Focused on a Regenerative Approach

As Tennessee’s leading Regenerative Medicine Practice, Nashville Spine Institute offers the most advanced therapy options for Stem Cell and PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) therapy. For the last five years Dr. Brandon Tolman has performed hundreds of regenerative medicine procedures as the most prominent physician within the field of regenerative medicine in the Greater Tennessee area.

Stem Cell Therapy

Are you ready to get out in the world and start living again? With Stem Cell Therapy, it is possible. Stem Cells aid in the healing process by promoting your body's natural cellular repair processes at the injection site. The body's ability to heal itself and regenerate tissue after an injury is the reason why Stem Cell Therapy works so well. Stem Cells at the injury site work to attract the important cellular components needed to repair your tissue at a rate faster than if left on its own.

PRP Therapy​

PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is an effective way to jump start the recovery process from soft tissue injuries & repetitive sports injuries such as Jumper's Knee and Tennis Elbow. PRP works by concentrating the Platelets in your blood and then injecting the enriched plasma at the injury site. The result is an increase in growth factors at the injury site, which accelerates both your body's response to injury, as well as the cellular repair of soft tissue damage.
PRP therapy can reduce your down time while reducing your pain, and help get you back to the activities you enjoy with ease.

Discseel® Procedure

The Discseel® Procedure is a revolutionary regenerative medicine procedure that allows you to stop suffering from Chronic Back Pain. Nashville Spine Institute is one of a select few medical practices in the US that offers this minimally-invasive spinal procedure that repairs the annular tears in the degenerated discs of your spine which often are the source of your pain. With The Discseel® Procedure, we improved outcomes over Spinal Fusions and achieved shorter recovery times than most back pain surgeries.

Dr. Brandon Tolman is personally trained by Dr. Kevin Pauza,  the creator of the Discseel® Procedure. Dr. Tolman is the only physician that offers the procedure for Thoracic Back Pain in addition to treating Lumbar related Back Pain.

For decades, physicians have been recommending spinal fusions to patients, only for them to fail. These life-altering procedures have lead to some of the highest percentages of surgical failures and opioid dependency among surgical patients. So the real question is: why are doctors not recommending a procedure that has greater success? It’s simple. An average spinal fusion patient is worth between $250,000 and $750,000 in insurance payouts over the patient’s lifetime. It was the high failure rate that lead to the creation of the Discseel® Procedure. So how do the two procedures compare to each other? Here are some facts:
  • In over 40% of patients that receive a spinal fusion, the fusion does not address the long term source of the pain
  • At least 1/3 of all spinal fusion patients need a second or third fusion of their spine within 10 years
  • The Discseel® Procedure has been successful in permanently relieving back pain in 70% of patients that had a previous failed spinal procedure, such as a spinal fusion
  • The Discseel® Procedure is a non-invasive outpatient procedure, whereas a spinal fusion is an invasive procedure that leaves scars, hardware, and requires days of recovery in a hospital
