WORK HARD, PLAY HARD, AND LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE - WITHOUT SURGERY!
Regenerative medicine is the process of creating living, functional tissues to repair or replace tissue or organ function lost due to age, disease, damage, or congenital defects. This field holds the promise of regenerating damaged structures in the body by stimulating previously irreparable cells to heal themselves. Orthopedic Associates of Dutchess County is proud to have two of the finest board-certified, fellowship-trained physiatrists in the area to be able to offer you and the Hudson Valley this innovative treatment for managing your pain!

Types of Regenerative Medicine
Regenerative Cellular Therapies, or Concentrated Bone Marrow Aspirate, contains all of the healing and growth factors contained in PRP, with additional healing cells called pluripotent cells.
Bone marrow is the tissue that is found in the hollow spaces in the interior of our bones. It is known that significant sources of our body’s adult stem cells are contained within our bone marrow. It is also known that these have the potential of positively contributing to healing. Blood and tissue can be harvested from the several bones in the body, the most popular being the hip, tibia and calcaneus, in an outpatient setting via an aspiration device.
Similar to PRP, a centrifugation device is used to concentrate the platelets and growth factors, as well as the pluripotent (or stem) cells, creating an injectable product that is delivered directly to the site of injury, jump-starting the healing cascade.
Regenerative Cellular Therapies may be effectively used in the treatment of:
- Muscle Injuries
- Bicipital Tendonitis
- Ankle Sprain/Ligament Pain
- Painful Degenerative Tendon Conditions
- (i.e. Tendinopathies of the Hips, Rotator Cuff Tendons & Elbow)
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Elbow Pain
- Medial/Lateral Epicondylitis
- Ulnar Ligament Strains
- Chronic Neck and Low Back Pain
- Sacroiliac Pain
- Chronic Lateral Hip Pain
- Coccydynia or Tailbone Pain
- Osteitis Pubis
