The long term success of Dr. Greenberg’s patients is attributed to a specialized approach of the examination process. Deemed “The Greenberg Method,” this strategy not only looks into the area of damage and pain, but also evaluates the mechanics and structure of the bone and joints related to the area of the pain. For instance, when a patient describes their condition or problem they’re experiencing, Dr. Greenberg will carefully examine the specified area in addition to surrounding areas, joints, tendons, and ligaments. In executing The Greenberg Method, Dr. Greenberg often discovers that conditions experienced in one area of the body are often rooted in a different area that hasn’t been treated before. While an isolated joint treatment ignores physiology and the evaluation of movement, The Greenberg Method’s full-body examination produces a comprehensive diagnosis and treatment plan. In return, the patient experiences a greater reduction in pain and improvement in function, which helps them get back on their feet to resume their daily routines, pain free. A Comprehensive Kinetic Diagnosis enables the treatment team to rebalance your body, remove stressors on your affected joint, remove pressure from painful structures, and return your body to a healthy equilibrium. After the Comprehensive Kinetic Diagnosis, Dr. Greenberg will discuss what regenerative therapies he recommends for your condition. Together, you will come up with an individualized treatment plan.

We offer stem cell therapy, platelet-rich plasma, prolotherapy, and IV nutrition therapy. Based on your condition, Dr. Greenberg may recommend one or more of these treatments.

Stem Cell Therapy uses the mesenchymal stem cells and biological growth factors to heal and regenerate injured tissue such as ligaments, tendons, joints and cartilage. When combined with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment, a stem cell treatment is turbocharged with more growth factors and cells that have a greater ability to recruit the immune system to heal.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) are concentrates of platelets and growth factors derived from the patient’s own blood, and then are injected with pinpoint precision into damaged and pain causing areas. The purpose of PRP is to enable the body to naturally heal chronic areas of damage that have not healed on their own.

In prolotherapy, Dr. Greenberg injects substances such as dextrose and lidocaine at the site of pain. Prolotherapy causes a minor therapeutic reaction that alerts your body to proliferate blood cells and healing components that are sent to the injection site.

IV therapy refers to the intravenous administration of nutraceuticals (vitamins, minerals, and biological compounds) to promote healing, support bodily functions, and promote longevity and wellness. There are several different kinds of IV therapies, each tailored to a specific ailment. Dr. Greenberg works with each patient to determine the best combination of nutrients for them to promote healing, immune support, hydration, and nourishment.

For stem cell therapy, a local anesthetic is used to numb both the harvest and treatment region when possible. The harvest area is the site where your cells are drawn from your adipose (fat) tissue using two very small incisions. They are then prepared according to FDA guidelines by your Stem Cell Therapy team. Dr. Greenberg will then perform a comprehensive treatment to the damaged region and related areas that further contribute to the source of pain and joint dysfunction. Often, the adipose is used as a fat graft in patients who have joint damage in knees, ankles, hips, shoulders, elbows and thumbs, while patients with neck and back pain will receive direct treatment to areas of the spine and sacrum.

For platelet-rich-plasma, blood is drawn from the patient much like during a blood test. The blood is sent to the lab, where it is filtered. Generally, a sample of whole blood contains about 93% red blood cells, 6% platelets and 1% white blood cells (WBC). To create PRP, the sample that was drawn is placed in a centrifuge where the platelets and white blood cells are separated from the red blood cells. The mixture is inverted in terms of the proportions.

The concentration of the red blood cells, which do little to promote healing, is reduced to around 5%. Beneficial platelets and white blood cells (WBC) are increased to about 94% in the sample. Your physician will then inject the platelet-rich plasma in and around the damaged joint or tissue to initiate the regeneration process. (The PRP sample may also contain a small amount of harmless anticoagulant similar to vitamin C.)

Regenerative treatments are shown to significantly reduce pain and improve joint function and quality of life. Prolotherapy, Platelet-Rich Plasma, and Stem Cell Treatments are excellent alternatives to pain management or surgery. Surgical patients developed four times as many complications than nonsurgical patients, including infections, blood clots, and knee stiffness that requires another procedure to fix. Dr. Greenberg is especially sought after by individuals who have not been helped by physical therapy, chiropractic treatments, osteopathy, steroid injections or surgery.
Every patient is different; effectiveness varies based on age, the severity of the injury, immune response, and their typical rate of healing. For some patients, positive results may be felt within a week. Other patients may require several months of healing to feel better. It is essential to keep in mind that the treatment is activating your body to heal itself by regenerating soft tissue This produces long term relief. You have to give the cell structures time to grow back, but when healed most patients will experience long term results, as some of our patients have been followed for over 20 years and have maintained pain free living. With correction of pelvic tilt, which is commonly seen, patients may experience less limping and feel a greater sense of balance almost immediately. This correction can also reduce pressure to the lumbar spine and may provide for relief of pain. Other corrections to the body are performed to restore normal anatomy and provide a restoration of function.
Your condition, the severity of your pain or dysfunction, your medical history, and other factors such as age, immune response, and the rate of healing will determine what kind of treatment protocol Dr. Greenberg recommends for you. Oftentimes, you will be recommended a combination approach with more than one type of regenerative therapy. Stem cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma are commonly combined. Prolotherapy can also be combined with them or be used on its own.

For over twenty years, Dr. Greenberg has studied the behavior of stem cells and researched their complex nature. Since 1999, he has treated patients using regenerative medicine and has researched how tissue-specific stem cells function in the body, how they regenerate nerve, joint and tissue systems and how they depend on other blood components to heal an injury. He will typically perform several hundred stem cell procedures and a few thousand PRP treatments per year.

Dr. Greenberg is a pioneering leader in developing new stem cell-based therapies. He serves as the chair of the Institutional Review Board of the American Association of Stem Cell Physicians and is a founding board member. He is also a consulting physician for DSM, a leader in regenerative biological medicine. He was a member of the first team to publish a case study to repair a meniscus tear using autologous stem cell therapy. He also has the distinction to be selected and accredited as a member of The Main Line Health Dee Adams Center for Integrative and Regenerative Medicine at Bryn Mawr and he is a Clinical Professor at the Marcus Institute of Integrative Medicine at the Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. Dr. Greenberg has lectured nationally and internationally, and currently teaches doctors, fellows, residents and students.

Patient Testimonials

Greenberg Regenerative Medicine encourages you to read about the countless success stories our patient’s have reported over the years.
With hesitation or reservation, my experience with Dr. Greenberg has been exceptional. He is without a doubt one of the most brilliant and skilled physicians I know. He was able to diagnose and treat my spinal and neuromuscular injuries successfully. Dr. Greenberg gave me hope (and healed my pain) where there was otherwise no option but surgery. I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Greenberg to my friends, family and anyone who suffers from chronic pain. In addition, his staff is delightful and accommodating!

My fiance' has spent the past few years going back and forth to different doctors who have been unable to help her. A family friend recommended Dr Greenberg and on the first visit he corrected her pelvic tilt and gave her more pain relief without drugs than years of pain killers have been able to do. She now has a diagnosis , a treatment plan , and has shown massive improvements. Dr Greenberg fixes the source of the problem and not just the symptoms of the problem. He has a unique ability to examine her and with pinpoint accuracy is able to find the spot that is causing her pain without her having to tell him , any other doctor has needed long explanations to find her problems and none of them have been able to improve them but Dr Greenberg has. I HIGHLY recommend Dr Greenberg to anyone with chronic or sports related injuries and pain.
Dr. Greenberg is an exceptional physician. I have spent many years going to the best hospitals (HSS, Columbia-Pres., NYU) in search of root cause to my physical ailments. Dr. Greenberg is 2 hrs away, yet I found the trip easy, because I knew, after my initial consultation that Dr. Greenberg is the most empathetic, concerning and knowledgeable physician I've encountered. He is truthful, transparent and has incredible bedside manners. After 3 treatments, my back is now in great condition and no more issues--allowing me to live life to the fullest extent!
Doug C.
Dr. Greenberg is exceptional. He spent 30 minutes listening to me explain my pain issues and thoughtfully examines my body unlike other doctors. He was methodical and explained why things were occurring and treated me. Dr. Greenberg treated me over the course of 3 visits. He is empathetic, caring and so down to earth. A gem of a person and a doctor that truly knows holistic medicine!
Doug S.
Dr. Greenberg has literally been my savior. I had years of terrible low/SIJ pain after an injury. I tried every treatment under the sun, but nothing worked, until I found Dr. Greenberg. He actually took to the time to evaluate my body as a whole, my movements, my history, and my story, whereas other doctors just fixated on imagery. After about 2-3 treatments with Dr. Greenberg, I had restored hope that I was going to get better. I'm now virtually pain free in my lower back. He saved me.
I've been under Dr. Greenberg's care for 5 months now. When I started with him, my major complaint was a hip that would go out often and bad low back pain. I was experiencing shooting sciatic pain and spent a lot of time in bed. Now in June 2020, my hip is completely pain free. The PRP and prolotherapy have literally changed my life. I'm able to take daily walks and feel the best I have in a long, long time. Dr. Greenberg has helped me so much, he has earned my trust and appreciation!
