Orthopedic PRP & Stem Cell Therapy

Cross Bay PMR uses cutting-edge Stem Cell Therapy, which includes the famed Fat Derived Stem Cells and or Bone Marrow Derived Stem Cells and Pure Platelet Rich Plasma (PPRP) Combination Therapy, to treat a wide range of painful tendon and joint conditions.  Stem Cell Therapy aims at rehabilitating tendon and joint conditions by correcting the injured area, repairing damaged or diseased tissue, and creating healthy tissue that not only alleviates pain and increases flexibility and movement but also serves as a safe and viable alternative to surgery.  By implementing either PPRP or Stem Cell Therapy or a combination of both, it is possible to eliminate severe and chronic medical conditions.     

What is Pure Platelet Rich Plasma?

Pure Platelet Rich Plasma is the process of using one’s own body, via the growth factors and healing cells inside one’s blood, to prompt spontaneous healing of damaged or injured sites in the body.  Using modern medicine, we create an organic plasma containing greater than 30 growth factors and healing cells that are then injected, non-surgically, into the injured area.  An advantageous recovery process then ensues, where unhealthy tissue is repaired and new healthy tissue forms in the joint such that the joint or tendon can again function well and pain free.   

What is Stem Cell Therapy?

Stem Cell Therapy is the use of stem cells gotten from either your fat tissue from your belly or from bone marrow from your iliac crest. These stem cells are harvested (gotten) thru a needle size hole in either your belly or your back which doesn't even need a stich or suture to close. These stem cells are than placed into a bidirectional centrifuge and separated from its parent tissue (fat or bone marrow tissue). This process causes the stem cells to be greatly concentrated so they add a great healing boost once injected into your injured or arthritic area. Once the stem cells are separated and concentrated the stem cells are combined with pure platelet rich plasma and injected via the guidance of ultrasound to the exact locations of your damaged joints, tendons and ligaments.
