The use of platelet-rich plasma is a truly state-of-the art method of helping the body heal from a variety of injuries. PRP is injected directly into an injured area, such as injuries to shoulders, knees, elbows or hips. They can also be injected into tendons and ligaments. PRP has been utilized by many world-class athletes to speed their healing and get them back onto the field, court or track. In many cases, healing is accelerated so much that it’s possible to return to a pain-free life in four to six weeks.
the use of a Wharton’s jelly*, a structural tissue allograft to be applied directly to the site of the defect using a syringe. Application of Wharton’s jelly* has shown to improve capacity for daily activities by decreasing pain and inflammation, all by improving soft tissue strength and integrity. It contains a high concentration of growth factors, proteins, and cytokines that contribute to the regenerative process by signaling the body’s own cells to the site of the defect. By supplementing the defect with Wharton’s jelly*, our goal is to use this structural tissue supplement as a non-invasive alternative to surgery.
