Stem Cell Treatment
Stem Cell Treatment for Patients in Tampa, Clearwater, St. Petersburg, Sarasota, Lakeland & Neighboring Areas
Those who have suffered from chronic joint pain may have considered stem cell treatment and/or PRP to alleviate their symptoms. However, these two treatment methods are not equal, and their benefits and drawbacks should be carefully considered prior to undergoing any treatments.
PRP, or platelet rich plasma, is being used more and more frequently to treat a broad range of joint injuries and conditions. Because healing is dependent on the presence of platelets, it makes sense to assume that injecting PRP into a damaged joint will promote healing. Doing so does, in fact, assist the healing process by helping the injured area to quickly clot. They also jump start the natural repair response within the damaged joint itself. However, PRP will not generate the new tissue needed to complete recovery and should be used only in instances when injuries are likely to heal on their own to speed the onset of recovery.
Stem Cell Treatment
Stem cell therapy can also promote healing and speed recovery times. However, stem cell treatments can also promote new tissue growth by delivering new stem cells to the damaged joint. Most effective when cord blood stem cells are used, stem cell therapy can help restore your joint using minimally-invasive techniques under the direct supervision of a highly qualified orthopedic physician.
At Advanced Regenerative Orthopedics, we utilize only the finest quality cord blood stem cells that are ethically sourced from a reputable FDA registered facility to ensure our patients safety and recovery is kept top-of-mind. These younger and more potent cord blood stem cells have been shown to have improved proliferation and differentiation capabilities making them the ideal resource for promoting long-term tissue growth.
