Biological Therapies In Orthopaedics
Types of Biological treatment
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
PRP injections is a autologous biological therapy that involves subtracting a patient’s blood and processing it to separate the plasma and cells which are then combined with protein, growth factor and other key vitamins that will stimulate the increase in white blood cells and induce faster healing. Centrifugation is accomplished with closed 4th generation systems which eliminates the risk of infections.
PRP injections are a treatment for aiding the regeneration of ligament and tendon injuries, connective tissue repair, and wound healing. The components used for the treatment are extracted from the patient’s own blood, making the procedure safe, which lasts 30-40 minutes in our office.
Stem cells – BMA (Bone Marrow Aspirate)
The use of bone marrow in clinical applications of regenerative medicine is based on the fact that the contents of the BMA (ancestral and nucleated stem cells, platelets, lymphocytes, cytokines, etc.) support the regeneration processes of tissues.
The application of biological bone marrow treatments can offer solutions to multiple musculoskeletal pathologies.

Combination of Biological Therapy and Minimal Invasive Surgery
Biological treatment as mentioned above can be combined with common Orthopaedic procedures which can add much benefit for the patient.
