As an in-demand regenerative medicine health center in San Diego, we are the go-to place for patients recovering from injuries in La Jolla, those struggling with disease such as osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis or living with pain. Allow us to ease you into the Rejuvenate Medical Group healing process and guide you toward recovery and overall health improvement.

How does regenerative medicine work?

Regenerative medicine injections are made up of the body’s naturally occuring cells and fluids that can kickstart the regeneration process of damaged or injured bone and soft tissues. The growth factors used in regenerative medicine also have promising potential to boost healthy tissue growth. Several procedures may be needed to achieve optimal results in patients who we estimate are suitable candidates for regenerative medicine.

Pain alleviation

When performed properly and at appropriate intervals, regenerative medicine procedures have the potential to bring about a dramatic reduction in pain levels, both in the case of acute and chronic pain.

Chronic condition management

We will monitor your response to regenerative medicine and keep track of your progress and improvement of your chronic condition. Regenerative medicine injections have proved to be especially effective for rheumatoid arthritis.

Ameliorate symptoms of disease

Regenerative medicine may help control symptoms and even repair damage caused by chronic conditions such as osteoarthritis, an increasingly common form of arthritis which affects over 30 million American adults.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are stem cells and what are they used for?

Mesenchymal stem cells, sourced from the Wharton’s jelly of the human umbilical cord, can take on the properties and behavior of surrounding cells. This means they can promote damaged tissue supplementation, regeneration and possible regrowth. 

Since these cells are obtained from live-born healthy donated tissues, there is no room for ethical concerns or risk of complications and adverse reactions. Other ingredients in regenerative medicine injections include cytokines, hyaluronic acid and similar substances naturally found in the human body.

How long does the effect of regenerative medicine typically last?

The effect of regenerative medicine injections could last for many years. How long it will take for the procedure to start to take effect depends on the nature and severity of your condition. Some patients need several procedures before they experience any changes.

Is regenerative medicine safe and FDA-approved?

The products used in regenerative medicine belong to the group of human cells, tissues, and cellular and tissue-based products or HCT/Ps which are in and of themselves FDA-regulated, cleared and determined safe to use.

Will my insurance cover regenerative medicine injections?

Insurance does not presently cover regenerative medicine injections since they have not been approved by the FDA for any specific use. As a result, they cannot be assigned billing codes by CMS. However, the FDA does allow the homologous use of regenerative medicine injections in non-insurance-based procedures.

Will I feel discomfort during the procedure?

The slight discomfort you may experience during your regenerative medicine procedure will not last longer than a few seconds. If you are highly sensitive to pain or need to receive the injection in a highly sensitive area, we will minimize the discomfort by applying a numbing cream to the injection site.
