What is PRP and Stem Cell Therapy? The Difference

Have you ever wondered, if there is an easier way to get healed? We are often more scared with the traumatic healing process rather than the actual disease that we are having. Why is that? And is there actually a better way to avoid the unnecessary painful healing process (surgery, blood loss)?

 

Science, especially medical science has boomed in the last decade. And the new Regenerative Medicare, is the cutting edge new brainchild of modern medical science. Regenerative Method, also known as “self-healing” process is considered the next big thing in the modern medical industry.  It’s a self-healing process which will heal you using your own healing power, not with the help of any oral medicines, steroids or surgery. So what is this Regenerative Medicare? More importantly, what is PRP and Stem Cell Therapy and what is the difference?

What is PRP Therapy?

Injectable platelet therapy and stem cell had been used for more than 20 years for a wide variety of medical treatments including oral surgery, dentistry and skin care. In recent times, its application has extended to sports medicine, cardiovascular surgery, and cosmetic surgery. The safety of injectable platelets and growth factors has been well established in the medical literature.

 

You may have heard that platelet-rich plasma has been used to treat both professional and nonprofessional athletes for years, but what is it? When a tendon or ligament is injured, incomplete healing may occur. This can lead to chronic pain or a loss of function.

Stem cells

are undifferentiated biological cells that can differentiate into specialized cells and can divide (through mitosis) to produce more stem cells.

There are three known accessible sources of autologous adult stem cells in humans:

  1. Bone marrow, which requires extraction by harvesting, that is, drilling into bone (typically the femur or iliac crest).
  2. Adipose tissue (lipid cells), which requires extraction by liposuction.
  3. Blood, which requires extraction through apheresis, wherein blood is drawn from the donor (similar to a blood donation), and passed through a machine that extracts the stem cells and returns other portions of the blood to the donor.

 

Adult stem cells, also called somatic stem cells, are stem cells which maintain and repair the tissue in which they are found. They can be found in children, as well as adults. Most adult stem cells are lineage-restricted (multipotent) and are generally referred to by their tissue origin. Adult stem cell treatments have been successfully used for many years to treat leukemia and related bone/blood cancers through bone marrow transplants. Adult stem cells are also used in regenerative medicine to treat tendon and ligament injuries in muscle, joint and cosmetology.

Why PRP and Stem Cell, Why not Surgery?

 

For a long time, in fact from the development of medical science which goes way back in history, surgery is an established way of treatment. For any serious condition in our body, we have a tendency to either move towards oral or other kind of medicines, or if not cured properly, go for surgery. Although surgery does not always assure full recovery, it is one of the most reliable places for people to keep their faith.

In almost every surgery, there is a lot of risks. On top of that, the recovery process is very healthy and hectic, and the added expense, it is not always an ideal option.

Is Regenerative Method the ideal replacement of Surgery? Let’s find out.

In Regenerative Method, there is

– NO chance of foreign contamination (as the healing agent is produced from patient’s own body cells)

  • NO excessive blood loss.
  • NO painful SURGERY!!!

So you see, this method is the futuristic replacement of the age old conventional healing method.
