At New Jersey Regenerative Institute, we specialize in nonsurgical regenerative medicine options for orthopedic conditions and injuries. Our physicians, Drs. Bowen, Malanga, and Agesen, are board certified and each have over 20 years of experience in patient care.
Our physicians regularly participate in research studies on the use of regenerative medicine for orthopedic conditions and injuries. Dr. Bowen and Dr. Malanga are also among the founders of DataBiologics, a company that collects data on regenerative medicine and minimally invasive procedures to determine the safety and efficacy of these procedures for orthopedic conditions. This research-focused approach allows our doctors to make evidence-based recommendations.
Our doctors are also focused on providing comprehensive, hands-on care. We always begin with a thorough examination and patient history before making any recommendations, and also recommend lifestyle modifications whenever possible to enhance the benefits of treatment or minimize the need for additional procedures.
We specialize in the treatment of the following conditions.
Arthritis is a common cause of knee pain and disability that can interfere with your everyday life. In addition to chronic knee pain, this condition can cause swelling and stiffness in the joint. Lifestyle modifications, along with physical therapy and regenerative medicine, can help to relieve joint pain and inflammation so that patients can return to their normal activities.
The meniscus is a wedge-shaped piece of cartilage in the knee that absorbs shock and cushions the joint. Meniscus tears can occur suddenly with a sports injury, or gradually with degenerative changes to the knee. Meniscus tears can result in knee pain, stiffness, catching or locking, and inability to move the knee through its full range of motion. The goal of treatment is to reduce pain, stiffness, and inflammation in the knee.
Rotator Cuff Tears
Rotator cuff tears are a common cause of shoulder pain and weakness, and are a common injury among athletes who do a lot of throwing or heavy lifting. Rotator cuff tears can cause pain when lifting and lowering the arm, which can affect your daily life along with your ability to participate in sports. After confirming the diagnosis, our physicians can recommend lifestyle modifications and regenerative medicine options to improve rotator cuff symptoms.
The spine is a complex structure, and there are a number of spine-related conditions that can cause back and neck pain. Our first step is always to confirm the source of spine pain before recommending treatment options. We treat a full range of conditions affecting the neck and back, including chronic headaches caused by neck pain, using nonsurgical methods. In addition to regenerative medicine, we can also recommend back and neck braces that may be helpful in relieving pain and improving symptoms.
