What Is ReNu?
ReNu is a new regenerative and anti-inflammatory treatment for osteoarthritis and other orthopedic injuries and conditions. It is a single-injection treatment that is derived from donated human amniotic fluid and tissues that contain growth factors, stem cells, and extracellular matrix components. It is a minimally invasive, safe treatment that may be able to speed healing and help you to delay or avoid surgery.
The most common use for ReNu is in the treatment of osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis, and it affects about 27 million people. ReNu helps reduce the inflammation associated with osteoarthritis, helps to heal the joint, and can decrease the rate of deterioration of the joint or stop it entirely.
ReNu can also be used for other orthopedic conditions, including the healing and treatment of sports injuries such as torn rotator cuffs or bursitis, as well as orthopedic injuries such as plantar fasciitis and tendinosis.
What to Expect
You will receive your ReNu injection in your doctor’s office. The doctor may numb the area before placing the injection, although there will likely be minimal discomfort during the procedure. You may need to apply ice to the site of the injection for 15 minutes after the treatment if you have any discomfort. It is important that you avoid heavy exercise for two days after your injection. Results from the ReNu injection often last up to one year.
If you suffer from osteoarthritis or have sustained an orthopedic injury that is not healing on its own, ReNu could be the answer for you. Contact us today for more information or to schedule your initial examination to determine if ReNu is right for you.
