasma, is then injected into an injured part of the body, prompting the body's own healing mechanisms.

PRP therapy is very often used to treat joint and knee pain, and in some cases allows a patient to avoid surgery.

Autologous Stem Cell Therapy

Autologous stem cell therapy, or autologous stem cell transplantation, uses your body's healthy blood cells to replace bone marrow that's not working properly.

It is often used after chemotherapy or radiation. Such treatments can destroy cancer cells, but can also destroy healthy, blood-producing stem cells in the bone marrow. This transplant removes a patient's own healthy stem cells prior to treatment and safely returns them to the body after, restoring damage caused in the interim.

Regenerative Therapy FAQs

What to know

What happens after regenerative treatment?

Regenerative medicine replaces, or "regenerates" human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function in your body. In some cases a target area that is damaged or in pain will be restored to normal functionality following treatment. In other cases the surrounding areas will be treated to help to reduce pain and inflammation.

Are regenerative therapies safe?

Yes! Both Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy and Autologous Stem Cell Therapy
use a simple blood draw, similar to when you would give blood a typical doctor's visit. Following treatment, you may experience some soreness or bruising at the injection site.

Overall, advanced regenerative therapies are low-risk procedures that are generally considered safe for most people. A big reason for this is because regenerative medicine relies on your own tissues and blood cells for treatment. However, it is very important to only undergo an advanced regenerative therapy with a medical practitioner trained in regenerative medicine, such as with Dr. Guglin at our practice in Milford, Connectictut.

There are some instances when a regenerative therapy might not be recommended. For instance they are not recommended for people with certain medical conditions, such as Hepatitis C, HIV, or AIDS.
