About Regenerative Therapies:
Regenerative therapy procedures are performed as outpatient procedures. They involve injection of concentrated growth factors or stem cells to regenerate and heal tissues in joints, muscles, tendons or ligaments. These therapies can be used to treat acute or chronic pain conditions related to degenerative disease.
Regenerative therapies include obtaining concentrated platelets, growth factors or adult mesenchymal cell types shown to be capable of accelerating the healing process.
Osteoarthritis & Advanced Therapies
Osteoarthritis is the most common cause of chronic joint pain. Osteoarthritis involves the entire joint, including the nearby muscles, underlying bone, ligaments and connective tissue. In osteoarthritis, the supportive tissue called cartilage degenerates, leading to inflammation and pain. This type of arthritis is common in shoulders, hips, knees, hands and feet. Patients will often complain of joint stiffness, throbbing and swelling. There is no cure for osteoarthritis, but regenerative medicine therapies such as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and bone marrow of treatments derived stem cell therapy are a new generation of treatments that have been proven to be safe, effective, and have lasting results.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is plasma with a super-physiologic concentration of platelets and growth factors that promote healing.
The PRP and growth factors are obtained directly from the patient's own blood and concentrated to produce highly concentrated and pure PRP.
Adipose Mesenchymal Cells
Adipose (fat) is also a great source of mesenchymal stem cells.
Lipo-aspiration of adipose is a quick and simple outpatient procedure to collect adipose tissue for mesenchymal stem cells from the abdomen.
Allograft tissues are collected from living healthy donors. These tissues have been shown clinically and scientifically to support soft tissue repair, reduce inflamation and minimize scar tissue formation.Tissues include a number of structural proteins, growth factors and cytokines, which promote cellular proliferation and new collagen formation, and reduce inflammation.
