Historically, joint-pain sufferers were told that joint replacement surgery, an often painful and sometimes uncertain treatment with potential for complications and long-term recovery, was their only relief.
But history has changed.
Regenerative Medicine Clinic of Wilmington (Regen Med), the region’s first and only regenerative medicine-dedicated clinic, offers a non-surgical joint pain treatment option using the body’s own cells to repair damaged or injured areas, thus delaying or completely eliminating the need for surgery.
Regenerative medicine takes advantage of the full complement of non-surgical treatment options, from rest and Tylenol® to cartilage restoration (ACI) to cellular- and molecular-based therapies for arthritic joint pain (CBT).
We were first nationally to use stem cells in the treatment of shoulder disorders and first in southeastern North Carolina to introduce stem cell science and technology. Regen Med’s fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon and regenerative medicine expert Austin Yeargan III, MD, has been named one of the top 10 Orthopedic leaders to know in internationally published Becker’s Orthopedic & Spine Review.
