Regenerative Medicine uses your body’s natural healing ability to repair damage to bones, muscles, cartilage, tendons, and ligaments non-surgically. Regenerative Medicine & Rehabilitation of Hawaii uses proprietary, research-driven techniques that enables us to concentrate stem cells and to place them in the precise area of your injury to promote healing and to achieve optimal outcomes. We offer information on how to identify a qualified MD that specializes in treatments that utilizes therapies that involve stem cells.
RESUME THE THINGS YOU LOVE, FASTER WITHOUT SURGERY
Regenerative Medicine & Rehabilitation of Hawaii offers natural, nonsurgical and minimally invasive solutions to nurture tissues damaged by age, arthritis or injury. We specialize in image-guided injection therapies such as PRP (platelet rich plasma) and bone marrow concentrate (a fluid that contains stem cells). Instead of focusing on pain management, our goal is peak performance. We provide Regenexx platelet or cellular interventions based on your performance goals. Our treatments are office-based and require minimal downtime through accurate and thorough diagnosis.
Regenerative medicine is the branch of medicine that utilizes your body’s own therapeutic cells for tissue repair and recovery. Since its inception over 20 years ago, it is a rapidly-evolving field driven by positive patient outcomes and advances in medical research. The pandemic also fueled interest in biologics when elective surgeries ceased in Hawaii and patients wanted safer alternatives to cortisone shots. The body heals best when it heals itself.
ARE YOU A CANDIDATE FOR REGENERATIVE MEDICINE?
The ideal candidates for regenerative therapies are patients with mild to moderate degenerative arthritis or tendon damage. Those who are highly motivated to regain or maintain an active lifestyle are ideal.
Successful PRP or stem cell procedures depend upon multiple factors, including medical history, age and the severity of the condition. Some patients with a history of cancer, leukemia, lymphoma or autoimmune disease may not be candidates for regenerative cellular treatments.
During an initial consultation, Dr. Lin evaluates the overall prognosis (ie, will a PRP or stem cell treatment help) and explains treatment options. Thousands of patients are treated every year to restore of strength, range of motion and conditioning to end painful shoulders, knees, tendons, ligaments and lower back problems.
Regenerative medicine is not the same for every patient and we work collaboratively with surgeons, primary care doctors and physical therapists.
MINDSET OF MEDICINE
Modern medicine has evolved to offer holistic alternatives to surgeries and pain killers. We now know that vital tissue can be destroyed with medications such as steroid injections that numb pain but don’t address the cause of it. We also have learned that your own cells contain growth factors and cytokines that stimulate healing at a cellular level.
An emerging field of regenerative medicine has meant countless claims of “stem cell doctors.” Dr. Dwight Lin is part of a highly select and highly trained physicians who perform the most advanced and best-researched stem cell procedures in the U.S. and the world. The Regenexx network is the world’s most advanced, research-driven, regenerative-medicine treatments in North America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Australia.
