The clinic, founded and led by regenerative medicine specialist, Dr. Otoño Silva, MD, has updated its services to incorporate recent advances in cellular medicine, which allow patients to harness the healing abilities of their own cells in order to mitigate or eliminate pain.

IOW now offers bone marrow concentrate – BMC – cellular therapy, which uses a small amount of concentrated bone marrow from the patient’s hip to restore damaged bone, cartilage, and soft tissues.
The global cell therapy market, currently valued at just under $8 billion is expected to continue growing by approximately 15% per year through 2028. While regulatory approval for myriad treatments progresses slowly, regenerative medicine continues to offer effective treatments for several chronic conditions. Many different types of cells may be used as part of a therapy or treatment for a number of diseases and disorders thanks to new technology.
For BMC cellular therapy, Dr. Silva extracts a small amount of hip bone marrow aspirate, via a minimally invasive short procedure, before processing the cells into a concentrate. He then injects that concentrate into the injury sites, using ultrasound or x-ray guidance. This treatment can be effective for a range of chronically painful conditions, including osteoarthritis, tendinitis, and spine pain.
Additional services offered by the clinic include platelet-rich plasma – PRP – therapy, evidence-based treatment that uses a patient’s own blood to repair injuries. In this case, Dr. Silva draws blood from a patient’s arm, concentrates the platelets and growth factors from the patient’s blood in his lab, then injects the serum of platelet concentrate back into the patient’s tissues. This procedure can target many of the same conditions as BMC cellular therapy. Recommended treatments will vary and depend on discussions between the patient and Dr. Silva.
Otoño Silva, MD is board certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and fellowship-trained in Interventional Orthopedics. His specialty is non-surgical and natural regenerative injection therapies, used to address sports injuries, common neck and back pain problems such as degenerative disc disease (DDD), herniated discs, and nerve pain. Dr. Silva is among only a few doctors in the country with the training to offer these advanced diagnostics and treatments.
One patient commented: “I was prepared for a hard sell and instead, Dr. Silva gave me information. I had PRP and stem cell therapy about 2 months ago and my life has changed. I am 100% pain-free for everyday activities and the things that are still challenging are getting better. Dr. Silva gave me my life back. I would recommend Dr. Silva to anyone.”
