The regenerative therapies we use include Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Bone Marrow Concentrate (BMC) therapies. These are being used to effectively alleviate a number of chronic orthopedic conditions, including arthritis, sports injuries, tendinitis/tendinosis, nerve injuries and more.
The physician will determine which regenerative therapy will work best for you based on personal experience and best practices used by practitioners around the world who perform similar treatments. They will also take into account the severity of the injury and/or disease.
Our highly trained physicians will use carefully guided ultrasound to find a sample of stem cells or platelets, extract them and then concentrate this tissue in a special centrifuge. The sample is then injected at the site of an injured tendon, ligament, muscle, bone or joint, again using ultrasound to guide the procedure. A local anesthetic is used at the injection site. It’s similar to a steroid injection. All of this is done in one outpatient visit. Watch more here.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a concentrated form of your own platelets obtained by processing your blood in a special centrifuge. When an injury occurs, platelets naturally begin the healing process in your body. The platelets release signaling proteins that attract your body’s stem cells to the injured area. By injecting concentrated PRP into an area of concern, your body will recognize this site as a priority to heal it more quickly and thoroughly.
Bone Marrow Concentrate (BMC)
Bone Marrow Concentrate (BMC) is a procedure in which the physician removes your body’s own stem cells and concentrates them into a sample to inject into the injured area(s). The high concentration of stem cells works directly at the injury site to increase the healing potential. Watch more here.
Conditions We Treat
Regenerative orthopedic medicine can relieve both acute and chronic pain that many active adults experience in the knee, hip, wrist, elbow, shoulder, ankle and any other joint. A number of uncomfortable conditions can be treated, including (but not limited to):
