Reparative or regenerative medicine treatments using biologic agents, including autologous platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and/or others, are used to promote the repair of degenerative or damaged cells & tissue by harnessing the natural healing ability of growth factors, cytokines, and regenerative cell populations. The mission at HOGUE CLINICS is to promote natural healing using safe biologic agents to promote the natural cure and treatment of degenerative skin, soft tissue, and musculoskeletal tissues, to relieve pain, and to improve the functionality, anti-aging, vitality, and quality of patients’ 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 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 programmed to differentiate into the complex cells & tissues of our body, each working together (paracrine effect) to create a healthy, fully functioning human being with complex motor function, special senses, reproductive capacity, intelligence and so much more.
Our Role as Catalysts
At HOGUE CLINICS, 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 can not accurately predict the regenerative response or result following a regenerative medicine treatment with biologic agents. This is because each individual possesses a unique set of capabilities and limitations and every individual is unique.
Renewal, Not the Status Quo
If we as individuals were all the same, races would not be run in Track & Field competitions to determine who is the fastest. With time passage for each adult individual, a slowdown and gradual decay of his or her generative and regenerative capabilities will occur. These changes have always been associated with “aging”. Regenerative medicine and anti-aging treatments serve to restore and replete those capabilities when they manifest as pain, degeneration, injury, functional impairment, aging, and loss of vitality. By deploying biologic agents into depleted, degenerative areas using platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and/or others, the practice of “Regenerative Medicine” at HOGUE CLINICS is performed. Regenerative medicine seeks renewal, not the status quo. Regenerative medicine is a capability or technology that allows the body to tap into its regenerative and reserve capabilities through the use of biologic agents. Regenerative medicine specialist, Dr. Roger Hogue, assists his patients at HOGUE CLINICS by deploying biologic agents into degenerative areas using safe, sophisticated, effective technologies and methods.
