More and more, the medical world is turning to the incredible resources that lie within the human body to treat medical problems. Regenerative urology is one such field where doctors aren’t merely looking to put a patch on the issue, but find healthy, long-term solutions. At Columbus Anti-Aging Medicine and Aesthetic Surgery, Dr. Gene Meisenberg uses stem cell therapy to address a host of urological problems in his patients in Brooklyn, New York.

For years, medical solutions for most problems came in the form of pills, surgeries, and other methods that bypassed the human body’s natural resources. As researchers dove into stem cells, they began to realize that some of these solutions are right under their noses.
What makes stem cells so interesting is that they’re considered undifferentiated, which means they aren’t designed for any one job. Instead, they have the amazing ability to transform into whatever cell is needed and multiply as that cell.
As medical experts began to understand stem cells better, they began to harvest them and redirect them to areas on the body that needed reinforcements, such as joints after surgery. The stem cells went to work to speed up healing and regenerate tissue.
When it comes to regenerative urology, Dr. Meisenberg taps the power of stem cells for the following conditions:
Benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH, is the name given to an enlarged prostate gland. The condition is common among men as they age.
A bacterial infection, or UTI, causes inflammation in your bladder.
This is when your prostate is swollen or inflamed because of a bacterial infection.
Lack of control over your bladder, which causes urinary leakage. This condition is common among women as they age.
Dr. Meisenberg harvests your stem cells from your bone marrow, making them autologous stem cells. The procedure takes only 5-10 minutes, and Dr. Meisenberg performs it in his office.
Once he has a suitable concentration of stem cells, Dr. Meisenberg prepares them and injects your stem cells directly into the treatment areas. Once injected, the stem cells immediately go to work to regenerate healthy cells in the area.
Stem cell therapy isn’t approved by the FDA yet, but promising results are coming out of patient-funded research and experimental studies. At his practice, Dr. Meisenberg has successfully used stem cells for regenerative urology, eliminating the need for more invasive procedures.
