At MSK GUIDE, we partner with some of the top physicians in Arizona to provide guided ultrasound diagnostics as part of the regenerative medicine injection process. Starting with our clear view under the skin’s surface, we can pinpoint the exact source of pain, typically a severe strain in the joint or tear in the muscle. Using our ultrasound to visualize that pain source, we then provide the guided injection for the partnering physician, so they know exactly where to inject the regenerative medicine for the best possible results.
Regenerative medicine is defined as the process of replacing or "regenerating" human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function. Regenerative medicine and therapy involves the process of identifying the damaged tissues and organs in the body, then either replacing the damaged tissue or by stimulating the body's own repair mechanisms to heal tissues or organs.
Common injuries we treat using regenerative medicine with our physician partners include:
- Shoulder joint degeneration
- Rotator cuff tears
- Labral tears
- Biceps tendonitis
- Arthritis in the knee, hip wrist or hand
- Trochanteric bursitis
- Hamstring tears and tendinosis
- Meniscal tears
- Ligament tears
- Patellar degeneration
- Runner’s knee
- Plantar fasciitis
- Elbow pain, epicondylar bursitis or tennis elbow
Amniotic Tissue Injection
One of the key “ingredients” in regenerative medicine is amniotic fluid. Amniotic fluid, with us since birth, is comprised of high concentrations of collagen substrates, cellular components, growth factors, amino acids, carbohydrates, and cytokines. All of these elements are known to facilitate movement of new cells to the site of injury and help accelerate healing of damaged tissue.
An amniotic fluid allograft is injected into your tissue, joint, or spinal area of concern it begins to work immediately. It’s complex make-up of healing components start to work together to aid in the healing and repair of the targeted site. It is known to contain key growth factors that can stimulate the repair of injured tissue.
Amniotic tissue injections should be considered for back or joint pain, cartilage defects, sports injuries such as tennis elbow or golfers elbow, and the pain of osteoarthritis. It is particularly useful in patients whose joint FAC test is negative.
MSK GUIDE has a long history of partnering with physicians across the medical community to deliver regenerative medicine treatments, with resounding success. We proudly partner with such noted names in medicine as Dr. Deepash Shah of Arrowhead/Redirect Health (named a Phoenix 'Top Doc' in 2019) and Dr. Raj Singh of the Barrow Neurological Institute.
