What is Reparative Medicine?

When our soft tissues are injured, the body will try to heal these tissues through its own repair system. This can sometimes work, but there are many instances when the body is unable to heal itself and further treatment is needed. 

Reparative medicine, also know as orthobiologics, uses the body's own healthy cells, which are extracted concentrated, and then transplanted or reinjected into the diseased or damaged area. The reason the body's own healthly cells, whether blood cells, bone marrow aspirate or adipose tissue, are used is because they stimulate the natural healing and help relieve pain and restore function to the muscles or tissues, returning patients to their healthy, active lifestyles.
