Reparative medicine is a type of regenerative medicine that renews and repairs diseased and damaged tissues using your own body’s natural healing mechanism. Regenerative medicine cooperates with your body to help supplement, cushion and provide support for pain and injuries.
Reparative medicine also has the potential to treat diseases such as neurological disorders, heart disease, or diabetes. This has opened the exciting field of cell-based therapies, otherwise known as reparative or regenerative medicine.

Peptide therapy can aid in patient recovery and regeneration by promoting tissue repair, collagen synthesis, and growth factor production. These peptides may accelerate wound healing, reduce inflammation, enhance cellular communication, and support the body's natural healing processes, ultimately facilitating faster recovery and tissue regeneration.

Lipogenic Fat Derived Components uses manipulated adipose (fat) tissue technology to harvest, concentrate, and transfer a patient’s own fat for repair, reconstruction, and replacement of injured or damaged tissue. These injections are the next generation of regenerative medicine for individuals suffering from spinal conditions, joint pain, arthritis, or rotator cuff tears, just to name a few. Traditionally, patients undergo surgery for these conditions, but these lipogenically-derived injections offer simple, minimally invasive alternatives with a faster recovery time through short, outpatient procedures with local anesthetic performed in less than an hour.
We harvest, concentrate, wash, rinse, and resize your own fat for this injection. The material is then injected precisely into areas of the body to help establish an environment conducive to tissue healing and repair.
We offer the best in class FDA cleared technology for patients that have tried conservative therapy with limited relief and are not ready for major invasive surgery. It may be also added as an adjunct to your surgical procedure to optimize recovery.
Another reliable option that is tried and tested for many years in orthopedics is iliac crest autograft, which uses bone marrow aspirate concentrate. It is a rich source of regenerative cells for bone formation and has other valuable regenerative properties. Less invasive and less complicated harvest methods have made bone-marrow cell harvest much easier for the patient and the surgeon. The cellular composition of autograft and concentrated nucleated cells from marrow aspirate are virtually equivalent. Transplanting these concentrated regenerative cells in a scaffold mimics autograft bone grafts. Studies have shown healing is compromised in the absence of cellular concentration, particularly with patients that have significant comorbidities. The BMAC system produces the highest cell yields available while concentrating the full complement of cells.
Exosomes are small lipid vesicles secreted by a variety of cells. They were originally assumed to provide cells with the means to dispose of unneeded proteins, nucleic acids, and lipids. However, exosomes are now known to play a role in intercellular communication. Exosomes are present in all tissues and can also be found in biological fluids. Science has shown that the cell-to cell communication is important in maintaining a healthy cellular terrain. Age, chronic disease, environmental factors and genetic disorders can interfere with how our cells communicate with other cells, thus disrupting the healing process. Exosomes play a key role in the regulation of these communication processes. The body is a powerful thing: constructed with the building blocks needed to help heal itself. But as the body ages, those regenerative abilities slow dramatically and we are left with the question: is there a way to supplement our body’s ability to heal itself? We believe so.
Our focus on repair and regenerative therapies include those that harness the power of stem cell factors, organelles and signal molecular components, without the use of the cells themselves. By providing regenerative cellular signals under the control of messenger and micro RNA, peptides and proteins as well as other vehicles, we believe it is possible to initiate healing and prevent processes that can benefit patients of any age.
