Regenerative Medicine

Othrobiologic or regenerative medicine uses your body's own cells and proteins to help the body heal.

Not all PRP is the same

We use the highest quality EmCyte PurePRP systems to customize your PRP treatment to your specific condition.

Platelet rich plasma (PRP)

Platelets, found in the bloodstream, serve as carriers for chemical signals that trigger the body’s healing mechanisms. In the event of an injury, platelets migrate to the affected region and release these chemical signals, intensifying the healing response.

In cases of chronic injuries affecting tendons, ligaments, and joints, this healing process can stall leading to disordered healing and chronic pain. The concentration and re-injection of your own platelets, known as PRP, can replicate this healing response and prove highly effective in treating specific conditions.

If PRP is indicated we take a sample of the patient’s blood and process it in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets. The PRP is then injected directly into the damaged area using ultrasound guidance to ensure the treatment is most effective. The procedure takes less than an hour and is done in the office.

Conditions most effectively treated with PRP

  • ¬†Mild to moderate arthritis

  • ¬†Chronic tendon pain (tendonitis or chronic sprains and tears)

Appropriate rest and rehabilitation are essential to a good outcome. The team at HDSS provide a rehabilitation protocol, supplement recommendations, and work closely with your physical therapist to guide your post procedure rehabilitation to ensure the best possible outcome.
