Why Take the PRP Leap?
With the current COVID-19 restrictions, most elective surgeries are postponed or cancelled. But for thousands of patients waiting on total joint, ligament and soft tissue surgeries, the pain and decreased function continues. Regenerative Complete would like to help by offering a bridge for patients who qualify for a regenerative injection. Dr. Robins will determine if a patient is a good candidate for PRP injections with a thorough orthopedic exam. This exam is covered by most insurance carriers and we do offer a self pay option. PRP can be a game changer to many patients seeking pain relief and additional joint function. Regenerative medicine such as PRP can be an effective tool to treat many orthopedic injuries as seen below.
It has never been more affordable then this exclusive offer to our patients.
Orthopedic Regenerative Medicine is a Game Changer
Regenerative medicine holds great promise as bridge or alternative solution to orthopedic surgery. For both chronic and acute pain patients the widening scope of minimally invasive orthopedic treatments available is exciting. While surgeries, such an total knee replacement, produce excellent outcomes and may be the best choice for some patients, the world of regenerative medicine is a game changer for athletes and those seeking daily living pain relief alike. Techniques and technology advancements such as stem cell therapy, platelet rich plasma therapy, gene transfer and tissue engineering, are expected to move the field of orthopedics into a new era. The research regenerative medicine bench is solidly in play at the orthopedic clinical bedside.
What is PRP Therapy?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is a conservative and holistic approach to increase the healing speed of damaged tissues. PRP uses super concentrated platelets and it is a natural choice of treatment for musculoskeletal pain such as osteoarthritis, plantar fasciitis, neuropathy, degenerative disorders, and other sports injuries. It is commonly done, complementing orthopedic surgeries to intensify the healing process.
How is PRP Therapy Administered?
A qualified professional will draw a small amount of blood and spin it in a centrifuge, isolating the platelets for your treatment. The site of injury is treated using the PRP preparation. PRP is carefully injected into the injured area combined with local anesthesia. The treatment area will be cleansed before applying a local anesthetic to guarantee a more pleasant experience. Then the patients own PRP will be injected into the predetermined treatment area. This will trigger the body’s natural healing process. It is expected for patients to experience pain for the first two weeks after the procedure, however pain is reported from mild to minimal.
Benefits of PRP Therapy
PRP therapy may be used to improve healing after surgery for some injuries. The ultimate goal of PRP is to eliminate pain through healing while providing results that last. Research studies have shown that PRP therapy can be effective in relieving pain and helping patients return to their normal lives.
