Regenerative injection treatments in the Los Angeles County, Orange County and San Diego, CA.

At The Patel Center for Functional Regeneration, Dr. Shounuck Patel utilizes a solution of concentrated dextrose and local anesthetic, which stimulates the tissue repair and encourages new connective tissue growth in the ligaments and tendons.

How Prolotherapy Treatment Works

Regenerative medicine is changing the way orthopedic injuries and chronic pain are treated. Prolotherapy is a category of treatments where damaged and deteriorated connective tissue is injected with a solution of dextrose in order to promote the body’s healing response. Prolotherapy results are derived from both mechanical and physiological mechanisms. Mechanically, ultrasound-guided needle injections cause additional micro-trauma to the area, which the body attempts to heal by releasing inflammatory cells at the injection site mimicking an injury response. Physiologically, the solution releases growth factors associated with wound healing.

Dr. Patel and all of his staff will definitely ease your pain and worries. Having Spinal Stenosis, knee problems as well as ankle problems they have made my life so much better. My last treatment was 2 years and 3 months ago. I just did a second treatment this week. Before that I was getting spinal epidurals every 3 months and living on ibuprofen and pain prescriptions. I haven't had that anymore. It's been 2 years and 3 months. He offers so much care and spends all the time in the world with you.

My meniscus was disintegrating. After my platelet treatment, is now whole. It is a constant source of wonder to me that sidewalk curbs which used to seem like climbing Mount Everest are no longer a challenge. Seven months out, I’m still experiencing small improvements in mobility that I didn’t even realize I had lost. An altogether life-affirming experience.

I am extremely thankful for everything Dr. Patel and his staff have done for my husband. Dr. Patel was very thorough during the evaluation and answered all of our questions very carefully. During my husband’s Spine PRP procedure, everyone made him feel very comfortable and everything went very smooth. My husband is now doing great. Thank you so much for everything!

I owe Dr. Patel my life. When I came to him I was in level 10 pain constantly, and had been bed ridden for several months. After 3 PRP treatments I am now a fully functioning human with zero pain throughout most of each day! I can even go back to activities like working out, dancing, and aerial arts! The diet and supplements he put me on even got rid of my migraines - something I've seen specialists for since I was 12!!! This man is brilliant, kind, funny, and extremely patient. He will sit with you and answer every little question you have and geek out with you on the science behind it. I literally trust him with my life.
