Regenerative medicine at Raleigh Spine and Pain Center includes platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cell injections. These injections reduce ongoing degeneration-related discomfort in your hips, knees, shoulders, elbows, ankles, and other joints, as well as spine pain linked with disc or facet joint degeneration.
Some of the many benefits you can expect by choosing regenerative medicine injections at Raleigh Spine and Pain Center include:
Regenerative medicine injections enhance your body’s natural ability to heal. They reduce the need to take pain medication or undergo invasive procedures.
To find out if you’re a candidate for regenerative medicine at Raleigh Spine and Pain Center, Dr. Buttar discusses your symptoms and medical history with you. He checks your vital signs and completes a physical exam to assess joint structure, function, and range of motion.
He may order blood tests, MRIs, ultrasounds, CT scans, X-rays, or other imaging procedures to determine the type and severity of joint problems you struggle with.
During regenerative medicine treatment, Dr. Buttar offers the following:
PRP injections use platelet-rich plasma from your own blood. Your provider takes a sample of blood from your arm and purifies the PRP in a centrifuge. Then they inject PRP into injured, painful joints to stimulate new cell generation.
Dr. Buttar may inject stem cells sourced from other areas of your body, or purified stem cells from a lab, into targeted joints to relieve your discomfort.
After PRP injections, you can expect redness and swelling at the injection sites, but these side effects don’t last long. Over the next few weeks and months, as your joints begin to heal, you can expect improved musculoskeletal functioning, less pain, and stronger joints.
