Our Top Regenerative Orthopedics Doctors:
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) & Stem Cell Therapy
Regenerative medicine is the process of replacing or "regenerating" human cells in order to re-establish normal function. Orthopedics has long been at the forefront of regenerative medicine. The use of bone growth stimulating products and cartilage healing therapy have been utilized for decades in orthopedic surgery.
In the past, major developments occurred in tissue engineering technologies for growing new tissue, such as cartilage. These usually involved harvesting cells from the patient, expanding them in a culture and then, eventually, putting them into where the damage exists.
Now, major advances, such as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), allow us to obtain the most healing cells, simply, by drawing some blood from the patient. We, then, concentrate those most healing cells right in the office and inject it directly to where it is most needed for the patient.
We can also get even more potent healing Stem Cells by retrieving it from near the hip area. These stem cells, also, have an anti-inflammatory ability and are, particularly, effective for damaged areas that are very inflamed. Further developments allow us now to even utilize donated tissue such as fat cells. This keeps the patient’s discomfort to a minimum.
