Cell-based therapy treats orthopedic joints and injuries, muscular injuries, wounds, ligament injuries, arthritis, back pain, along with reversing anti-aging and cosmetic enhancement.

What is Platelet Rich Plasma? (PRP)
Platelet-rich plasma is a blood component that has been enriched with platelets. The PRP contains rich in autologous growth factors and cytokines that can help stimulate healing of bone and soft tissue in the body.
Platelets are an integral part of your blood that contains a high concentration of bioactive proteins, especially growth factors, that initiate a signal conduction cascade, which in turn stimulates your body’s natural healing process in order to repair damaged tissue. Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP treatment is your body’s natural healing process, however much more concentrated.
The concept of this treatment is that PRP not only stimulates but also aids the body’s natural healing response of damaged tissue. PRP accelerates the process of recruitment of necessary bioactive proteins to the damaged area and allows for the creation and maturation of collagen fibers to strengthen the tendons and ligament of the damaged site.
