Dr. Schwartz and Piedmont Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, PA (PPMR) have been featured in a PR Web news release on stem cell for the treatment of osteoarthritis of the knee. Dr. Schwartz and PPMR have a long history of experience in regenerative medicine. He was an early adapter for the use of Prolotherapy (injections that make use of natural compounds to grow ligament) in the 1980’s and then Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) where growth factors from your own blood are extracted, separated, and then grafted onto damaged tissue to create a more vigorous wound healing response in the early 2000’s. Both autologus (meaning derived from self) and placental derived stem cell treatments have been available at PPMR since 2010. In addition in 2015 PPMR introduced the Realief system of care for the reversal of the signs and symptoms of peripheral neuropathy. Dr. Schwartz is recognized as a leader in the field of regenerative medicine. Learn more about these options at piedmonpmr.com.
