Adult Stem Cell Therapy & Platelet Rich Plasma
In the past, patients with sports injuries had very few recovery options. They could experiment with basic at-home remedies or undergo risky surgeries that often failed to deliver the promised results. Now, thanks to the growing prevalence of stem cells, patients have the ability to accelerate their natural healing processes and escape their pain and suffering. It’s been a long time coming, but stem cells have finally emerged at the forefront of sports medicine.
At Bennett Orthopedics and Sportsmedicine in Sarasota, Florida, Dr. Bennett is proud to offer time-tested stem cell treatments, both alone and in conjunction with surgical procedures, that enhance and accelerate the natural healing process.
Why Stem Cells?
When used properly, stem cells have the potential to regenerate damaged tissues in a way that the body’s own repair process cannot. This means that harnessing stem cells to treat specific sports medicine injuries can help athletes and weekend warriors return to or even exceed their pre-injury performance without any pain.
Mesenchymal stem cells in particular offer immense potential for healing. They can be extracted from bone marrow, adipose tissue, synovial membrane, umbilical cord blood, and other sources, and they also have great flexibility as they differentiate. This is especially true when combined with scaffolds and growth factors that support and strengthen the actions of stem cells.
Don’t Forget PRP!
Stem cells aren’t the only substances derived from the body with vast healing potential. Platelet- rich plasma (PRP) shows great promise for sports medicine treatments based on recent studies. The concentrated platelets in PRP summon the exact stem cells needed to treat an existing injury. They also provide essential growth factors to stimulate differentiation and multiplication. This is why PRP has become a favorite treatment in sports medicine as well.
It is essential that athletes and weekend warriors receive stem cell and PRP treatments from a credible, highly trained, and experienced orthopedic surgeon who provides results-based services. Dr. Bennett and his team at Bennett Orthopedics and Sportsmedicine have been helping patients throughout the Sarasota, Venice, and Bradenton areas regain their comfort and range of motion with stem cells for years!
