Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy and Stem Cell Therapy Options

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy and Stem Cell Therapy options are grouped together as regenerative therapy options. This is one of the hottest topics in medicine because it allows the body to repair itself. Our own blood or bone marrow are able to heal almost any problem in the body. By concentrating the growth factors, stem cells and healing cells of the body and injecting them into the affected region of tissue damage, the body begins to proliferate additional healing cells resulting in a healing cascade in the region of damage. What is most beneficial about such procedures is that your own body will heal itself. No outside material is injected. The only exception to this is the use of amniotic stem cell therapy. In these cases, "young" amniotic stem cells are injected into the damaged tissue and "rev up" the bodies healing of the region.

The Achilles Institute is at the forefront of Stem cell therapy and PRP therapy for injuries and tendon damage. We have taught doctors, lectured worldwide and educated numerous surgeons on the advantages of PRP and Stem Cell Therapy in foot and ankle care. We have performed over 2000 Stem Cell and PPR injections with exceptional experience and results.
