Regenerative Medicine

Effective pain management means more than just taking prescription medication. Overcoming injury, chronic pain or disease requires a thorough examination of the condition at the heart of the issue, so that a comprehensive treatment plan can be made. With the cutting-edge therapies provided by regenerative medicine, patients can enjoy successful treatment that not only relieves their pain but also targets and repairs the source of their pain for long-term relief.

At All Star Pain Management and Regenerative Medicine, helping you enjoy a pain-free lifestyle is our specialty. With wide variety of advanced treatment options offered and compassionate care provided by board-certified pain relief experts, we can help you overcome your injury, symptoms of aging or chronic pain to once again live an active, independent, pain-free life. Dr. Zvezdomir Zamfirov (Dr. Zed), our founder, will personally oversee every aspect of your care with a friendly and perfectionistic approach that only the experts at All Star Pain Management and Regenerative Medicine can deliver.

Understanding Regenerative Medicine

Regenerative medicine focuses on cell-based therapies that can repair and regenerate diseased, injured or damaged tissue. By mobilizing the patient’s own healing resources, regenerative medicine can target the source of pain at a cellular level, offering more than just short-term pain relief and providing effective, long-lasting treatment. Chronic pain and joint disability affect millions of men and women throughout the US, increasing the need for regenerative medicine.

With the treatments offered at All Star Pain Management and Regenerative Medicine, we can treat a wide variety of common bone, joint or soft tissue conditions, including:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Torn ligaments
  • Bone breaks and fractures
  • Torn meniscus
  • Tendonitis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Sports injuries

We offer the latest cutting-edge and evidence-based treatments to our patients, including stem cell therapy, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy and alpha-2 macroglobulin (A2M) therapy. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Zed today to learn if any of our regenerative treatments are right for you.

Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cell therapy takes advantage of the “blank slate” nature of stem cells to repair dysfunctional, diseased or injured tissue with low risk. Stem cells can develop into specific types of cells depending on where they are placed in the body, including muscle, tendon, cartilage and ligament cells. By harvesting donor stem cells from bone marrow and injecting them at the source of our patients’ injury or disease, we can effectively repair or regenerate tissue for long-lasting pain relief.

During a stem cell therapy procedure at our practice, stem cells are harvested from the patient’s bone marrow located in the hip. Once obtained and processed, the stem cells are injected into the damaged tissue in a process that takes one hour or less and requires no general anesthesia. Because all materials used in the stem cell therapy procedure are sourced directly from the patient’s body, any risk is minimal and the potential for adverse side effects or allergic reactions is completely avoided. Most patients enjoy dramatic pain relief with results that last many years.

PRP Therapy

Platelet-rich plasma therapy has been used for over 20 years as a pain relief and regenerative treatment for common sports-injuries like golfer’s and tennis elbow. Like stem cell therapy, PRP therapy is an autologous treatment, meaning the materials used are obtained directly from the patient’s body. Rather than rely on stem cells, however, PRP uses the platelets and growth factors found in blood to provide a direct supply of growth factors and nutrients to the injury or source of pain.

During the PRP therapy procedure, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient’s arm. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge machine to separate the nutrient-dense plasma from the platelet-poor plasma and unneeded blood cells. The prepared PRP is injected into the injured tissue under local anesthesia to stimulate the body’s natural wound healing response and deliver a fresh source of growth and healing factors, which in turn attract stem cells to the injured area. Most patients enjoy the full benefits of the procedure in two to three weeks with little to no side effects and no risk of rejection or allergic reaction.

With PRP therapy, patients can delay or completely avoid the need for surgery by providing quick relief and healing that targets pain at its source. The treatment takes about 30 minutes and can be repeated as necessary for long-lasting results.

A2M Therapy

Alpha-2 macroglobulin therapy is an emerging regenerative treatment that has shown remarkable potential for treating osteoarthritis. A2M is known to slow down or prevent cartilage breakdown while also inhibiting the progression of arthritis. Like PRP, A2M is naturally found in blood and can be sourced directly from the patient at the beginning of the procedure. Once the blood has been processed and the A2M has been separated, it can be injected into the soft tissue to manage arthritis and create healthier joints.

A2M injections are relatively new and have shown success for many patients, with clinical trials approved by the FDA. Rather than simply lubricate the joint or prevent inflammation like other popular treatment methods do, A2M therapy focuses on protecting and regenerating cartilage for sustained results. At All Star Pain Management and Regenerative Medicine, Dr. Zed is proud to offer this promising arthritis treatment to his patients interested in the latest cutting-edge regenerative therapies.
