Regenerative medicine is a relatively new branch of medicine, but it guarantees excellent opportunities. It is the common denominator for many medical specialties – from orthopaedics, through oncology, neurology, to dermatology or urology. Regenerative medicine is based on the knowledge of specialists in many fields including biotechnology, medicine and biomedical engineering. It is also the area of activity of scientific centers that specialise in the use of stem cells
The most important thing, however, is that it gives great hope to patients who lack adequate therapeutic solutions.
What is the goal of regenerative medicine?
Simply put, the most important goal of regenerative medicine in general is to repair, restore, and regenerate tissues and organs that have been damaged as a result of injury, birth defect or disease, as well as the aging process of the body. Regenerative medicine includes products of cell therapy, biomedical or tissue engineering.
Regenerative medicine is a huge field for action, which is why it will certainly develop even more in the next few years. In regenerative medicine, stem cells are mainly used. It’s a pool of non-specialised cells that guarantee the ability to transform into cells of any tissue. Their task is to replace “old” cells in the body with new ones. That is why the possibilities of division or differentiation are almost limitless. There are two types of stem cells depending on the source of acquisition i.e. embryonic and stem cells of tissues of an already developed organism. It is possible to collect stem cells from a donor showing tissue compatibility with the recipient or the patient himself.
What is good to know about regenerative medicine?
First of all, the essence of regenerative medicine solutions is its interdisciplinarity. A cooperation of specialised centers from various fields is key to fully exploit the potential of stem cells. You must also meet the necessary conditions that will support the creation of new tissues.
Regenerative medicine treatments stimulate the body to repair and regenerate damaged or diseased tissues and organs. This is an innovative method that finds its application also in aesthetic medicine. In our clinic we offer treatments using elements of regenerative medicine. We strive to provide our patients with modern, effective and, above all, safe solutions. Importantly, the use of regenerative medicine is a great alternative to the pharmacological treatment of various diseases.
You can choose to use regenerative medicine in surgery. This method during surgical procedures makes bone healing not only more predictable, but above all much faster. This is due to the stimulation of the body’s ability to produce its own cells, i.e. regeneration through the use of growth factors found in the blood – platelet-rich plasma.
The use of regenerative medicine
In the case of aesthetic surgery, the most important elements are plasma and stem cells. They support the healing of wounds and scars after treatments, and also guarantee a young, radiant skin appearance and all that is possible to due the transplantation of the patient’s own cells and tissues. This is the main goal of regenerative medicine. Stem cells can be isolated mainly from bone marrow, peripheral blood and adipose tissue.
Regenerative medicine is also used in orthopaedics. This is an innovative method of regenerating damaged or diseased tissues. You can opt for stem cell treatment during joint regeneration.
