Regenerative medicine is an evolving field that is fast becoming a popular treatment for chronic degenerative conditions. By aiding the body’s natural ability to heal itself, regenerative therapies may provide pain relief to those with chronic degenerative conditions without the risks associated with surgery and long term medications.
Beyond “STEM CELLS”
Regenerative therapy in clinical applications can often be advertised as “STEM CELL” therapy, but regenerative therapy is so much more than that. Cellular allografts/autografts can contain mesenchymal stem cells that may differentiate into different cells, but that is not all! Cellular and tissue grafts can also contain cellular and extracellular proteins, growth factors, and cytokines which all help stimulate the regenerative/repair processes in your body.
Always on the forefront of minimally invasive treatments of the spine, Dr. Peloza has been utilizing regenerative therapies for over a decade in clinical practice. He has been invited to speak on his experience at national and international peer meetings. Notably, Dr. Peloza was a Keynote Speaker at the national Israel Spine meeting in 2018.
