PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) and orthobiologics are advanced treatments in regenerative medicine that harness the body’s natural healing mechanisms to promote tissue repair and regeneration.
PRP therapy involves extracting a concentrated solution of platelets from your own blood. Platelets are rich in growth factors and other bioactive proteins that play a key role in tissue healing. The extracted platelet-rich plasma is then injected into the affected area, stimulating the body’s natural healing response and promoting tissue regeneration. PRP therapy is commonly used to treat conditions such as tendon injuries, osteoarthritis, and ligament damage.
Orthobiologics encompass a range of treatments that utilize biological substances, such as stem cells, growth factors, or scaffolds, to enhance tissue regeneration and healing. This involves using your body’s own cells or donor-derived cells to aid in tissue repair and regeneration. Growth factors, such as proteins or cytokines, can be used to stimulate cell growth and promote tissue healing. These orthobiologic treatments are often used in orthopedics to support tissue repair, reduce pain, and improve overall function.
Both PRP and orthobiologics treatments offer non-surgical alternatives for patients seeking to address orthopedic conditions and injuries. These innovative therapies aim to optimize healing potential, alleviate pain, and improve long-term outcomes by leveraging the body’s own regenerative capacity.
