PRP


PRP in Tampa, Brandon, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Sarasota & Surrounding Regions

PRPPRP has gained a lot of attention in recent years for their usefulness in treating a host of bodily injuries and conditions. PRP, or platelet rich plasma, is often injected into damaged joints after injury to promote blood clotting and stimulate the natural repair response.

While PRP has been shown to be moderately successful in treating a range of joint conditions and injuries, such as labral tears, ACL tears, slap lesions, osteoarthritis and more, PRP is most useful in speeding the recovery in instances when joints would otherwise heal on their own in due time. For more severely damaged joints and chronic, debilitating conditions, PRP may not be the best option.

At Advanced Regenerative Orthopedics, we provide patients with knee injections that are far superior to standard PRP treatments. Unlike with PRP, our knee injections are meant to stimulate new tissue growth by delivering high quality, potent, cord blood stem cells to the damaged area.

Cord blood stem cells offer patients advantages not found in other stem cell sources, such as:

Improved Proliferation

Because they are younger and more potent than other types of stem cells, cord blood stem cells are better able to proliferate. This, in turn, means their effects are longer lasting and extend well beyond the date of injection.

Improved Differentiation

Cord blood stem cells are also better able to differentiate into a variety of cell types, which is why they are being used by more and more qualified orthopedic surgeons when treating joint damage.

Having successfully treated hundreds of patients throughout Tampa, Brandon, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Sarasota and the surrounding regions, we are uniquely equipped to provide you with the knee injections you need to improve your joint health.
