Dixon Center and Harpeth Valley Health have partnered with several companies and to bring you the latest in regenerative medicine. Combining our passion for a 100-year lifestyle, the latest technology, and our foundation of the musculoskeletal health care approach, we are now offering stem cell and regenerative medical therapy. Regenerative medicine optimizes the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
What is regenerative medicine?
Regenerative medicine is a cooperative type of health care. It is a way of working with the natural care continuum of our body. The regenerative medicine works in conjunction with the body’s natural environment, in the least invasive and disruptive way possible. Utilizing allografts promotes the repair response of dysfunctional, injured, and/or diseased tissues.
What is an allograft?
It is the transplant of an organ or tissue from one individual to another, of the same species, with a different genotype (two individuals that aren’t twins).
How does regenerative medicine work?
As we age and our health fluctuates and our body’s tissues also age. Our chemical composition changes overtime. We can lose functionality due to injury and disease, which often means longer recovery and healing time. The wonderful part of that equation is, although our bodies are subject to “wear and tear,” we are all born with an innate ability to heal. We naturally possess the building blocks that make our bodies capable of repairing, regenerating, and replenishing tissue.
“Regenerative medicine has the potential
to disrupt the way certain ailments are managed.”
