Biologics

Biologics are genetically engineered proteins created from microorganisms, human, or animal genes. This technique is at the cutting edge of biomedical research and has been found to treat a number of medical issues including orthopedic conditions. Rather than using drugs to treat the entire immune system, biologics target specific areas for more efficient treatment.

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) is a non-operative treatment designed to relieve pain from orthopedic injuries including arthritis and ligament tears. PRP uses human blood separated to produce concentrated platelets which are then injected straight into the treatment area. These platelets which contain growth factor proteins are a crucial component to clotting blood and healing musculoskeletal conditions. Often used in athletic injuries, PCP is used to speed up the healing process and minimize pain.
