Regenerative medicine is a powerful, new approach that harnesses the body’s ability to heal damaged tissue, offering new solutions to people with joint, tendon, and soft tissue injuries.
Our physicians are active in providing clinical care to patients who may benefit from this method. After diagnosing the damaged area, our physicians deliver specialized cells and growth factors to the site to promote cell and tissue repair. The treatment may also include injections of platelet-rich plasma as well as tissue obtained from amniotic membranes.
Physicians at Weill Cornell Medicine use this cutting-edge approach to treat a broad range of adults — from athletes of all levels to those with degenerative joints — as part a comprehensive care pain tailored to each patient.
