The Stem Cell Process
PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP)
PRP is processed from your blood. Although blood is primarily a liquid (plasma), it also contains other components, including platelets. Within platelets are growth factors that ma initiate tissue repair. Growth factors derived from platelets have also been shown to be responsible for bone regeneration, development of new blood vessels and stimulation of the wound healing process. The concentrated platelets in PRP may help optimize the conditions for healing.
Concentrated Bone Marrow Aspirate (BMA)
BMA is processed from bone marrow, which is the spongy tissue found in the center of bones. It is unique because it contains a rich supply of a broad range of stem cells. The cells found in concentrated BMA have been shown to support repair or growth of bone, cartilage, muscle, marrow. tendons, ligaments, and connective tissue.
CONCENTRATED adipose tissue
Concentrated adipose tissue is created from fat in your own body. Adipose tissue contains a significant concentration of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and is used as an MSC-rich scaffold that may aid in tissue regeneration.
The use of amniotic membrane and umbilical cord tissue grafting which is done by a simple ultrasound guided injection has been shown to restore range of motion, heal and regenerate damaged tendons and ligaments.
