Regenerative Medicine

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine is an advanced form of medicine that has the potential to heal damaged and diseased organs to help fully restore health. Dr. Kochert views regenerative medicine as a tool that gives you the power to take ownership of your own healing. Instead of taking a pill to mask your symptoms, it gives you an opportunity to heal from within.

What are common regenerative medicine therapies?

Dr. Kochert wants to put you in control of your health and offers many regenerative medicine therapy options. Some of these options include:

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

PRP is an advanced treatment that utilizes your body’s own healing powers for natural tissue engineering. PRP is a blood product Dr. Kochert creates from your own blood that contains a high concentration of growth factors that stimulate healing and the regeneration of healthy tissue.

Stem cell therapy

Stem cells are the blank cells in your body that have the ability to transform themselves into any type of cell you may need. For therapeutic purposes, Dr. Kochert harvests stem cells from your own body and injects them directly into your diseased or damaged tissue to heal and help your body create new, healthier tissue.


Dr. Kochert offers prolotherapy as a non-surgical treatment for chronic pain caused by weak or damaged connective tissue, specifically ligaments, tendons, and cartilage. The treatment irritates the damaged tissue, which then stimulates the healing process.

Dr. Kochert works one-on-one with you to determine the type of regenerative medicine that would provide the most benefits for you and your health concern.

What are some aesthetic uses of regenerative medicine?

In addition to using regenerative medicine to help your body heal damaged or diseased tissue and reduce pain, Dr. Kochert also uses regenerative medicine for aesthetic treatments. Some of the aesthetic uses include:

Vampire Breast Lift®

The Vampire Breast Lift utilizes growth factors that give your breasts more support and a more youthful appearance. The aim of the lift is to provide your breasts with the support you would expect from a well-made bra.

Hair loss and hair restoration

Dr. Kochert also utilizes regenerative medicine to help improve the thickness and health of your hair.

Vampire Facial®

To turn back the hands of time, Dr. Kochert also uses PRP for her Vampire Facial. This revolutionary facial combines PRP with microneedling to revitalize and freshen your look.
