Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

PRP is as the name infers, a concentrated solution of the animal’s own platelets that is used to treat a number of conditions. In our process, blood is aseptically collected and by a two-step centrifugation process the platelets are concentrated in the final solution. The platelets are then activated by a chemical process and by LED light stimulation which releases the potent chemicals from within the platelets. PRP is often used to treat osteoarthritis, degenerative joint disease, ligament and tendon injuries and wounds.

Autologous Conditioned Serum (ACS)

ACS is a regenerative therapy that utilizes potent anti-inflammatory proteins from specific white blood cells. In our process, 500 ml of whole blood is aseptically collected and at our laboratory the blood is stimulated to proliferate monocytes. These cells contain a potent anti-inflammatory protein that can be injected into joint tendons, ligaments, and muscle to block the inflammatory reaction.

Adipose Derived Stem Cells (ADSC)

Adipose tissue (fat) contains a remarkable number of stem cells which can be used to accelerate healing in many different tissues. We use a process to harvest stem cells from fat that only takes a few hours to complete. These stem cells are then diluted in PRP to activate the cells. The cells are further activated by the use of specific stimulatory lights. At that point the cells can be injected directly into the lesion or intravenously injected.
