Regenerative Medicine – Asheville, NC

Get Active and
Free From Pain

Regenerative medicine refers to the use of the body’s own innate healing mechanisms to help a patient recover from injury and pain. It’s designed to boost someone’s own natural healing response and direct it to a specific area of the body. This can be accomplished using a few different techniques for regenerative medicine in our Asheville, NC, all of which can be completed right here in an hour or two. Dr. Pinkston can help determine which approach is best for you based on your situation.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Seperated blood and plasma before platelet rich plasma orthobiologic medicine treatment

A small sample of your blood is taken and it’s placed in a centrifuge and spun until it separates into distinctive layers. The PRP layer is rich in not only platelets, but other healing proteins and growth factors. Created right in our office, this substance can be injected wherever a patient needs.

Prolotherapy

Patient receiving prolotherapy

Dr. Pinkston injects a solution that is a mixture of lidocaine and dextrose—the lidocaine numbs the area, and the dextrose irritates the soft tissues without harming them. This tells the body that something needs to be addressed in the area, which intentionally produces a temporary inflammatory cascade right where the injection is located, with the goal of speeding up the normal recovery processes.

Prolozone®

Prolozone® involves the use of ozone, a gas, in place of or in addition to lidocaine and dextrose. Ozone can also initiate a small, controlled inflammatory process that sends a signal to the body to recruit cells that assist with healing. The ozone (O3) is believed to then dissociate to oxygen (O2) and serve to decrease oxidative stress in the area, which is often a source of pain and may impair the effectiveness of the body’s natural healing response. Prolozone® is used as a standalone treatment or to prepare the cellular environment prior to other regenerative procedures.

Biologic Cell Therapy

Mesenchymal stem cell containing tissue can be harvested from various sites of a patient’s body. Dr. Pinkston obtains these samples from a patient’s own adipose, or fatty, tissue and bone marrow. These biomaterials are then injected under ultrasound guidance into an identified defect. We are proud to offer these treatments for the management of our patients.
