Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a treatment of concentrated platelets and serum. Platelets are a type of blood cells that contain growth factors and facilitate healing by stimulating tissue regeneration in the treatment area. PRP treatment is often used to support wound healing in trauma and joint injury.
Stem cells can be collected from blood, fat, and bone marrow. These cells help facilitate the growth of specific cells that will promote the regrowth or repair of damaged tissue. When combined with PRP, stem cell injections are an effective form of regenerative medicine, leveraging the body’s natural healing capabilities to grow, repair, or replace tissue.
PRP and stem cell injections can help treat conditions affecting the spine, shoulders, knees, hips, and joints, and to alleviate pain. Patients experiencing pain should call the South Coast Specialty Surgery Center to find out if they can benefit from PRP and stem cell therapy. The South Coast Specialty Surgery Center has an onsite lab and lab director overseeing this treatment and our team of healthcare practitioners are here to answer any questions or concerns patients may have about this form of regenerative medicine.
