Lipogems® and Platelet Rich Plasma Procedures (PRP) treatments for Foot and Ankle Pain
Lipogems® Platelet Rich Plasma Procedures are some of the world’s most advanced regenerative injection treatments for treating knee pain, caused by:
- Sports injuries
- Other degenerative conditions
Before you consider ankle surgery, fusion or replacement, consider the world’s leading stem cell and PRP injection treatments.
Current surgical treatment options for common injuries and arthritis, include ankle arthroscopy to “clean up” damaged cartilage, fusion of ankle bones where cartilage has been lost, and tendon grafts screwed in place to strengthen loose connections between bones. All are painful and may not be effective in the long run. These surgeries typically involve a painful post surgical recovery with a lengthy rehab period to restore strength and mobility to the ankle.
Stem cells are simply your own body cells that can renew themselves and turn into other cells (differentiate). They live inside all of us in various tissues; their job is to repair damage as it occurs. We all know when we have a cut or injury our body repairs itself. As we age or experience big injuries, we may not be able to recruit enough of these cells to the site to fully repair the area.
The Lipogems procedure helps overcome this problem by extracting your own cells from an area of high volume, then concentrating the cells and re-injecting them into the damaged area to help the body heal naturally.
This procedure can be used for a wide range of conditions and are the tool of choice for injuries, arthritis and other conditions that may be more significant than what may be treated with our Platelet Rich Plasma or Platelet Lysate Procedures.
Blood Platelet treatments (PRP)
PRP injection Treatments contain healing growth components from your own blood that increase your body’s natural ability to repair itself.
The use of PRP to repair joint, tendon, ligament, and muscle injuries is becoming well known, thanks to exposure from professional athletes.
Platelet injection treatments are effective because they have a stimulating effect on the stem cells within the targeted area, making those stem cells work harder to heal damaged tissues.
Our Advanced Platelet Procedures are more pure and concentrated than those created by the automated machines used at most regenerative medicine clinics. Platelet procedures are commonly used for soft tissue injuries, mild arthritis and spine conditions.
