Biocellular treatments using bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC), fat aspirate concentrate (FAC), and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) are used to promote the repair of degenerative or damaged tissue by harnessing the natural healing ability of a vast array of regenerative cell populations. The mission at Minnesota Regenerative Medicine is to promote natural healing using autologous biocellular agents to promote the natural cure and treatment of degenerative skin, soft tissue, and musculoskeletal tissues, to relieve pain, and to improve the functionality and quality of patient’s lives.
The Complexity of the First Stem Cell
Mankind in all of its wisdom, ingenuity and experience still cannot create a human cell or synthesize something so marvelous as a single fertilized egg destined to become so much more. Ponder the marvel of our mother’s fertilized egg dividing and differentiating to create human form and function. A single cell becoming trillions of cells, each cell perfectly programmed to differentiate into the complex tissues of our body, each working together to create a healthy, fully functioning human being with motor function, special senses, reproductive capacity, and much more.
Our Role as Catalysts
At Minnesota Regenerative Medicine, while we are physicians and surgical specialists, we are mindful and respectful of our role as “mere catalysts” when performing regenerative medicine treatments. We realize that we cannot accurately predict the individual generative and regenerative capability of any of our patients. For each individual possesses a unique set of capabilities and limitations. We do know that there are surplus regenerative cell populations mingled throughout the tissues of the body, especially within bone marrow, fat tissue, and whole blood.
Renewal, Not the Status Quo
If we were all the same, races would not be run to find who is the fastest. As time passes on in adult life, each human being experiences a slow decaying of his or her generative and regenerative capabilities. Regenerative medicine serves to restore and replete those capabilities when they manifest as pain, degeneration, injury, and functional impairment. By removing and reshuffling biocellular agents from surplus areas (bone marrow, fat tissue, and whole blood), then deploying and replacing them into depleted, degenerative areas using bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC), fat aspirate concentrate (FAC), and platelet-rich plasma (PRP), the practice of “Regenerative Medicine” is performed. Regenerative medicine seeks renewal, not the status quo. Regenerative medicine is not about exogenous treatment with a foreign substance or drug or artificial body part. Regenerative medicine is about endogenous treatment from within, harnessing the natural healing cellular populations to promote natural repair and restoration of skin, soft tissue, and musculoskeletal tissues, by allowing the body to tap into its biocellular reserve capabilities through the use of bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC), fat aspirate concentrate (FAC), and platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
