Many patients seek regenerative medicine after trying traditional medical approaches without success. These may include physical therapy, pain management through prescription medications, and in some cases, even surgery.
Regenerative therapy offers a range of benefits. By providing your body with what it needs to heal, Dr. Vogt and Dr. Hunnius can decrease your pain levels and increase functioning, including mobility.
That can lead to a faster recovery time, getting you back to your daily activities, whether that’s taking the dog for a walk or jumping hurdles on the track.
Depending on the extent of your injury and what procedure you have done, you may return to most of your normal activities within 72 hours of treatment. On average, most patients at the SMaRT Institute return to playing sports two weeks post-procedure.
Not all patients are candidates for regenerative medicine. To discuss your case, schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Vogt or Dr. Hunnius. They address your issues, treatments that may help, and the success rates of those procedures. After a thorough examination, they determine whether they can help you reach your desired outcomes.
If you have active cancer, an infection, or a history of lymphoma, regenerative therapy may not be suitable for you. If you have any of these conditions or you are on certain blood-thinning medications, the team at the SMaRT Institute may request to speak to your oncologist or cardiologist before proceeding with treatments.
