Acute and chronic ligament injuries (sprains)
Elbow, Hand, Knee, Foot and Ankle
And many other conditions associated with scarred or non-healing tissue.
The latest exciting news is that PRP has also been shown to be effective in treating osteoarthritis (OA). Arthritis is an inflammatory condition involving the breakdown of cartilage within a joint. PRP treatment can be effective in re-growing lost cartilage or slowing cartilage breakdown, there is now evidence that PRP is effective in treating the symptoms of arthritis. In fact, several new studies have shown that PRP is more effective than typical conservative treatments and has even performed better than visco-supplementation (hyaluronic acid injections) in head-to-head studies. PRP may be an excellent non-invasive alternative to joint replacement surgery in treating the symptoms of arthritis. PRP can be used to treat the symptoms of arthritis of the shoulder, hip, knee, ankle and foot.
Fat/Adipose Tissue graft (Adipose Derived Stem Cells ADSC’s)
Stem Cells from Autologous fat graft (fat from your own body) for the treatment of knee osteoarthritis. It’s a simple injection of autologous fat graft to improve chronic osteoarthritis. The treatment involves using the self-lubricating effect of their own abdominal/belly fat (autologous fat) inside the joint to improve joint function and reduce the pain and stiffness they experience. It is performed as day care procedure under local anesthesia and sedation. The fat is obtained and prepared, then injected inside the joint of the knee.
We see improvement in the pain and stiffness of the joint physical function by the combined lubricating and regenerative effect of fluid preparation.
