Regenerative Medicine

such as growth factors, PRP or Stem cells. Regenerative medicine holds the promise of definitive, affordable health care solutions to promote the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints, and it can be applied to various musculoskeletal problems.

At our MSK Regenerative Medicine Clinic we use Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for wound and soft tissue healing, and are gearing up to introduce adipose derived regenerative cells for interventional treatment of injuries and pain. PRP injections are prepared from one or two tubes of the patient’s own blood with aseptic technique. After being centrifuged, the activated platelets are injected into the abnormal tissue, releasing growth factors that recruit and increase the proliferation of reparative cells. Ultrasound imaging may or may not be used to guide the injection.

Several recent clinical studies have demonstrated that PRP injections have improved function and decreased pain for various maladies, including - but not limited to - elbow, wrist, shoulder, hip, knee, and ankle Tendinosis. More recent work is also showing promise for early to moderate Osteoarthritis. The side effects of PRP injections are very limited as the patients are utilising their own blood, which they should have no reaction to. Some relative rest is needed immediately following the procedure, usually followed by a progressive stretching and strengthening program.
