Regenerative Medicine

Ellis Pain Center has helped numerous patients regain their life back through regenerative therapies.

Ellis Pain Center focuses on two breakthrough treatments that allow the body to heal from painful conditions naturally. The two treatments are platelet-rich plasma therapy and stem cell therapy.

Common conditions treated by regenerative therapies include:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Osteoarthritis of the knee, hip, and shoulder
  • Tennis and golfer’s elbow
  • Joint injuries
  • Ligament, cartilage, and tendon injuries

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

PRP utilizes platelets extracted from the patient’s own blood to rebuild damaged tendons or cartilage. Our certified physicians draw the necessary amount of blood from the patient and separate the needed platelets that will allow them to inject into the affected or injured site. This is usually done under image guidance using our ultrasound or fluoroscopy machines.

After the injection is complete, the damaged tissue begins to heal. Using the body's own platelets jump-starts the healing process to get you back to health.

Stem Cell Therapy

Stems cells are undifferentiated cells, which allow them to develop into another type of cell that is required to repair or replace damaged cells. Similar to Platelet-Rich Plasma, stem cell therapy utilizes the patient’s own cells or a purified amniotic source. Stems cells stimulate the formation of cartilage, tendons, ligaments, bone, and fibrous connective tissues.
