IPMC Regenerative Health

logo IPMC 8.1.png “Regenerative Medicine” is a spectrum of therapeutic techniques using  and enhancing your body's ability to heal injuries. Interventional Pain Management Center is pleased to offer the most commonly used nonsurgical treatment options to help relieve pain.

Depending on your condition, health and age you may be a candidate for one or more of these therapies to relieve pain and promote healing of many muscle, tendon, ligament and joint conditions.

Why IPMC Regenerative Health for your treatment?

Not all regenerative injections are the same:

PRP and Stem Cell preparations result in only small amounts of concentrated solution. Highest quality of the sample and on-spot accuracy of the injection are the key for a successful regenerative treatment.


We are using the innovative technology of EmCYTE ™ Corporation which allows us to obtain some of the highest concentration of PRP and stem cells in the industry.


Our physicians are members of the American Association of Orthopedic Medicine, a society that has been investigating regenerative procedures for over 50 years. Our board and subspecialty certified (CAQ) Interventional Radiologists have extensive experience in image guided procedures, targeting up to only mm-sized structures in the human body using imaging modalities like Ultrasound or X-ray Fluoroscopy.

The Injection Procedure

Prolotherapy, Platelet Rich Plasma and Stem Cell Therapy are performed in our facility. The procedures are office based and could take up to an hour. Patients return home the same day and are often able to work the following day.


Injuries and conditions commonly treated by regenerative medicine therapies include:

  • Neck Pain
  • Lower Back Pain
  • Joint Injuries: Golfer's Elbow, Tennis Elbow
  • Osteoarthritis of the Knee, Hip & Shoulder
  • Other Ligament, Cartilage & Tendon Injuries


Prolotherapy is a procedure where a natural irritant (dextrose solution) is injected into ligaments or an injured joint to stimulate healing. The irritants kick-start the body’s healing response. Once activated, the body will begin to strengthen and repair damaged ligaments in the joint. Strengthening of the ligaments helps to stabilize the joint, giving more support and reducing the pain.

Stem Cell Therapy

Stem Cells are non-specialized precursor, or “reserve”, cells that are dormant in many parts of your body. Highest concentrations occur in adipose tissue and bone marrow. When stimulated by injury, these cells stimulate tissue cells for repair or replacement. In that manner, Stem Cells can stimulate the formation of cartilage, tendon, ligament, bone and fibrous connective tissue. The idea of Stem Cell Therapy is to stimulate repair in areas where the tissue is too damaged to heal on its own by increasing the amount of Stem Cells right at the injury site. Stem Cells are mostly obtained from your own tissue (bone marrow and/or adipose tissue), depending on the damage and the intended repair. The Stem Cells are then concentrated from the tissue samples and re-injected into the damaged tissue, tendon or joint to promote healing.

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy utilizes platelets taken from your blood to rebuild damaged tendons or cartilage. Platelets circulate within the blood stream. In an injury, platelets are responsible for blood clotting followed by initiating a tissue healing response. Many acute injuries do not heal adequately and can lead to chronic pain and loss of function of the injured area.

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy allows us to harvest your own platelets with tissue healing factors and re-inject a concentrate of those platelets at the site of the injury, promoting healing and improvement of function. To maximize precision targeting in the application of the PRP, the procedure is typically performed under image guidance such as ultrasound and/or fluoroscopy.
