WHAT CAN REGENERATIVE MEDICINE BE USED FOR?

Wound Repair, Including Burns & Slow-Healing Wounds
Certain Spinal Conditions
TWO KINDS OF THERAPY:
Platelet Rich Plasma
What is Platelet Rich Plasma?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a highly concentrated blood sample that contains isolated cells called platelets and some of the blood liquid called plasma. At this time, we are primarily utilizing Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) as it is the easier to obtain and concentrate, and works very well in the most commonly treated diseases.
When used as therapy, PRP can regenerate and heal tissues by:
- Recruiting other healing cells to come into an injured or diseased area to clean the area and remove other damaged cells
- Releasing proteins called “Growth Factors” that stimulate tissue regeneration

What are Stem Cells?
Stem cell therapy is similar but a sample of bone marrow must be obtained and concentrated before it is injected into the diseased area. We feel this therapy holds great promise for patients with spinal cord diseases. Due to the ease and effectiveness of PRP, for most other disease issues that is the preferred therapy.
