Regenerative Medicine in Chandler Area
Arizona Desert Medical is a general family practice that focuses on Regenerative Medicine procedures. Regenerative Medicine is taking over health care in the Valley and across the country. There are two simple but powerful reasons for this. The first reason is because it works! The second reason is because patients are looking for a solution that can not only get rid of their pain, but also correct the problem at its core and not just mask the symptoms.
Patients are tired of taking medications that create unwanted side effects and they do not want to get surgery that often does not work. At Arizona Desert Medical we are not against medications and surgery. There is a time and a place and we are grateful for these life saving medical treatments. However, we would rather use medications and surgery as a last resort after doing all we can do to avoid them while treating our patients root issues.
The best way to treat chronic aches and pains is first through lifestyle choices like diet and exercise. When diet and exercise and other lifestyle choices just aren't enough, we should turn to natural alternatives. This way of thinking is the correct way to handle most aches and pains that come from injuries, arthritis and other age related health concerns.

What is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative Medicine are medical procedures and therapies that are designed to increase the body's ability to replace unhealthy, inflamed or damaged tissue with new healthy tissue. This is completed using natural products that the body already utilizes to heal itself.
Most Common Types of Regenerative Medicine
When Regenerative Medicine is mentioned most people think of stem cell therapy, and for good reason. Stem Cells are the highest and most effective treatment on the market when it comes to all regenerative medicine procedures.
Stem Cells are the types of cells in your body that have the ability to transform into all types of tissue. What that means is when you get hurt or damage any cell in your body, a stem cell can replace and help heal that damaged tissue. We all have stem cells in our bodies. The problem is we have less and less the older we get. That is why we do not heal and recover at age 50 or 60 the same way we healed as teenagers or even younger. The good news is the technology to harvest stem cells from the placenta or umbilical cords of mothers after a cesarean birth gives us all an opportunity to increase the body's ability to heal like we did when we were younger!

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP is a popular Regenerative Medical procedure that uses the healing properties of your own blood. Your blood is drawn, spun in a centrifuge at a very high rate to separate the blood cells from the plasma that contain all the building blocks your body needs to repair inflamed or damaged tissue. This therapy dramatically reduces inflammation, increases the healing time and reduces pain levels. This therapy is best done in a series of treatments. The providers at Arizona Desert Medical will work with you to develop a treatment plan for your specific condition.
Hyaluronic Acid Therapy
Hyaluronic acid is what lubricates your body's large joints, like your knees, hips and shoulders. As we age, or if we damage these joints, the amount of fluid decreases in these joints which causes pain, swelling, inflammation and drastically speeds up the arthritis process of these joints. By injecting hyaluronic acid directly into these joints we are adding what the body already uses, thus helping to lubricate and remove the unwanted effects of decreased hyaluronic acid. This therapy is best done in a series of treatments. The great providers at Arizona Desert Medical can help you determine how many treatments are recommended for your specific condition.
Natural Anti-Inflammatory Injections
Natural anti-inflammatory injections are for joints and trigger points that are causing pain. The types of medications that would fall into this category are mainly Serapin and Traumeel.
Serapin is a medication that has been used for decades that comes from a plant. It has no side effects and works by reducing inflammation, increasing blood flow and relaxing muscles.
Traumeel is a natural homeopathic remedy that comes from Europe. It, like Serapin, does not have side effects but is great at reducing inflammation by increasing blood flow, while at the same time allowing the muscles around the area to relax.
These two therapies (Serapin and Traumeel) should not be compared to steroids like Cortisone injections. Cortisone can damage the joints further by causing the body to stop producing cartilage. Traumeel and Serapin, because they are natural, work with the body but need to be part of a series for best results. At Arizona Desert Medical we have found 1-2 injections a week for several weeks is the best course of action for most patients. The amazing providers at Arizona Desert Medical can evaluate your condition to determine how many treatments are recommended for your condition.
Regenerative Medicine can provide you a chance to be pain free once again. If you'd like to learn more about our procedures offered by Arizona Desert Medical, don't hesitate to call us at (480) 690-1126. We are a leader in regenerative medicine in Chandler and the surrounding Arizona communities.
What are the Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem cell therapy is a rapidly growing component of regenerative therapy, also known as restorative therapy. While many people have heard the term in the media, this clinical service that can help with many different ailments remains a mystery to most. Let's try and open up the conversation a bit, shall we?
What is a Stem Cell?
Before understanding what stem cell therapy is, it would help to know what a stem cell itself is. In short, stem cells are cells in your body that can transform into all types of tissues within your body, including those of organs and skin. According to the Mayo Clinic, "Stem cells are the body's raw materials - cells from which all other cells with specialized functions are generated. Under the right conditions in the body or a laboratory, stem cells divide to form more cells called daughter cells. These daughter cells either become new stem cells (self-renewal) or become specialized cells (differentiation) with a more specific function, such as blood cells, brain cells, heart muscle cells or bone cells. No other cell in the body has the natural ability to generate new cell types."
How does Stem Cell Therapy Work?
In short, stem cell therapy works by growing stem cells in a lab and manipulating them to specialize into a certain type of cell. The specialized cells are then implanted into a person to regenerate new tissue in place of damaged tissue.
What are the Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy?
- No Surgery - Perhaps the biggest benefit of stem cell therapy is that it is not invasive. This means no risky surgery!
- Fast Recovery Time - Recovery from surgeries can take weeks. The recovery time with stem cell therapy is minimal because healing is focused on the damaged tissue, not additional surgical incisions.
- No Rejection - Some types of therapies come with a risk of rejection, but not with stem cells, as they are often extracted from the patient.
Stem cell therapy is a growing field that has the potential to treat all types of diseases, including joint pain.
