Surgery can’t always be prevented, but regenerative methods like platelet rich plasma (PRP) and stem cell therapy can be a potential alternative for some patients looking to avoid a knee arthroscopy or a knee replacement.
Stem Cell Therapy
Your stem cells have the unique ability of turning into any other type of cell in your body, and are used for repair. By taking stem cells from your own body, then processing them and injecting them into problem areas, the stem cells have a chance to get to work repairing the area causing you pain.
Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelets in your blood are valuable when it comes to healing due to their concentration of growth factors. Platelet rich plasma therapy involves withdrawing blood and separating the platelets to create a platelet rich injection.
Can I benefit from regenerative therapy?
