Our orthopedic medical clinic is a family-run health and wellness center, offering comprehensive regenerative medicine treatments.

We have successfully used platelet-rich plasma therapy to provide all-natural pain relief to hundreds of patients. If you’re looking for cosmetic treatment, we also use PRP to restore your youthful glow.
Your blood is composed of more than just red and white blood cells. Blood consists of several building blocks and components, including plasma and platelets. Plasma is the blood component responsible for transporting cells throughout the bloodstream, and platelets are the cells that initiate tissue repair or clotting wherever tissue is damaged or injured throughout your body. Platelets also contain hundreds of small proteins, known as growth factors, responsible for initiating the repair process.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a regenerative procedure that utilizes your blood to create an injectable solution. The PRP injection contains an enhanced concentration of your platelets to maximize rejuvenation. During your appointment, we draw some of your blood to synthesize the injection. The prepared platelet-rich plasma is then reintroduced into your body at the target area, whether that’s the site of pain, your scalp for hair regrowth, or your face for plumping and wrinkle reduction.
Bioactive proteins and growth factors in this serum act as a catalyst for accelerating the healing process and regenerating tissue. PRP treatment generally consists of 3 to 5 treatments spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart. It is safe, and there’s a very low chance of rejection since the injection comes entirely from your blood. After treatments, there’s little downtime or discomfort.

PPR is an excellent, all-natural, non-surgical alternative to standard facelifts.

PRP is injected into key areas of your face, typically with natural fillers like Juvéderm, to restore a youthful, smooth appearance to the skin.
