When you suffer a sports injury, your body makes every effort to heal itself. This natural healing process is augmented at SAC Regenerative Orthopaedics, located in Sacramento, California. Dr. Alberto J. Panero offers biomechanical and regenerative approaches to promote long-term healing. The practice treats your symptoms, as well as delving into the root cause of the problem.
When you experience an injury to soft tissue, such as muscle, ligaments or cartilage, your body has its own repair system. But, this system can be compromised due to aging, blood flow restriction, or other issues. Your body then finds itself unable to heal, or the natural healing process is very slow. As a result, you experience persistent pain, swelling, weakness, or dysfunction in certain joints.
Regenerative medicine is a cutting-edge technique that capitalizes on your body’s natural healing systems and augments them to assist you in healing damaged tissue. Through techniques such as stem cell therapy and platelet rich plasma therapy, Dr. Panero helps your body repair, and sometimes regenerate, injured tissue.
Stem cells are the cells that your body uses to build tissue. When your body’s ability to produce these cells in an injured area lags or stops, regenerative orthopedics isolates stem cells from your own body — often from bone marrow or fat — and injects them into injured areas to create self-healing and natural tissue rebuilding.
Dr. Panero treats most musculoskeletal injuries. Some of his specialties include:

Regenerative orthopedics can provide you with long-term relief from joint pain. Often, you’ll recover faster and get back on the field or court — or into daily activities — sooner than you might with conventional medicine. You’ll experience improved total-body function, reduced pain, and stimulation of your own immune system for improved future healing potential.
More conventional therapies are often invasive and short lived. These include major surgery or prescription medications, which carry their own risks. Regenerative orthopedics is a noninvasive answer to joint pain.
