Regenerative medicine is a scientific and medical discipline which focuses on harnessing the power of stem cells and the regenerative capacity of the body in order to restore the functioning of damaged cells, tissues and organs. The goal of regenerative medicine is to find the path to cure previously untreated injuries and diseases.
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a treatment used to promote healing in injured joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons. It is frequently used in athletes and active individuals who wish to return to their sport or activity quickly. It may also be used in individuals who wish to avoid surgery or augment their healing after surgery.
Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that have the unique ability to differentiate into certain types of tissues and self-renew. Stem cells can be of two types, embryonic stem cells or adult stem cells. Embryonic stem cells can differentiate into any cell of the body and adult stem cells have the ability to differentiate into specific types of cells.
