The Regenerative Medicine Center at Southern California Orthopedic Institute is designed to provide our patients with comprehensive education about arthroscopic surgery and exceptional care through the combined knowledge, experience, and expertise of our specialty-trained doctors.
Welcome to our Regenerative Medicine Center
When tissue such as muscle, tendon, ligament or cartilage is injured the body attempts to try and heal the injury through its own repair mechanisms. However, in certain situations (especially in areas where there is lack of blood flow – such as inside and around joints) the body is unable to heal the injury adequately or even at all. This may lead to ongoing pain, weakness, disability, or swelling, catching or locking of a joint. In the world of regenerative medicine we attempt to augment the natural healing process to heal or even “grow back” the damaged tissue.
This may be beneficial for many orthopedic problems including:
- Arthritis of the knee, hip, shoulder or ankle
- Articular cartilage injuries and defects
- Meniscal tears and labral tears
- Tendinopathies and tendon tears (including the Rotator cuff, Patellar Tendon, Achilles tendon, Golfer’s elbow, Tennis elbow)
- Ligament injuries (AC sprains, UCL tears, MCL tears)
- Muscle injuries (strains and tears)
At SCOI we perform many surgical and nonsurgical procedures that are designed specifically to heal and “Regenerate” tissue. These include:
- Nonsurgical (minimally invasive procedures performed in the office by using a needle or probe)
- Stem cell treatment (Regenexx)
- Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment
- Tenex Health TX (FAST) Procedure
- Sonorex treatment
- Amniofix treatment
- Surgical (minimally invasive procedures performed arthroscopically in the operating room)
- Autologous Chondrocyte Implantation (ACI)
- Osteoarticular Transfer System (OATS)
- Microfracture surgery in possible combination with:
- Denovo Natural Tissue Graft
