Regenerative Medicine

Autologous Stem Cell Therapy, Platelet Rich Plasma and Prolotherapy.


Even thou they are all related I will describe each separately under a different tab so as to give you a better idea of what each entails. They all fall under the heading of Regenerative Medicine because their purpose is to regenerate and promote healing of damaged or injured tissues.

 

The purpose of regenerative medicine is to regenerate and promote healing of damaged tissues. Among the techniques that fall under this category that are used in our office we have Autologus Stem Cell Therapy, PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma and Prolotherapy. I will describe each one separately.

 

Here is a common question. Are PRP injections and Stem Cell therapy safe?

 

Research and clinical data show that PRP injections and stem cells are extremely safe, with minimal risk for any adverse reaction or complication. Because the injectable products are obtained from your own blood and tissues there is no concern for rejection or disease transmission. There is a small risk of infection from any injection into the body, but this is rare. Recent research has suggested that PRP may have an anti-bacterial property, which protects against possible infection.
