Nashville Regenerative Orthopedics’ advanced wound care provides life-changing treatment for wounds that do not heal.

Regenerative medicine has significantly impacted the field of wound healing by activating the body’s inherent ability to repair and regenerate. This is partially due to the accessibility and structure of the skin. Conventional medicine has always had ways and means to support wound healing, but as science advances, we have learned that there are some non-healing wounds resistant to traditional methods.

The wound healing process

Natures wound healing process consists of four phases:

  1. hemostatic,
  2. inflammatory,
  3. proliferative, and
  4. remodeling.

Along with our state-of-the-art regenerative wound care, our body’s different systems work together to repair and replace devitalized tissue in these phases.

Types of wounds

There are many wounds that can have trouble healing. Here are some common types. Of course, every case is unique, so it is important to come in and see Dr. Ethan Kellum for a consultation as soon as possible if you have a wound that is not healing.

Diabetic Foot Ulcers

Diabetic foot ulcers form as a result of skin tissue breaking down and exposing the layers underneath.


Post Mohs

Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) is a special technique that utilizes both pathology and surgery to remove skin cancer. Post-surgery there may be an open wound, a skin graft, or stitches requiring care.


Venus Leg Ulcers

Venous leg ulcers can occur when the veins in your legs do not push blood back up to your heart as well as they should. Blood backs up in the veins, building up pressure. Increased pressure and excess fluid in the affected area can cause an open sore to form.


Lacerations

Lacerations go through all the layers of the skin and into underlying tissue like muscle or bone. Lacerations of the extremities including legs, arms, feet, and hands may involve tendons, nerves, and arteries.


Surgical Dehiscence

Dehiscence is a common complication of surgical wounds, involving the breaking open of the surgical incision along the suture.


Pressure Ulcers

Pressure ulcers are injuries to skin and underlying tissue resulting from prolonged pressure on the skin.

How Regenexx Procedures Work

Regenexx-SD

Bone Marrow Concentrate

Regenexx-SD is Bone Marrow Concentrate, which contains stem cells. These repair cells from your own body live inside all of us in various tissues, poised to leap into action to repair damage as it occurs. As we age or have big injuries, we may not be able to recruit enough of these cells to the site to fully repair the area. The Regenexx-SD Procedure helps overcome this problem by harvesting Bone Marrow from an area of the back of the hip that contains a dense population of these important cells and then concentrating those cells before precisely injecting them into the injured area using advanced imaging guidance. The goal of the procedure is to reduce pain and improve function by promoting the body’s own ability to heal naturally. This Patented Bone Marrow Concentrate Protocol can be used for a wide range of orthopedic conditions. Your Regenexx doctor will evaluate your condition and your imaging to determine whether a bone marrow concentrate or platelet-based treatment is the best option for your orthopedic condition.

Regenexx SCP

Super Concentrated Platelet Rich Plasma & Platelet Lysate Procedures

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Platelet Lysate are Platelet procedures that contain healing growth factors from your own blood that promote your body’s natural ability to repair itself. The use of PRP to treat joint, tendon, ligament, and muscle injuries is becoming well known, thanks to exposure from professional athletes. Platelet injections have a stimulating effect on the repair cells within the targeted area, making those cells work harder to perform their natural job of healing the body. Like all Regenexx procedures, Regenexx SCP procedures are performed with high-level imaging guidance to ensure the most accurate placements of cells into the desired area. Our Advanced Platelet Procedures are more concentrated and purer than PRP created by the automated machines used at most regenerative medicine clinics, increasing its ability to stimulate the body’s natural healing response. Platelet procedures are commonly used for soft tissue injuries, mild arthritis, spine conditions, and around nerves.
