Repair A Severely Damaged Elbow With Stem Cells And PRP
The U.S. Open has just begun and New York is buzzing with excitement. Fan favorites Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal are on a collision course to play each other and Maria Sharapova is now allowed to play after her steroid scandal.
The elbow is one of the most vulnerable body parts in tennis due to the constant repetition of swinging. Tennis players that suffer elbow injuries are turning more and more to Platelet Rich Plasma and Stem Cell Therapy to non-surgically repair their elbow injuries.
If you are suffering from an elbow injury, you may want to learn about these therapies to accelerate the healing process. Stem Cell Therapy and Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy have high success rates to repair elbow injuries such as Tennis elbow, Golfer’s elbow, a UCL injury, and others.
Non-Surgical Elbow Treatment
The benefits of these treatments is that they only use the body’s own healing properties and apply them to tissue damage in the elbow. Whether its ligament, tendon, or muscle damage, both therapies physically repair damaged cell tissue and doing so, accelerate the recovery of the elbow. This helps our patients experience significant less pain and regain their range of motion eventually and often healing the injury completely. It is possible to avoid elbow surgery for various injuries using Stem Cell and Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy.
Dr. Benjamin Bieber, M.D. will first examine your elbow during a consultation visit and determine which treatment will be best for healing your injury. He may apply Stem Cell Therapy, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy, or a combination of both. Both treatments are safe and applied through a non-surgical injection technique.
During Stem Cell Therapy, stem cells from either bone marrow or fat tissue are harvested and then immediately applied to the elbow. Stem cells are able to transform into healthy cell tissue and physically replace damaged elbow tissue. This new healthy tissue allows the elbow to heal and regain full range of motion.
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy applies the platelets found in the blood to heal damaged tissue. These platelets are one of the most important healing properties of the blood. In PRP Therapy, platelets are harvested during a blood sample and then concentrated to form a dense platelet rich plasma or PRP. This PRP is then injected into the elbow fostering and stimulating a renewed healing process. PRP contains over 30 growth factors to actively heal damaged tissue.
Stem Cell Therapy and Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy for elbow injuries are being used by professional athletes world-wide. If you have an elbow injury, you can schedule a consultation with Dr. Bieber.
