Regenerative Medicine

Stem Cell Therapy & PRP Injections

The Steadman Clinic surgeons are leaders in the field of regenerative medicine. There are two types that are used to help heal injuries, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and bone marrow cell concentrate (BMCC).
 
PRP uses the patient’s blood to trigger the body to begin healing the injured area. The body’s natural response to an injury is to release platelets and white blood cells from the blood to begin the healing, although with modern technology, surgeons are able to concentrate this process and inject the PRP directly into the injured tissue.
 
BMCC is similar to PRP in that surgeons are utilizing the body's own healing properties to enhance the process. BMCC uses bone marrow from the hip region which contains stem cells that increase the regenerative process even more than PRP.  
 
The Steadman Philippon Research Institute has completed studies on regenerative medicine if you thirst for more.
