AREAS OF FOCUSPlatelet Rich Plasma (PRP) extracts growth factors from your own blood that can then be delivered to poorly healing areas. Areas treated may include the neck, lower back, shoulder, knee, elbow, foot, and ankle. Your blood is drawn, processed, and the platelet rich fraction is injected into the injured site. The whole process takes less than one hour. You may experience between 2-5 days of soreness after treatment, and use of anti-inflammatory medications is not advised during the course of treatment. Depending on the specific problem, multiple treatments may be required. This treatment is done on an outpatient basis.
Stem Cell Therapy is the use of stem cells to treat or prevent a disease or condition. Our physicians specialize in assisting patients with joint pain in areas such as shoulders, knees, elbows, feet, ankles and elbows. Previously, these conditions were treated though physical therapy, pain medication, steroid injections or surgery.
