When our body becomes injured it has the innate ability to repair and defend. What if it was possible to harness the bodies ability to heal and then accelerate it in a clinically relevant way? What if we could help the body heal quicker and better?
The promising field of Regenerative Medicine is working to restore structure and function of damaged tissues and organs. It is also working to create solutions for organs that become permanently damaged. The goal of this medicine is to find a way to cure previously untreatable injuries and diseases.

The procedure may cause localized soreness and discomfort for 3-4 days because of the ph difference. A patient may use Ice for heat to relieve some of the soreness.
