Regenerative Orthopedics


Regenerative orthopaedics is a subspecialty of regenerative medicine that focuses on regeneration of lost tissue, acceleration of healing, and pain relief to treat orthopaedic conditions such as osteoarthritis, tendonitis, low back pain, joint injuries, ligament injuries, sprains and strains etc.

Regenerative orthopaedics uses:

  • Stem cells: Undifferentiated cells that can transform into any type of tissue. These are usually obtained from the bone marrow or fat.
  • Platelets: Platelets obtained from blood that help activate stem cells
  • Growth factors: Proteins obtained from blood that are essential for tissue repair and regeneration

Some of the conditions that can be treated with regenerative orthopaedics include many common conditions such as osteoarthritis (degenerative arthritis), low back pain, strains and sprains, nerve injuries, and tendon and ligament tears.

Regenerative orthopaedics is used to avoid or delay surgery, accelerate healing after surgery or injury, or when surgery or other therapies have failed. Recovery after treatment is quick and you may return to normal activities in 72 hours and to sports in 2 weeks.

Our blood consists of a liquid component known as plasma. It also consists of three main solid components which include the red blood cells (RBCs), white blood cells (WBCs), and platelets. Platelets play an important role in forming blood clots. They also consist of special proteins, known as growth factors, which help with our body's healing process.

Platelet-rich plasma or PRP is a high concentration of platelets and plasma. A normal blood specimen contains only 6% platelets, while platelet-rich plasma contains 94% of platelets and 5 to 10 times the concentration of growth factors found in normal blood, thus greater healing properties.

PRP is a relatively new method of treatment for several orthopaedic conditions such as muscle, ligament, and tendon injuries; arthritis; and fractures. PRP injections can help alleviate painful symptoms, promote healing and delay joint replacement surgeries.
