Regenerative Medicine Treatments

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is derived from your blood and works by activating the healing cascade in the tissue.  The procedure involves drawing 60 to 120cc of your blood, and using a specialized machine to separate the PRP component from the other components of the blood.  The PRP will be injected into your injured tissue with image guidance with the ultrasound or fluoroscopy.

 

Bone Marrow Cells (BMC)

Bone marrow contains abundant mesenchymal signaling cells (MSC) that trigger the healing and regenerative cascade in the tissues injected.  MSCs are obtained through a minimally invasive procedure at the Posterior Superior Iliac Spine (PSIS) of the pelvis with either ultrasound or fluoroscopic guidance.  These cells are more potent than PRP, and can be combined for higher yield of MSC.  The BMC is injected with ultrasound or fluoroscopic guidance to the injured tissue to activate the healing cascade.
