Platelet Rich Plasma Stem Cell Plus Therapy
When this Platelet Rich Plasma Stem Cell Plus therapy is injected at the site of the injury it augments the bodies healing response by greater that 500%.
We are seeing stunning results in a wide spectrum of uses, such as:
Overuse conditions, Achilles tendonitis, rotator cuff Injury, patellar tendonitis and instability, feet and all kinds of muscle, cartilage, tendon and ligament injuries.
Joint injuries to backs, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, hips, pelvis and SI joints, knees and ankles show remarkable improvement with PRP Treatment and chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia, arthritis and neuropathy respond well to PRP treatment as well.
Studies have shown the significant improvement experienced by patients often eliminates the need for more risky therapies such as long-term use of narcotic pain pills, anti-inflammatory steroids and most importantly, surgery.
It is important to remember that our PRP Therapy uses your own bodies healing power to heal itself!
The procedure is done in our office. We draw a small amount of your blood, place it in a centrifuge to separate the components of your blood including the platelets and stem cells. We extract the platelets and stem cells, then add our proprietary formula to further enhance the healing capability of the PRP.
At the site of your injury we inject a small amount of lidocaine, a very effective anesthetic. Then the PRP is injected. Our work is done and now your stem cells and platelets begin to do their job. Individuals vary and the injection sites are different but most patients will experience a mild sensation of stiffness due to the added fluid. This is usually gone in about two days. Over the next two weeks the platelets and stem cells do their job. This can augment the healing process 500-fold.
With shoulders, backs and knees, these bigger areas can require more than one session . There is no limit to the number of injections you can receive. We recommend sessions be spaced about a month apart. Most of our patients get substantial relief with three sessions.
What are the risks?
With any injection there is a potential for infection. PRP Therapy is not recommended for patients with bleeding disorders, those on anti-coagulants, those with cancers such as Leukemia or lymphoma and PRP should be avoided if you are pregnant.
For everyone else remember that we are using your platelets and your stem cells to enhance your own healing. There is no risk of rejection because your own healing cells are being used to heal you.
The results speak for themselves, so please review the testimonials from patients that Dr. Smith has treated. Their problems vary but their results are all amazing.
