The Joyce Family Medical is now primarily offering two regenerative medical solutions known as Mesenchymal Stem cell injections and Platelet Rich Plasma Injections.
Stem cells are the wellspring from which all other cells of the body develop. What is unique about stem cells is the “differentiation.” This means that they can become whatever type of cell the body needs. Cells have no specific function other than to become the cells of muscles, bones, cartilage, brain, nervous system, blood and more.
All stem cells have 2 minimum qualities. The first being that they are renewable which means they undergo mitosis and have the potential to double. The second quality is they have potency, which is defined as the ability to differentiate into any cell in the body.
We all have stem cells that live inside us; they act as the repairmen of the body. As we age or have big injuries, we may not be able to get enough of these cells to that specific area to fully repair what is damaged.
All of our therapy stem cells are from exclusively accredited scientific company/ tissue bank. Once the stem cells are injected, they rush to the area or areas of the body in need of repair or re-growth. This type of treatment has been shown to give better results then surgery.
Below are some listed treatments already in practice today, but are not limited to:
Our office primarily focuses on the knees and hips for stem cell therapy.
Platelet Rich Plasma injection treatments also known as PRP contain healing growth components from your own blood that increase your body’s natural ability to repair itself. PRP typically contains 3-8 times the concentration of normal platelet levels. The primary purpose of plasma is to transport those nutrients, hormones and proteins to the parts of the body that need it. It also contains many different growth factors that can stimulate healing of soft tissue such as ligaments, muscles and tendons.
PRP starts by drawing blood from the patient and using a special blood collection tube that contains anticoagulant and a polyester gel.
When being processed in the centrifuge, the red blood cells are trapped beneath the gel separation layer and the concentrated platelets are captured above it.
Those platelets are then extracted into a syringe and injected into the damaged/ injured area or spots for anti- aging treatment.
The PRP treatment has been shown safe and effective in treating the following:
Our office primarily focuses on the knee, hips & shoulders.
