Our regenerative medicine services include Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), Platelet Lysate (PL) and Platelet Rich Fibrin each of which use concentrated growth factors to promote healing and regeneration in damaged tissues. PRP is created by extracting a patient's blood, spinning it in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma, and then injecting it into the affected area. PL is created by subjecting PRP to several freeze-thaw cycles to liberate growth factors all at once. This is especially ideal for nerve repair. Platelet Rich Fibrin contains the healing proteins and growth factors within a fibrin glue that keeps nutrients contained in the treatment area a bit longer.
All injections are guided with ultrasound to assure exact placement of the PRP for best results.
These procedures are safe and effective, although not yet covered by most insurance plans. We offer financing plans to make regenerative medicine accessible to everyone.
