Regenerative medicine focuses on the natural healing of chronically injured tissue in the foot or ankle that is unable to heal itself. For this, your doctor will either replace damaged and non-functional tissue with healthy cells or stimulate the body’s own tissues to regenerate and repair themselves.
At Advanced Foot & Ankle Wellness Center, Dr. Melissa Wawrzynek recommends the use of Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT) and Extracorporeal Magnetotransduction Therapy (EMTT) as non-invasive forms of regenerative medicine that are designed to relieve pain in a risk-free manner.
She also uses stem cell injections and fat pad fillers to ease pain for her patients.
Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT) is the most advanced and effective non-invasive treatment method approved by the FDA.
This proprietary technology is based on a unique set of pressure waves that stimulate the patient’s metabolism, enhance blood circulation, and accelerate healing. It encourages damaged tissue to regenerate and eventually heal.
This non-invasive, office-based procedure represents a breakthrough treatment option for a broad range of musculoskeletal conditions.
Extracorporeal Magnetotransduction Therapy (EMTT) is a form of magnetic therapy that assists in the regeneration and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal conditions.
EMTT is a non-invasive form of treatment that uses high-energy electromagnetic pulses transmitted to the affected areas. EMTT uses a high oscillation frequency, allowing deeper penetration and superior tissue healing.

Focused Shockwave Therapy
Focus Shockwave Treatment is a cutting-edge, non-invasive therapy that uses high-energy sound waves to target and stimulate the body’s natural healing process. This advanced treatment option accelerates healing, reduces pain, and improves overall foot function.

Biologic Injection Therapy
Biologic injection therapy uses naturally found substances in your body to help you heal. A biologic injection contains specific material or cells that affect other nearby cells and processes. Biologic injection therapy utilizes your body’s healing power.
Biologic injection therapy is considered a form of regenerative medicine. Regenerative medicine encourages your body to fix itself by regenerating defective tissues.
One form of biologic used in biologic injection therapy is amniotic tissues. Amniotic tissue provides cutting-edge options for issues such as soft tissue pain, Achilles tendinosis, and other foot-related conditions. Amniotic tissue treatments provide a non-invasive way to deal with a range of foot issues, allowing you to avoid surgery.

Fat Pad Injections
Fat pad injections offer a minimally invasive way to counter the discomfort caused due to the loss of fat padding on your feet. These injections use first-of-its-kind human adipose tissue for tissue reconstruction. As an all-natural extracellular matrix, it is injected into the thinning fat pads in your feet.

Remy Laser Therapy
The Remy laser is an advanced, FDA-approved therapy option used to treat acute and inflammatory conditions of the foot, such as plantar fasciitis, bursitis, and tendonitis. “The Remy” is an advanced Class IV laser that accelerates tissue repair and cell growth in a non-toxic, non-invasive, and effective way.
