How to Select the Right Physician For Your Regenerative Medicine Treatment

It’s never been a better time to explore the latest regenerative medicine techniques, especially if you’re living with chronic pain. But, not all providers of these innovative treatments are created equal. 

In this blog, the physicians at Valley Pain Centers have compiled a list of things you should know before deciding on what treatment to get or who should provide it.

Understand your treatment options

The first step to picking the right provider is making sure you understand your regenerative medicine treatment options. This term isn't a single procedure. Instead, it describes a collection of therapies designed to activate the natural healing processes in your body to replace damaged tissue with healthy tissue.

Our experienced providers offer several regenerative medicine procedures, including stem cell treatments and platelet-rich plasma therapy

Stem cell treatments

When you have stem cell therapy, we use either the iliac crest or cells from amniotic tissue. Then, we inject the concentrate into the area with pain to activate the healing process.”

Platelet-rich plasma therapy

We perform this regenerative medicine treatment using vital healing agents in your blood. After drawing a sample of your blood, we concentrate these powerful growth factors in a centrifuge before injecting them into your pain site to activate the healing process.

After diagnosing your condition, we can make recommendations on the best regenerative medicine therapy to promote healing and ease your symptoms. And, in some cases, we might recommend a combination of techniques to provide the best results.

Only work with a highly trained professional

After identifying the best treatment options, it’s crucial to look into your provider’s training and credentials. This training should include a strong knowledge of joints, tendons, and ligaments as well as hands-on experience in the latest, research-based regenerative therapies. Your provider should also have access to the right technology to prepare and deliver your injections.

At Valley Pain Centers, each of our board-certified physicians has postgraduate training in their specific areas of expertise and up to 25 years of experience. That means you can find the highest quality specialized care in:

Our team has also won the Top Doctors Award from Phoenix Magazine in both 2016 and 2019.

Make sure your treatment is part of a comprehensive care plan

Regenerative medicine techniques have the remarkable ability to heal even the most complex condition. But, in most cases, it should only be one aspect of your entire treatment strategy. 

When looking for a physician to perform your regenerative medicine treatment, ask questions about their whole-body approach to managing conditions. This will help you better understand the role your regenerative medicine treatment will play throughout the entire process, including physical therapy and follow-up care.
