Stem Cell + Platelet Rich
Plasma Injections

Personalized Regenerative Therapies

Why has the use of Platelet Rich Plasma therapy for knee osteoarthirits seen a dramatic increase in the past few years?  Because researchers are showing that PRP can regenerate tissue in patients suffering from knee osteoarthirits and PRP can also enhance healing after ligament reconstruction, a journal devoted to obviously anthroscoyp, surgeons are told that PRP offeres better symptomatic relief to patients with early knee degenerative changes ( than hyaluronic acid or placebo), and it’s use should be considered in patients with knee osteoarthritis.

Benefits of PRP Injections

  • Pain relief after healing
  • Repair damaged ligaments
  • Repair damaged tendons
  • Helps to heal surgery wounds
  • Speeds healing of a bone fracture
  • Heals arthritic damage to joints

How Does a PRP Injection Work?

PRP injection delivers a high concentration of endogenous (your own home-grown) platelets to the knee where osteoarthritis is present.  Blood is composed of plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.  It’s these platelets that are the injury’s “first responders” and help revascularize in injured area, construct new tissue, and stop the bleeding.  

Because platelets play a significant role in the healing of tissue, reintroducing a high concentration of platelets directly into the injured area may enhance the healing process.

What is Stem Cell Therapy?

Stem cell therapy is different from PRP therapy. Unlike platelets taken from your blood, stem cells are retrieved from your bone marrow or fat deposits. Stem cells are unspecialized cells that can replace a variety of different specialized cells in your body, where necessary. Unlike platelets, stem cells are not readily available – every person has a limited supply of them in their bone marrow or fat deposits. Therefore, extracting stem cells is more complicated than isolating platelets from a blood sample.   

To perform stem cell therapy, doctors take out stem cells from bone marrow or a fat deposit through an incision or needle (whichever is feasible). Then, they create a concentrated solution with the stem cells. This solution is injected into the problem area. The stem cells enter the area and replace much needed specialized cells, triggering a healing response. Stem cells can even form new tissue that is needed in the body – it is truly a revolutionary regenerative treatment.

Because platelets play a significant role in the healing of tissue, reintroducing a high concentration of platelets directly into the injured area may enhance the healing process.
