Regenerative Medicine

Beckley Area Medical Clinic’s regenerative medicine department offers the most advanced and beneficial treatments to replace the tissues or organs in your body that have been damaged by congenital issues, disease, or trauma.

If you're looking for alternatives to surgery, look no further! Regenerative therapy is a natural solution that utilizes your body’s own healing process to repair damaged tissue while also bridging the gap between non-operative treatments (such as physical therapy and spinal injections) and surgical procedures. Our pain specialist has pioneered regenerative therapy as a breakthrough treatment option for spinal conditions without having to undergo surgery. Additionally, our team performs regenerative therapy to heal a myriad of other joint structures including shoulder, knee, ankle, and hip.

What is Regenerative Therapy?

Simply put, it’s the process of creating living and functional tissues to repair or replace tissue that is lost due to age, disease, or damage. The key goal in using regenerative medicine is to aid in healing the damaged condition and to fix the root cause of your pain. For individuals who are not interested in pursuing surgical intervention but are looking for a solution to their pain, regenerative therapy could be the answer to rejuvenate the damaged tissue.

4 Regenerative Therapy Options:

Stem cells can differentiate into bone, cartilage, or fat cells to stimulate healing in the body. Notably, we are the only practice in the state of West Virginia to use stem cells to heal discs in the spine.


PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP) External link opens in new tab or windowPlatelet-rich plasma

Platelet-rich plasma promotes tissue repair and accelerates healing by injecting a concentration of platelets into the damaged area. PRP is a permanent solution that does not wear off over time.
