PRP & Stem Cell Therapy Patient Education

Stem cell therapy is a minimally invasive, same-day, non-surgical procedure that is done in an office-based setting. TOCA is among a select group of orthopedic practices that have physicians fellowship-trained in regenerative procedures

A stem cell is a cell that has the ability to differentiate into different cell types.  Bone marrow derived stem cells are mesenchymal stem cells that can differentiate into soft tissues including muscle, tendon and cartilage that are most relevant to orthopedic issues.  Stem cells sit at the center of a growing field of medicine called regenerative medicine.  Regenerative medicine aims to use the body’s own natural healing systems to repair damage, decrease pain and improve function.
