Stem cell therapy focuses on delivering the patient’s own stem cells to parts of the body that are in need. With platelet rich plasma, plasma concentrates seek to help the body continue the healing process and strengthen the weakened tissue.

Dr. Roy Schmidt and the staff of the Pain Specialist Center hosted a free seminar and question-and-answer session about regenerative medicine Tuesday, Nov. 11 at 6 p.m. Held at the clinic at 15 Stonebridge Blvd. in Jackson, the hour-long event allowed attendees to ask questions about stem cell therapy and platelet rich plasma therapy in a relaxed atmosphere. Guests also had the chance to talk to individuals who have received regenerative medicine treatments, which focus on helping patients relieve pain by supporting the healing process.

Stem cell therapy focuses on delivering the patient’s own stem cells to parts of the body that are in need. After adipose tissue (comprised of fat cells) is taken from the patient’s body, it is made into a stem cell concentrate. That concentrate is injected at the focal point of pain or area that needs healing. Schmidt, who is certified to administer stem cell therapy, was trained by Bioheart Chief Scientific Officer Kristin Comella. Comella has been recognized as a national leader in stem cell therapy.

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) or platelet concentrates have been studied extensively since the 1990s. While similar products previously used in medicine (fibrin glue) were very expensive, PRP provides a cost-effective alternative. Plasma concentrates seek to help the body continue the healing process and strengthen the weakened tissue. It is often used for tendon problems, in addition to issues with ligaments, muscles, meniscus, cartilage, bone, wound and intervertebral discs. The supplemental role of hyperbaric oxygen therapy will be discussed at the event, also.

A board certified anesthesiologist, Schmidt has practiced pain management in the Jackson area for two decades.
