Stem cells work as an internal repair system, dividing without limit to replenish many different cell types. Stem cells are harvested from your own bone marrow and injected with growth factors into your damaged joint. Stems cells are ideal to help treat a variety of conditions including: rotator cuff conditions, tendonitis, ligament injuries, and cartilage damage from osteoarthritis.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) begins with a simple blood draw. Your blood is centrifuged to extract the platelet-rich cells, which contain concentrated growth factors. The Platelet-Rich Plasma is injected into an injured or degenerated part of the body. A PRP injection promotes healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, joints, and other musculoskeletal conditions.
Regenerative medicine offers solutions and hope for people whose conditions have proven beyond repair previously.
