REGEN CARE by Dr Wikus Pretorius M.D. is a medical passion, come to life. Regenerative Medicine is undoubtedly the future of medicine, by enhancing the productivity of our own stem cell biology to repair our bodies WITHOUT SURGERY. We also focus on Advanced Wound Care and the latest in Aesthetic and NATURAL Anti-Ageing treatments.
Regenerative medicine is a form of treatment that uses the body’s natural cells and it's regenerative capabilities to heal damaged or painful muscles, tissues, ligaments, cartilage and bones.
Regen Care uses stem cell therapy or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections to help patients find relief from their chronic musculoskeletal pain, arthritis, ligament and muscle tears, or tissue inflammation.
Stem cells are the precursor cells found throughout our bodies from which mature or differentiated cells are derived. They are characterized by the ability to renew themselves or develop into more specialized cells and therefore have the potential to replace cells or tissues which has been damaged or destroyed due to disease processes.
Mesenchymal stem cells are multipotent stromal cells that can differentiate into a variety of cell types, including osteoblasts (bone cells), chondrocytes (cartilage cells), myocytes (muscle cells) and adipocytes (fat cells which give rise to marrow adipose tissue)
The mesenchymal stem cells are harvested from the bone marrow under a local anaesthetic procedure.
