Stem Cell and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments use your body’s own healing mechanisms to regenerate tissues in injured areas to restore or establish normal function. We employ Biologics—a customized spectrum of concentrated cells, including stem cells, from your own body. We precisely target the injured and affected area of the body to boost natural healing and regeneration, speeding recovery.
Stem Cell Injections
Adult stem cells are cells from your own body that are an essential component of the healing process. We know areas of the body where more stem cells occur—in fat and bone marrow, for example. We are able to harvest these cells from your own tissues or from ethically gathered umbilical tissue and direct them with exact precision to an injured area.
Blood Platelet Rich Plasma Injections
Used in maxillofacial and plastic surgery since the early 1980s, this technique is routinely employed in the treatment of professional athletes. We draw your own blood and concentrate the platelets to 4 to 5 times beyond normal and inject them into injured areas to promote healing.
NSAIDs Prevent Healing
For years, the medical establishment has put an emphasis on reducing inflammation and employed liberal use of anti-inflammatory drugs, typically NSAID drugs like ibuprofen and naproxen or steroids. We now know that inhibiting your body’s natural inflammatory response prevents repair cells from reaching your injury. Reliance on NSAIDs can actually cause injury by masking pain and allowing you further damage injured tissues. Our targeted biologic treatments are designed to do the opposite of overused NSAIDs. These treatments don't block inflammation instead they provoke a healing inflammatory response to increase the number of repair cells in the injured area.

The components for our biologic treatments are gathered from your own body. We extract them in safe, out-patient procedure and re-apply them in concentration to the injured area.
The procedures are safe enough to perform in an out-patient setting. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), for example, involves simply drawing blood and concentrating the platelets in a centrifuge.
Back In Motion
Results for most treatments improve if activity and motion are resumed early, compared with surgical options which require immobilization often for weeks or months hampering recovery significantly.
Less overall impact
Compared to surgery, recovery time is negligible. Additionally, there is no scarring and the costs are much lower. Patients will experience some increase in pain but it will diminish quickly and recovery happens much faster.
