There are some dormant regeneration tricks hidden in our genome which can
be reactivated, and similiar applies to external means (stem cells & Co).

But anything beyond that, and I have a hunch it may require that, to mend
e.g. a severed spinal cord would need nanosurgery, and if you can do that,
you might want do a lot more than just repair. Isofunctional substitution
(aka incremental or gradual in situ uploading) is within touching distance
