- Posted on: Jan 15 2020
Regenerative medicine is at the forefront of orthopedic medicine and has been an area of care available at Orthopedic Associates of Long Island for many years. Ongoing and continued research helps support the reasons for offering this method of care at our facility. Patients find promising results and continued success when it comes to the function and pain levels of various conditions of the muscles. Regenerative medicine includes PRP therapy and BMAC therapy.
- PRP Therapy – PRP is short for “platelet-rich plasma.” This is an element of one’s blood that can be injected into other areas of the body to speed healing and recovery. PRP is used for patients struggling with chronic pain of the muscles and joints, or even for those interested in hair regrowth. At Orthopedic Associates of Long Island, patients can achieve results with their own plasma!
- BMAC Therapy – Another solution for patients is that of bone marrow aspirate concentrate, or BMAC. BMAC also harnesses the body’s natural healing properties but is harvested from a patient’s bone marrow instead of from their blood. BMAC has been used successfully for tissue regeneration.
