Regenerative medicine is the emerging process of replacing (regenerating) human cells, tissues or organs in order to restore and establish normal function with just a small piece of your own skin tissue.
Regenerative medicine may become the most powerful tool to improve the human condition by finding ways to boost the body's innate ability to repair itself.
This new approach is revolutionizing health management, offering potential solutions for a myriad of diseases and conditions.
You now have the opportunity to save your skin cells at a cell bank. A cell bank is a facility that stores stem cells of a specific genome for the purpose of future use in a product or for medicinal needs.
Cells are taken from a small sample of the skin and are then reset to the beginning state of the cell production. These skin cells are processed into stem cells that are frozen and then are stored for future use to repair damaged organs, rebuild tissue, and fight disease.
Dr. Mike discusses what regenerative medicine is, what this means for the future of medicine and the type of human conditions which could be treatable.
