PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
Platelet rich plasma is the patients own blood plasma that contains an increased concentration of platelets in it. Why is this important? Platelets are an important part of the healing process. PRP has recently emerged as a promising new treatment for a variety of tissue problems and has gained publicity from being used with professional athletes.
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.
