Regenerative Medicine for Patients in Tampa, Clearwater & St. Petersburg

regenerative medicineIf you are searching for a nonsurgical means of treatment for osteoarthritis, a sports injury, or another musculoskeletal condition, regenerative medicine may be a viable option for you. This form of reparative treatment is aimed at triggering your body’s own healing mechanisms, possibly helping torn articular cartilage, tendons, and ligaments to repair themselves without surgery. Platelet rich plasma therapy, also called PRP therapy, is one type of regenerative injection therapy that Tampa Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Group offers to patients in Tampa, Clearwater, St. Petersburg, and the surrounding areas.

The PRP injection procedure is fast and can be performed right in our orthopaedic joint clinic. We simply take the patient’s own blood, isolate the platelets, and then inject the platelets directly into the injured soft tissue. Platelets contain an extremely high concentration of growth factors, which help the body to regenerate the specialized cells needed for the healing of both acute and chronic injuries.

Common conditions that may respond to regenerative medicine include:

  • Meniscus injuries
  • ACL strains
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Rotator cuff tendonitis
  • Rotator cuff impingement
  • Labrum tears
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Tennis elbow
  • Golfer’s elbow
  • Patellar tendonitis
