Limited blood supply is prohibitive of healing, because healing demands a large and consistent supply of building blocks and removal of waste products. Injections of concentrated platelets promote healing by supplying the region with the critical growth factors and…

Platelet Rich Plasma Advancements

When you are wounded, platelets immediately respond, clumping and activating an army of healing factors to help form a clot. The environment surrounding a blood clot is rich with substances that promote healing and stimulate cellular growth. These substances, or growth factors, are released by the activated platelets, and play a critical role in healing the wound where the clot resides. Growth factors can facilitate new bone growth, accelerate angiogenesis, and promote soft tissue healing (source: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com ). Administration of Platelet…

What Is Regenerative Medicine?

While medical treatments are advancing at a rapid pace, our aging population challenges the prevailing palliative treatments.  In many cases, a diseased organ is treated with medication or surgically removed, but rarely is it repaired.  Enter regenerative medicine (Watch Regenerative Medicine Video), the interdisciplinary science that regenerates damaged tissues and organs in vivo (in the living body), or in vitro (in the laboratory),after which it is transplanted back into the body to restore function.  Regenerative medicine’s focus is on functional tissue restoration, as opposed…
