The Regenerative Medicine Therapeutic Suites has seen 1,000 patients since opening on Mayo Clinic’s Florida campus almost two years ago. The model, which integrated patient care with laboratory functions, is enabling the development and use of regenerative medicine products.
The unique space serves both patients and clinicians, providing a place for multidisciplinary teams to expand current projects in order to deliver individualized regenerative therapies and procedures to patients.
The Regenerative Medicine Therapeutic Suites have prompted — and been used in — several research projects in the areas of orthopedics, dermatology, reconstructive surgery and gastroenterology. From the treatment of pressure wounds to stroke to Alzheimer’s disease and beyond, the suites ensure a seamless pathway to translate emerging regenerative treatments to patient care.
In the video below, Shane Shapiro, M.D., program director for the Regenerative Medicine Therapeutic Suites and assistant professor of orthopedic surgery discusses the results of his randomized controlled trial of bone marrow aspiration and concentration for knee osteoarthritis.
