Perhaps no other area of medicine is receiving as much attention today as that of regenerative medicine — using tissue engineering and molecular biology to create living, functional tissues to repair or replace tissue or organ function lost due to age, disease, damage, or congenital defects. Many types of regenerative medicine are autologous, meaning they use your body’s own resources, obtaining cells or tissues from one area that are then injected into the affected area of your body to stimulate regeneration of damaged tissue and promote the healing of ligaments, joints, tendons, or spinal discs.

Orthopaedic experts use PRP Therapy for orthopaedic healing in Dayton

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is one such regenerative medicine treatment that is used in orthopaedic care. In PRP, your blood is drawn, spun in a centrifuge to render a concentration of platelet cells, and then injected into your body to aid in the healing of chronic lower back, hip, knee, elbow, shoulder, foot, and ankle injuries. It is especially effective in treating chronic tendon injuries like tennis elbow.
