About Us

About the Company

Charleston Regenerative Medicine is owned and operated by Francis M. Saldanha, M.D., who has been practicing pain management for more than 25 years. At Charleston Regenerative Medicine, we utilize state-of-the-art equipment and highly-skilled techniques to help treat pain at the source, rather than managing the symptoms of pain. Charleston Regenerative Medicine is located in the Kanawha City area of Charleston, WV. The company has one physician, Francis M. Saldanha, M.D., who personally treats each patient, which allows him to have a thorough understanding of their issues, and to develop a treatment plan tailored to meet each patient’s individual needs.

What We Do

Charleston Regenerative Medicine offers cutting-edge, non-surgical treatments that have the potential to heal the pain, rather than just treating the symptoms. These procedures are FDA-Approved and have been performed in Europe for over 20 years. Collectively, these procedures are called Regenerative Injection Therapies, or RIT. RIT stimulates and accelerates your own body’s natural ability to heal itself. Platelet rich plasma injections are one of the most effective RIT.

How We Do It

At Charleston Regenerative Medicine, all procedures are performed in a sterile setting with the use of ultrasound and/or fluoroscopic guidance in order to maximize the results of the procedures. We always utilize proper sterile technique in order to minimize the potential for unwanted complications. Our physician, Francis M. Saldanha, M.D. has over 25 years of experience in minimally invasive procedures with additional training in regenerative injection techniques. Additionally, Dr. Saldanha is Board Certified and Fellowship trained in Pain Medicine. We utilize equipment and supplies that are specially designed to help us obtain some of the purest concentrations of PRP in the industry. This helps to provide for more positive outcomes and pain relief for our patients.
