Regenerative medicine at Center for Diagnostic Imaging (CDI) in Puget Sound enables the body to speed up its natural healing process with help from its own cells and growth factors. These non-surgical treatments help treat various degenerative conditions and orthopedic injuries, including tendon, ligament, joint, osteoarthritic conditions, soft tissue injuries and disc degeneration.
CDI offers two types of regenerative injection procedures; Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Bone Marrow Concentrate (BMC).
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Promotes healing through the use of the patient’s own plasma, which is rich in platelets containing growth factors that promote healing when injected directly into an injury site. When injected directly into an injury site, PRP stimulates the body’s natural healing response, which leads to more rapid, efficient and thorough restoration of the tissue to a healthy state. PRP acts like a fertilizer, to help the tissue heal with growth factors that attract the body’s own stem cells to the injury site. Watch this video to learn more.
Bone Marrow Concentrate (BMC)
Bone Marrow Concentrate (BMC) is like planting seeds, promoting healing using autologous stem cells derived from a patient’s own bone marrow. BMC has regenerative properties that can help the body heal itself by forming new tissue. This therapy can help generate new growth that was not there, providing the cells needed for tissue healing and supplying the growth factors that facilitate the healing process.
