Cutting Edge Technology

Biological approaches to treat orthopaedic injuries seek to improve clinical outcomes by promoting tissue regeneration and healing. These approaches can be used in isolation or as an augment to surgical interventions. They include, but are not limited to, preparations of growth factors, autologous blood products, and cells.

Autologous Conditioned Plasma And Lipoaspirate Injections

Autologous conditioned plasma (ACP) is a concentration of platelets and growth factors created from a small amount of your own blood. These cells are vital for tissue regeneration and repair. Platelets, once thought of being responsible for only clotting, have been proven to be a reservoir of these vital healing components. Increased levels of growth factors have the potential to improve signaling and recruitment of cells for healing.

Platelet Rich Plasma Injections

A platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection is a minimally invasive therapy using a concentration of plasma, harvested from a patient’s own blood, to treat many types of sports injuries or to relieve muscle, joint, or tendon, and ligament pain, while significantly speeding up recovery. Platelet-rich plasma is known to have an increased level of growth factors, or proteins, which has proven vital for healing damaged tissue, and aids in regeneration and repair. Increased levels of these important growth factors, delivered through a PRP injection, can accelerate the body’s natural healing process by regenerating cells to repair damaged tissue.
