What is Regenerative Medicine?
The practice of regenerative medicine is the attempt to restore the structure and function of damaged tissues and organs. Current practices seek to replace tissue or organs that have been damaged by disease, trauma, or congenital issues rather than focusing on primarily treating the symptoms. Tools used for these outcomes include tissue engineering, cellular therapies, medical devices, and artificial organs.
Our body has the natural ability to heal itself – a cut finger, broken bones, etc. Doctors and researchers are continually looking for ways to expand regenerative medicine and discover therapies that support the body in repairing, regenerating, and restoring itself with more complicated conditions.
