Regenerative Orthopedics, also known as Interventional Orthopedics, describe treatments where biological tissues and medications are used to treat injuries. For orthobiologic treatments, a subset of regenerative orthopedics, organic substances are injected into diseased areas of the body, helping to heal bones and injured muscles, tendons, and ligaments. These products are made from substances that are naturally found in the body such as platelet-rich plasma, amnion, chorion, bone matrix, and bone marrow.
Cellular therapy refers to the transplantation of certain cell lines, such as bone marrow concentrate (BMAC), into unhealthy tissues to promote healing. These stem cells are pluripotent, meaning that they can develop into any other type of cell, allowing them to help heal a variety of damaged tissues.
