There are many types of regenerative medicine, and the field is continually expanding as new research becomes available. Currently, mesenchymal stem cells are the most promising and well-known type of regenerative medicine.
Mesenchymal stem cells are unspecialized cells in your body that eventually develop into specific cell types. Before they specialize, you can introduce them to areas of tissue damage that they can help repair. The cells for these treatments usually come from bone marrow or fat.
During your treatment, your provider implants mesenchymal stem cells into your body near your damaged or diseased tissue after manipulating them to become the type of cell you need.
