Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a cutting-edge, non-surgical orthopedic treatment that can be used to treat a variety of injuries, including tendonitis, ligament sprains, and muscle strains.
PRP is made from a sample of your own blood, which is then injected into the injured area. The platelets in the PRP help to stimulate your body's natural healing process and reduce inflammation.
At Sports Medicine & Joint Replacement Specialists, our team is proud to offer PRP therapy to our patients, potentially allowing them to access an effective alternative to invasive surgery.
Like platelet-rich plasma, stem cell therapy is an innovative technique that involves using your own (autologous) cells to stimulate your body's healing process.
However, stem cells are more versatile than PRP, as they have the ability to differentiate into various cell types. This means that stem cells can be used to treat a wide range of injuries, including cartilage damage, ligament damage, and tendonitis.
At Sports Medicine & Joint Replacement Specialists, we offer stem cell therapy to our patients as a potential alternative to surgery.
Ultrasound-guided injections are a type of injection that uses ultrasound technology to help the doctor place the needle in the precise location. This is important because it ensures that the medication is injected into the right area, which can help to improve the effectiveness of the treatment. With an ultrasound-guided injection, hip and knee treatment can be all the more accurate.
At Sports Medicine & Joint Replacement Specialists, we offer ultrasound-guided injections to our patients as a potential alternative to surgery.
