WHAT IS REGENERATIVE MEDICINE?
IT'S A BROAD AND MULTI-FACETED FIELD
Regenerative medicine continues to evolve and mature. Its focus reaches beyond its term ‘regeneration’ to include support and stimulation of the body’s pathways for healing and maintaining health. This occurs at the cellular, genetic and molecular level.
At Karli Center, we apply an integrative approach to advancing Regenerative Medicine: First and foremost – utilization of a patient’s own cells and proteins (autologous), which are collected, concentrated and re-implanted at the site of injury or disease. This is accomplished with two primary preparations: PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and BMC (Bone Marrow Concentrate) Karli Center's clinical and research work is focused on Orthopedic applications of these two preparations.
In addition to cellular therapies, we recognize and stress the importance of supplementary pathways such as supplementation, exercise, nutrition, hormone optimization and genomics, all of which are complementary to cell therapies and also fit into the broad category of Age Management.
About + q&a
PLATELET RICH PLASMA involves separation of whole blood into components which can be concentrated, most notably, into platelets and white blood cells. These components release proteins that initiate and coordinate the body’s healing and repair responses. Platelets in particular release high concentrations of growth factor proteins that are needed to activate the body’s repair mechanisms.
ABOUT + Q&A
Bone marrow concentrate (BMC) is similar to platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and involves the concentration of blood components from bone marrow, including many populations of cells such as stem cells. Platelets are also concentrated, which releases growth factors similar to PRP. The combination of growth factors and cells provides building blocks and stimulation for repair.
