Avoid surgery and its risks and many complications
Regenerative Therapy is a minimally, invasive, non-surgical procedure, which gives patients an alternative to painful surgery and a lengthy recovery. The procedure is performed in an outpatient setting and only takes a 1-2 hours. No general anaesthesia is required, and most patients don’t need post-operative pain medication. Also, patients typically return to work within a day or two, and they resume physical activity much faster than after invasive surgery.
Minimal post-procedural recovery time
One of the most time-consuming factors of any injury is not always the treatment itself, but the recovery time. With Regenerative therapies, there is far less risk involved than surgery and recovery time is much shorter compared to surgery.
No use of general anaesthesia
Regenerative Therapy provides a safe, increasinglyeffective, non-surgical alternative to treating medical conditions using the body’s own natural ability to repair itself without the use of medication. The procedure does not require administration of general anaesthesia.
Same day procedure
After a comprehensive examination and review of your case, our Consultant establish a baseline for your pre-existing condition. Based on any previousx-ray or MRI scan reports and all other available medical information , the Consultant will decide which line of Regenerative Therapy is most suited to your case. In certain cases, it may be a combination of more than one treatment protocol. For some patients, however, the complete protocol is a series of injections in several treatment sessions.
Safe procedures with No risk of rejection and No communicable disease transmission
Since you undergo an autologous transplant with the cells that originated within your own body, hence there is no risk of cross-transmission of disease or infection. Also, there is no risk of rejection.
Like with any injection , there is a little risk of infection at the sample collection and the injection site. The procedure is carried out under strict sterile conditions to minimise any risk of infection.
