Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Ready for a safe, effective way to avoid surgery and still get a major repair on an injured joint, tendon, or muscle? A scientific breakthrough known as Body Tissue PRP Repair uses your own blood plasma (autologous serum) to extract highly concentrated platelets to create a “healing elixir” or Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). Platelets are part of your blood system, and are a specialized type of blood cell involved in the rapid healing of sports injuries, as almost any joint or tissue can benefit. In fact, we can safely help some causes of erectile dysfunction too.
“Baby” Stem Cell Therapy
Platelets also contain large reservoirs of natural growth factors as well as stem cells. A version of PRP repair was recently performed on Tiger Woods’ knee, when his physician gave him an injection of his own blood products to help Woods recover faster. This is what we call “baby” stem cell therapy.
PRP contains remarkable healing properties that helps a body to regenerate and repair tissue. With our highly refined technique, we can localize the injury and inject it in the proper location. In the blood stream minute quantities of stem cells travel around the body. Through the use of PRP we utilize concentrated stem cells to repair and remold scar tissue in a safe and effective procedure.
In the platelet concentration process, seven fundamental protein growth factors (also called cytokines) are extracted and condensed. We know 1) Platelet-derived growth factors – PDGFaa, PDGFab, PDGFbb, 2) Transforming growth factors – TGFb1, TGFb2 3) Vascular endothelial growth factors – VEGF and 4) Epithelial growth factors – EGF do the healing!
