Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is Regenerative Medicine?

Regenerative medicine uses your body’s own healing ability to address a variety of injuries and disease that limit mobility and cause chronic pain.

The experts at PRIMed, led by the double board-certified physicians at Commonwealth Pain & Spine, offer several regenerative treatments, including:

  • Human amniotic therapy
  • Alpha 2 Macroglobulin (A2M) injections
  • Bone marrow aspirated stem cells


Each treatment is customized to your needs, providing long-term relief from pain and mobility limits. Treatment can also reduce your dependence on pain medications and effectively address your issues when other therapies can’t.

What Conditions Can Be Treated With Regenerative Medicine?

Regenerative medicine can be an effective treatment to relieve pain associated with injuries and degenerative diseases. Your PRIMed physician can suggest regenerative therapies for:

  • Arthritis
  • Cartilage repair
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Neurodegenerative disease


Your PRIMed physician can determine if your existing condition would benefit from regenerative medicine therapies after a thorough physical exam and a review of your overall medical history.

What is Human Amniotic Therapy?

Human amniotic therapy uses pure amniotic fluid from healthy donors that are thoroughly prescreened for safety and acquired during full-term, live cesarean section births.

Amniotic fluid offers a variety of regenerative benefits, helping your body to repair itself by stimulating your cells to work more efficiently.

The PRIMed team also uses human amniotic membranes for surgical applications and treating open wounds. Treatment speeds up the healing process, regenerating healthy skin cells to ensure more efficient healing. You could benefit from donor membranes to optimize the healing of slow-healing wounds or to treat diabetic ulcers.

How Do A2M Injections Treat Injuries?

A2M is a molecule found naturally in your blood. It’s produced by your liver to remove enzymes related to tissue degeneration in the spinal discs and joints.

By injecting a high concentration of the molecule into damaged areas of the body, A2M can assist in removing destructive enzymes that lead to tissue degeneration.

How Do Bone Marrow Aspirated Stem Cells Work?

The PRIMed physicians extract regenerative stem cells from your bone marrow. These cells offer many healing benefits, stimulating the regeneration of new, healthy cells to replace those damaged by injury or disease.

Stem cells are also beneficial in cosmetic applications because of the anti-aging benefits these cells offer your skin.
