The practice of regenerative medicine encompasses a number of innovative treatments, all of which involve harnessing and building upon the body’s own tissue repair capabilities. This approach can be particularly beneficial for addressing sports injuries and musculoskeletal conditions that do not respond well to physical therapy and other traditional treatment methods. Dennis M. Lox, M.D., is an established leader in the development and implementation of regenerative medicine who brings groundbreaking treatments to active individuals across the nation and around the world.
Types of regenerative treatments
As an alternative to cortisone injections and surgery for treating osteoarthritis and other joint conditions, Dr. Lox offers the following regenerative treatments:
- Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy
- Growth factors
- Biologic scaffolds
- Other emerging biotechnologies
In addition to relieving pain and reducing inflammation, the goals of regenerative medicine are to promote the healing of damaged tissues, such as cartilage, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Many of Dr. Lox’s patients find that a regenerative treatment offers them a nonsurgical way to achieve effective relief, ultimately allowing them to resume their active lifestyle without facing the risks and downtime of surgery.
Based on his belief that well-informed individuals make the best treatment decisions, Dr. Lox emphasizes patient education. At his state-of-the-art clinics, he welcomes prospective patients who have questions about regenerative medicine, and he is committed to providing thorough and straightforward answers. With a strong commitment to the science of regenerative medicine driven by a desire to deliver the best possible medical care, Dr. Lox has earned respect from both his peers and patients.
