22 Dec Advantages of Regenerative Medicine over Musculoskeletal Surgery
Surgeries have been a big part of traditional medicine for decades. Millions of lives have been saved through the timely intervention of skilled surgeons. But there are many risks associated with even minor surgical procedures. The incision could get infected, a blood vessel could get in the way, and there is also the risk of anesthesia allergies.
In addition, recovering from surgeries usually takes a considerable period. For some people staying inactive for several days or weeks is not a viable option. As a result of all these, many people prefer to avoid surgeries, especially people with underlying medical conditions.
Fortunately, regenerative procedures present a safe and non-invasive method of treating pain without facing all the risks of surgeries. Regenerative procedures such as stem cell therapy and platelet-rich therapy offer you the possibility of repairing torn and damaged tendons, ligaments, muscles, discs, and more without going under the knife.
These procedures use the body’s natural repair mechanisms to facilitate the growth and repair of damaged cells and tissues. These new cells and tissues facilitate the repair of affected body parts and organs. Our PRP treatment Arizona and Phoenix stem cell treatment centers are specifically set up to help patients like you avoid surgeries and other traditional treatment methods that only manage disorders without treating the underlying cause.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
Platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) is one of the most popular regenerative procedures. Our experienced PRP therapy doctors treat torn or damaged tendons, ligaments, joints, and other body tissues using this simple regenerative procedure. Whether the condition is from an injury, an underlying medical condition, or age-related, this simple therapy can provide a way out from the pain.
PRP therapy uses platelets that are extracted from your own blood and injected directly into the affected part. The process is quite simple. The doctors collect a small sample of your blood and take it through some processes to extract other components, except for the plasma (the liquid part of your blood) and platelets. Before the procedure, your doctor may administer some drugs to increase your platelets.
Patients with painful conditions, such as arthritis, tendonitis, torn ligaments, and chronic injuries can benefit from PRP therapy. Platelets are rich in growth factors that spur the regeneration of tissues that can repair the damage.
Stem Cell Therapy
Currently, the most common regenerative procedure available, stem cell therapy, is effective in the treatment of many disorders. Like PRP therapy, stem cell therapy uses substances that are readily available in your body. Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that can form other cell types and encourage the repair and regrowth of bones, tendons, muscles, and cartilages.
Stem cell treatments in our Phoenix stem cell treatment centers are minimally-invasive, outpatient procedures that can help you avoid expensive and risky surgeries while enjoying a pain-free life. The procedure is simple and easy. All you will feel is a small pinch of the injection, and the stem cells will immediately get to work on the affected parts.
Many medical conditions qualify for regenerative procedures, such as stem cell therapy and PRP therapy. If you are not certain if yours will, please book an appointment by calling (844) GET-STEM with our experienced stem cell doctors or use the chat button to begin.
