Regenerative medicine, also commonly referred to as orthobiologics, is the use of natural cells, tissue, blood components, and growth factors that are harnessed to aid in the treatment of orthopedic injuries or conditions. Regenerative medicine treatments repair lost tissue, enhance healing, stimulate regeneration and reduce pain and inflammation.
