Biologic Agent FAQ

What is the potential benefit?

Regenerative medicine treatments with biologic agents provide a non-surgical treatment option for relief of pain and promotion of natural healing and tissue regeneration. The potential benefits for patients with a painful or degenerative condition are numerous, including pain relief and improved functionality.

Who is a suitable candidate?

At HOGUE CLINICS, regenerative medicine treatments with biologic agents are appropriate for anyone experiencing a painful or degenerative musculoskeletal condition or condition associated with aging or loss of vitality, including scalp hair loss and deteriorating men’s sexual health conditions. Potentially, this includes the entire aging adult population. For painful or degenerative musculoskeletal conditions, it includes those with osteoarthritis affecting body areas such as the knees and shoulders, as well as those with painful or degernative ligament, tendon, and muscle conditions.

Who is NOT a suitable candidate?

At HOGUE CLINICS, regenerative medicine treatments may not be appropriate for individuals with the following health conditions:

  1. an individual with active cancer not in remission for at least 5 years; or prior lymphoma or leukemia
  2. a patient with a current or active infection
  3. a patient needing to take blood thinners (Warfarin or Coumadin)
  4. a patient needing to take anti-platelet medications (such as to prevent stroke or stenosis of a coronary artery stent)
  5. a patient with complex or severe medical issues

What body areas can be treated?

At HOGUE CLINICS, regenerative medicine treatments for musculoskeletal areas using biologic agents include the peripheral joints (knees and shoulders being the most common; spine and hips excluded), tendons, ligaments, muscles.

At HOGUE CLINICS regenerative medicine treatments for non-orthopedic, soft tissue areas include: (1) the scalp for hair loss/hair thinning/hair balding; (2) the male penis for erectile dysfunction or desire for male enhancement.

What are the risks?

Regenerative medicine treatments at HOGUE CLINICS using biologic agents are safely performed by Dr. Hogue with strict adherence to aseptic conditions and pose minimal risk. You may experience localized soreness for a few days following your regenerative medicine treatment at HOGUE CLINICS. A consent form at HOGUE CLINICS comprehensively discusses the risks and benefits associated with regenerative medicine treatment offerings.

How do I obtain a price quote for a regenerative medicine treatment at HOGUE CLINICS?

A price quote for a regenerative medicine treatment is provided by Dr. Hogue during your complimentary consultation at HOGUE CLINICS.

How do I know if I am a suitable candidate?

If you can make the trip, we recommend that you schedule an appointment for a regenerative medicine Consultation to determine if you are a suitable candidate. To expedite this process, we ask that you bring with you a printed report of the IMAGING STUDIES you had, including MRI or Xray imaging studies, as well as any other pertinent medical records.

Where do the biologic agents come from?

The autologous biologic agents used at HOGUE CLINICS for regenerative medicine treatments are harvested from the patient’s own body in the case of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), micro-fragmented adipose tissue (MFAT). In the case of allogeneic biologic agents such as non-cellular placental-derived MSC Exosomes, they are obtained from KIMERA LABS (USA).

What is the success rate?

Since 2011, HOGUE CLINICS has been offering regenerative medicine treatments using biologic agents. Our success rate for our regenerative medicine treatments is based on (1) direct patient feedback at follow-up appointments done six months or more following a regenerative medicine procedure; (2) patient reviews for the care they received at HOGUE CLINICS. The success rate is reportedly very high as HOGUE CLINICS is a results-oriented medical practice. Adjustments to technique and protocols are constantly being evaluated and tweaked too ensure the best possible outcome for our patients, especially in the setting of Regenerative Medicine, where the specialty continues to evolve.

Each individual person is unique. All individuals do not respond the same way to a regenerative medicine treatment or receive the same results. Individual results may vary.

Does a treatment consist of one injection or multiple injections?

The number of injections per treatment session will vary, depending on the number of areas treated, the number of biologic agents, used, and the extent, severity, and complexity of the degenerative condition being treated.
