PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
Platelet rich plasma has emerged as a promising new treatment for a variety of tissue problems. PRP has gained publicity after being used with professional athletes. It consists of the patient's own blood plasma which is minimally processed, and can be administered in the office.
Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cells are cells that can self-renew and differentiate into other cells. There are a variety of cell types that have these abilities, and cell types that most people are referring to are "progenitor" cells. Stem cell therapy has recently generated a lot of interest and has a lot of potential, but research has not yet shown us exactly how to capture the power of this potentially benificial technology and as a result, research has not proven how to maximize efficacy.
dHACM is a tissue allograft that stimulates wound healing and tissue repair. It is primarily used to treat chronic wounds. As more studies are done to prove the efficacy of this new technology, dHACM may be used more in clinical settings.
