The use of regenerative medicine is an essential part of Winthrop's wound healing program. Our wound healing team has helped pioneer many of these treatments, and our expertise in their use is unsurpassed. The fact that every wound patient at Winthrop-University Hospital routinely receives regenerative medications and related therapies is one of the things that sets the Winthrop Wound Healing Center apart in treating chronic and complex wounds.
Our use of regenerative medications is based on our growing understanding of the biology of chronic wounds—including how biologic agents can be used to spur the formation of healthy cells, and neutralize the factors that prevent chronic woulds from healing. After debriding the “bad cells” from the wound, we administer regenerative medicine directly into the wound tissue to promote the growth of new, healthy tissue. Since every patient's wound has a unique biological profile, we also analyze tissue cultures taken from each patient’s wound to determine which combination of regenerative medications will be most effective.
The following regenerative therapies are all used at the Winthrop Wound Center. For more information, click on the links for each treatment:
