What is Regenerative Medicine?

Regenerative medicine is a scientific and medical discipline which focuses on reining the power of one’s own cells and the regenerative capacity of the body in order to restore the functioning of damaged cells, tissues and organs. The goal of regenerative medicine is to find the path to cure previously untreated injuries and diseases. Years of research have revealed a revolutionary new treatment approach that significantly enhances your body’s ability to heal itself naturally, known as regenerative cell therapy. Dr. Shounuck Patel, DO uses regenerative medicine treatments to help his patients in Los Angeles, Orange County and beyond address their pain and limited mobility caused by joint-related injuries in the knee, hip, and shoulder and spine.

Why Choose Regenerative Medicine Treatment?

Regenerative medicine-based therapy is increasingly being recommended in the management of various orthopedic conditions due to its diverse benefits listed below.

  • It uses natural components of your body tissues which reduces the risk of adverse reactions and complications.

  • In addition to aiding in the healing and regenerating of one’s tissues, it also provides pain relief.

  • Certain degenerative conditions and injuries which were previously only treated by surgery may now show significant improvement with regenerative medicine. In combination with surgery, it also is proven to enhance healing and recovery

What is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)?

PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma. Platelets are fragments of cells that are what cause blood clots to form when we get a cut or injury. Platelets contain growth factors that facilitate cellular growth, proliferation, healing and differentiation. Platelet growth factors actually cause inflammation, which is the first stage of healing, and in doing so call local cells to the area (because we have cells throughout our body). Over time, platelet growth factors then decrease inflammation. Thus, platelets are important for regulating the healing process, and PRP is a high concentration of these blood platelets. 

Basic PRP in most clinics is created by spinning your own blood in a centrifuge kit that spits out a standard concentration of platelets which varies from machine to machine.  We use manual processing in our lab, not a bedside centrifuge, so even our most basic PRP is actually customizable for your specific condition.

Putting it all together.

What is Interventional Orthopedics?

The primary tool of Interventional Orthopedics is using the science of Regenerative Medicine to inject orthobiologics such as blood platelets, bone marrow cells, and adipose fat graft. Regenerative orthopedics is a subspecialty of regenerative medicine that focuses on regeneration of lost tissue, acceleration of healing, and pain relief to treat orthopedic conditions such as osteoarthritis, tendonitis, lower back pain, joint injuries, ligament injuries, sprains and strains. Regenerative orthopedics also uses cells, platelets and growth factors.

Some of the conditions that can be treated with regenerative orthopedics include many common conditions such as arthritis, lower back pain, strains, sprains, nerve injuries, and tendon and ACL ligament tears. Regenerative orthopedics may be used to avoid surgery and accelerate healing from an injury.


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.

My experience with Dr. Patel and their staff was like no other I’ve had in a very long time. Everyone is very kind and attentive as well as helpful. One of the best things for me is how thorough Dr Patel is when he examines you. Takes his times with you and asks you a lot of questions in order to get to the root of the issue which most times is more complex than we think. I’m extremely happy and thankful i was able to find them. As i already received two treatments and doing physical therapy I’ve improved a lot from the pain I was in. I have recommended Dr. Patel to many of my friends and colleagues and i would recommend to anyone. I’ve slowly made my way back to dancing which is my profession and I’m hoping to be back %100 very soon. Thank you Dr. Patel and staff 🙂
