Joint Preservation Treatments
Joint preservation is an essential aspect of orthopedic medicine. It involves various techniques and therapies aimed at preserving or restoring joint function and preventing joint damage. One of the innovative and effective ways of joint preservation is the use of stem cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. These techniques can help to repair damaged tissues and prevent the need for more invasive treatments like joint replacement surgery.
SVF therapy involves the use of stem cells derived from the patient’s adipose tissue, also known as fat. Adipose tissue is a rich source of stem cells, and by harvesting them from the patient’s own body, there is no risk of rejection or allergic reactions. The stem cells are processed to create an injectable solution that can be used to promote the regeneration of damaged tissues, reduce inflammation and pain, and improve joint function.
PRP therapy is another joint preservation technique that uses the patient’s blood to promote healing. A small amount of blood is taken from the patient and processed to isolate the platelets, which contain growth factors that are important for tissue repair. The PRP is then injected into the affected joint, where it can stimulate the body’s natural healing processes and reduce inflammation and pain.
Both SVF and PRP therapy are minimally invasive procedures that can be performed on an outpatient basis. The treatments take only a few hours, and most patients can return to their normal activities the next day.
The procedures are safe and effective, and many patients report significant improvements in joint function and pain reduction.
Joint preservation techniques like SVF and PRP therapy offer an alternative to more invasive treatments like joint replacement surgery. They can help to prevent further joint damage and delay or even eliminate the need for surgery.
