TotallyRegen- Growth Factors
At TotallyRegen, Dr Rodriguez utilizes a more advanced form of Platelet Rich Plasma, known as Orthokine. Orthokine contains concentrated platelets like PRP, but also contains blood circulating stem cells capable of tissue repair. It is created by a special process, rather than a simple bedside centrifuge. The patient procedure is similar as PRP, but far more care goes into ensuring the needed growth factors mixture is as pure and effective as possible. Orthokine patients rarely experience the post-injection flareups that are sometimes seen with standard PRP. For a more complete overview of why Orthokine is a superior form of Platelet Rich Plasma when compared to the typical PRP created using a standard bedside centrifuge, click here.
Growth factors Injection Procedure Details
Your body responds to injuries by delivering platelet cells containing growth and healing factors to the injured area. These platelets initiate the repair process and attract the critical assistance of stem cells. Growth factors therapy aides the body’s natural healing process by attracting a higher concentration of healing cells, directly into the area of need. Growth factors therapy involves drawing a sample of your blood, which is processed to isolate the cytokines and growth factors. Your own growth factors are precisely injected back into the area in need of repair, enhancing the healing process. The process has been shown to be safe and effective.
GF therapy is a fairly simple procedure that requires a few hours in our clinic. Patients typically require no downtime from the procedure, as it is a simple injection procedure that requires minimal anesthesia and little recovery time. Patients typically require 2-3 reinjections depending on their condition.
Patients may experience improvements within the first couple of weeks, with continued improvements over time ( along with possible reinjections ).
