Why Use Stem Cells and PRP?
Stem cell transplant
Stem cells and PRP are two of the safest and most advanced approaches for treating a wide variety of injuries and diseases, such as labral tears, rotator cuff tears,
and hip bursitis
within the human body. Under the stem cell approach, the stem cells that promote musculoskeletal healing (mainly cartilage, tendons and bones), found in the bone marrow, are extracted, processed and injected into the affected area.
Both of these non-surgical treatment options are effective and budget-friendly. Administration of PRP or stem cells only takes a matter of minutes and visible improvement in knee joint movement and reduction in pain can be observed within the first few days.
Patients recovering from meniscus tear
are able to quickly recover when injected with PRP, compared to the lengthy and exhaustive period of post-surgical rehabilitation. PRP and stem cell patients are more likely to exhibit greater mobility and experience less knee pain than surgical patients. Furthermore, the treatment requires extracting cells from the patient’s body and reinserting them into another part of the body - rendering it safe, reliable and free from contagious infections.
