What is Regenerative Medicine?

Regenerative Medicine is a form of tissue engineering and molecular biology which deals with the “process of replacing, engineering or regenerating human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function”. When injured or invaded by disease, our bodies have the innate response to heal and defend. Harnessing and enhancing the body’s own regenerative powers is a medical practice at the frontier of present-day advancements whose properties may seem miraculous to those who benefit from them. The miracle, however, is the result of scientific exploration that has begun to unlock and utilize the body’s extraordinary ability to heal and restore itself. 

Do You Only Offer Regenerative Medicine?

Tennessee Health and Wellness offers other types of treatment options other than regenerative treatments, namely hyaluronic acid, with which our team has years of experience in treating osteoarthritis pain in the knees and other joint areas. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance that is found in our own bodies and that is also found in joint tissue. This substance helps create the natural lubrication that is found in our joints and as we age, this lubrication as well as the surrounding cartilage can degenerate, causing joint pain. Hyaluronic acid treatments work to replace this lost lubrication and diminish joint pain, as well as reducing the stiffness and other symptoms associated with knee osteoarthritis.

What Conditions Does Your Office Treat?

The non-surgical joint pain solutions offered at Tennessee Health and Wellness can be used to treat a multitude of conditions including, but not limited to pain management, sports injuries, spinal conditions, podiatry, tendon tears, ligament injuries, cartilage damage, reducing inflammation, the list goes on and on. 

Regarding pain management, in our office, this refers to chronic joint pain. We offer a clinically-proven, highly affective solution for chronic knee pain in our office that is highly-effective at reducing if not eliminating chronic knee pain caused by osteoarthritis of the knee joints. 

Which Regenerative or Other Treatments Will Work Best For Me?

Based on your condition or injury your physician will customize a treatment plan for you and determine what therapy, or combination of therapies, will work best for you. 

Will The Procedure Be Painful?

In most cases, the therapy involves a simple procedure and is minimally invasive. Due to this, the procedure takes very little time and leads to minimal discomfort.

What Is My Recovery Time?

Most patients experience little, if any, recovery time from the procedures. You will be provided with pre and post-care instructions based on your specific condition and treatment. 

Are Your Treatments Covered By Insurance?

While most regenerative treatments are not covered by Medicare or insurance, our hyaluronic acid injection treatments are covered under Medicare Part B and other commercial insurances. We're happy to say that our full Non-Surgical Knee Pain Program is covered under Medicare Part B!

How Much Do Regenerative and Other Treatments Cost?

The cost for regenerative medicine therapy is based on the procedure and type of product needed. Our staff will sit down with you prior to your procedure and explain the cost as well as finance options if required.

Will I Require Multiple Visits?

Every condition and treatment is different. We take our patients through our advanced assessment so we can carefully determine the right treatment plan for you. Many patients are experiencing major relief from Regenerative Therapy after only ONE treatment! 

The Proof is in our Patients

"Dr. Kirby took the time to do an X Ray and evaluate the source of my neck pain, and explain what treatment was needed, and what to expect from it. My range of motion is now much better with a considerably less pain, and continues to improve. The office staff is friendly, professional , and efficient. "
