Bio-cellular treatments using fat aspirate concentrate (FAC) and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) are used to promote the repair of degenerative or damaged tissue by harnessing the natural healing ability of a vast array of regenerative cell populations. The mission at Minnesota Regenerative Medicine is to promote natural healing using autologous bio-cellular agents to promote the natural cure and treatment of degenerative skin, soft tissue, and musculoskeletal tissues, to relieve pain, and to improve the functionality and quality of patient’s lives.
The Complexity of the First Stem Cell
Mankind in all of its wisdom, ingenuity and experience still cannot create a human cell or synthesize something so marvelous as a single fertilized egg destined to become so much more. Ponder the marvel a mother’s fertilized egg dividing and differentiating to create human form and function. A single cell becoming trillions of cells, each cell perfectly programmed to differentiate into the complex tissues of our body, each working together to create a healthy, fully functioning human being with complex motor function, special senses, reproductive capacity, intelligence and much more.
Our Role as Catalysts
At Minnesota Regenerative Medicine (MRM), while we are physicians and surgical specialists, we are mindful and respectful of our role as “mere catalysts” when performing regenerative medicine treatments. We realize that we cannot accurately predict the individual generative and regenerative capability of any bio-cellular treatments for our patients. For each individual possesses a unique set of capabilities and limitations. We do know that there are surplus regenerative cell populations mingled throughout the tissues of the body, especially within fat tissue and blood.
Renewal, Not the Status Quo
If we were all the same, races would not be run to determine who is the fastest. With time passage during adult life, each human being experiences a slowdown and gradual decay of his or her generative and regenerative capabilities. Regenerative medicine serves to restore and replete those capabilities in affected areas when they manifest as pain, degeneration, injury, and functional impairment. By removing and reshuffling bio-cellular agents from surplus areas (fat tissue and blood), then deploying or inserting them into depleted, degenerative areas as fat aspirate concentrate (FAC) and platelet-rich plasma (PRP), the practice of “Regenerative Medicine” is performed. Regenerative medicine seeks renewal, not the status quo. Regenerative medicine is not about placing foreign substances or drugs into an affected areas. Regenerative medicine is native and intrinsic, a harvesting and harnessing of regenerative cell populations from within to promote natural repair and restoration of skin, soft tissue, and musculoskeletal tissues. Regenerative medicine is a capability or technology that allows the body to tap into its bio-cellular reserve capabilities through the use of fat aspirate concentrate (FAC) and platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Regenerative medicine specialists assist their patients by harvesting and concentrating native bio-cellular agents then deploying those agents into degenerative areas using sophisticated, effective technologies and methods.
