Welcome to our Featured Physician series! We’re excited to showcase our newest Regeneris Physician Affiliates and tell you about their practices, why they became interested in regenerative medicine, and technologies they’re excited about.
Today we’d like to introduce you to Dr. Rosa Navarro, a Pain Management Specialist from California.
1. Can you tell us details about you/your practice?
Our practice is located in the southern part of San Diego in the city of Chula Vista. We proudly cater to the Hispanic community and all of our staff is bilingual English-Spanish which facilitates communication and or medical education to our patients.
Currently in our practice we offer a list of advanced minimally invasive interventional procedures such as, epidural steroid injections, joint injections with ultrasound, medial branch blocks, facet joint injections, sacroiliac joint injections, spinal cord stimulation, stellate ganglion blocks, ketamine infusions, nerve root injections, trigger point injections, lumbar sympathetic blocks, radiofrequency ablation, and our newest addition regenerative medicine.
2. Why did you get involved in regenerative medicine?
Regenerative medicine is a new treatment modality that we are excited to introduce to our patients as an alternative choice for Pain Management. Regenerative medicine’s promise is in its ability to work with the body’s reparative mechanisms, thus healing the local tissues and halting the propagation pain. It is effective and proven to demonstrate faster pain control and healing, making it a logical add-on therapy to our current list of services.
3. What are some of the most exciting technologies within this field?
The technologies that are exciting in this field are the usage of PRP (Protein Rich Plasma) from patients’ own body, combined with stem cells from fat and bone and incorporating them back into their body and seeing the effectiveness in the process of centrifuging and delivery methods.
