Restorative Medicine Q&A

What is restorative medicine?

Your body uses platelets, cells, and FDA-regulated exosomes to restore new tissues and heal damaged tissues. Restorative medicine specialists can harvest cells and turn them into an effective treatment.

After injecting or infusing restorative cells, the cells perform their natural roles, accelerating healing and alleviating your pain.

How do platelets contribute to restorative medicine?

Platelets release proteins called growth factors. There are many types of growth factors, and each one has a specific job, but as a group they:

  • Accelerate healing
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Recruit cells
  • Protect healthy tissues
  • Stimulate the growth of new blood vessels

Growth factors also create a grid that supports the new cells.

How do other cells contribute to restorative medicine?

Cells have the amazing ability to self replicate and create new cells continuously. These new cells then develop into every type of cell your body needs to rebuild tissues and repair wounds.

Many different cells live throughout your body. One type of cell is often used in this therapeutic medicine because it restores numerous tissues, including ligaments, cartilage, tendons, muscles, collagen, skin, and blood vessels.

What roles do exosomes have in restorative medicine?

Exosomes are tiny sacs that are released by different types of cells. Just like platelets and cells, exosomes can be isolated, extracted, and used as treatment.

These sacs contain numerous biochemicals that activate specific responses in other cells. They may stimulate tissue revitalization or boost an immune response. Exosomes also carry proteins that support metabolism, molecules that are essential for DNA, and antigens to fight cancer.

What conditions does restorative medicine treat?

Restorative medicine therapies treat a wide range of health conditions. Most sports injuries, degenerative diseases like arthritis, and inflammatory conditions such as bursitis and tendonitis can improve with restorative therapies.

While the practice primarily focuses on nonsurgical care, Dr. Amin is also a board-certified foot and ankle surgeon who performs procedures when necessary, using the most up-to-date technological innovations and strategies, including restorative medicine.
