Restorative Healing Through Orthobiologics

What is Platelet Rich Plasma and Stem Cell Therapy?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell Therapy are forms of regenerative medicine that involve the body’s own natural healing capabilities. Your body’s platelets are drawn from your blood, or stem cells harvested from bone marrow, and then injected into your injured or chronically painful areas. The blood or bone marrow sample goes through a rapid spinning process in a centrifuge that separates and concentrates the platelets and other beneficial growth factors from the blood.  These injections have shown a decrease in inflammation, pain and the stimulation of healing and speediness in recovery for bone, muscle, joint and ligament, and soft tissue injuries.  Some common injuries treated with PRP include:

  • Achilles Tendinitis
  • Arthritic Joints
  • Acute and Chronic Tendon Problems
  • Chronic Lower Back Pain
  • Joint Fractures
  • Knee Osteoarthritis
  • Medical Collateral Ligament (MCL) Tears
  • Morton’s Neuroma
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Rotator Cuff Tears
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Tennis Elbow

For customized cellular concentrations of platelet rich plasma, Dayton Orthopaedic Surgery uses the Arthrex Angel System.
