Regenerative Cell Therapy
This technique uses cells obtained from a person’s own fat through a small procedure under local anesthesia. The fat is removed and placed in a centrifuge where it isolates the fat from the cells. These cells are then injected into injured areas of the body such as joints, tendons and ligaments.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
This technique is used to accelerate the healing of tendons or soft tissue conditions. The process starts with blood being drawn and then spun in a centrifuge, helping increase the baseline concentration of platelets in the blood. The blood with platelets is then injected into the area and can be done with the use of ultrasound or fluoroscopy x-ray. A series of injections may be needed to find relief from pain in stubborn areas.
To decrease nerve pain, accelerate healing, improve ligament or joint disorders and to enhance results from previous treatments or surgeries, amniotic regenerative cell injections are available. This technique obtains amniotic cells from amniotic fluid, which is provided from consenting donors during scheduled caesarean sections. This fluid is usually discarded after the procedure, but can be very beneficial since it as an extremely high concentration of amniotic cells. These amniotic ells can promote the repair and regeneration of tissue with its anti-inflammatory properties that relieve pain.
