What is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative Medicine is the field of medicine encompassing Stem Cell Science, Biologics, Growth Factors, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), and Tissue Engineering.
Regenerative Medicine includes a vast array of scientific knowledge and research. It covers orthopedic pains, degenerative arthritis, Sports Medicine, to even regrowing body parts.
Dr. Syed is an expert in stem cell therapy and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for joint pain, arthritis, avascular necrosis (AVN), sports, and musculoskeletal injuries. If you are looking for an alternative to hip, knee, back or other total replacement surgery, consider consulting with Dr Syed.
Dr Syed is devoted to the science of Regenerative Medicine and it’s potential to help you live pain free without needing major surgery. This passion is fueled by his desire to deliver the best medical care and knowledge to his patients. Every patient has different lifestyles, diets, and goals. Dr. Syed tailors his regenerative treatments to each individual patient to provide the highest quality care.
What is the difference between RPR and Stem Cells?
The simple answer of PRP vs Stem Cells is PRP is obtained from your blood and is a concentrated source of platelets whereas Stem Cells come from bone marrow. Platelets have growth factors which can aid in healing. Stem Cells work by having the potential to become any kind of cell and can replace old worn down tissue.
Bone marrow aspirate (BMA) is fluid that contains many stem cells and molecules that can stimulate healing and regeneration of injured tissues, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Stem cells are sort of a blank slate, ready and able to accept any chemical orders to begin their task of repairing the body. Stem Cells which come from BMA are from your own body and are 100% natural. It is also possible to get Stem Cells from other sources such as amniotic fluid. Whether you are an elite athlete or a “Weekend Warrior” regenerative therapy, including Stem Cells, are effective and safe non-surgical treatment for acute and chronic pain.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is super-physiologically concentrated platelets and growth factors that stimulate healing and regeneration of injured tissues, muscles, tendons or ligaments. PRP is derived from your own blood and is also 100% natural. PRP injections are an increasingly popular alternative to surgery because of the great results patients of all ages are obtaining. Whether you are an elite athlete or a “Weekend Warrior,” regenerative therapies, including PRP, are an effective and safe nonsurgical therapy to treat forms of acute and chronic pain.
