Regenerative medicine is a cellular-level therapy that aims to improve the function of damaged or diseased tissue or organs by introducing cells to replace damaged cells. Today, regenerative medicine is being used to treat medical conditions across a range of medical specialties, including orthopedics, rheumatology, cardiology, neurology, and immunology.
Because of their ability to differentiate into cells that carry out the roles needed in a variety of organs, these cells are an essential regenerative medicine tool. When regenerative cells are introduced into a damaged tissue or organ, they evolve to carry out the functions necessary, compensating for the damaged cells. As a minimally invasive process, regenerative medicine harnesses the natural capabilities of cells and the body’s own ability to heal, providing an opportunity to avoid invasive procedures. For patients with injuries or chronic diseases, regenerative medicine is a source of hope.
