The American Spine Team is pleased to announce the launch of their Plasma Rich Platelet (PRP) Therapy and Stem Cell Therapy Treatments as part of their innovative Regenerative Medicine Program.

American Spine is a practice on the cutting edge, committed to providing the latest, most effective, and innovative treatments for its patients. As part of this philosophy, American Spine joins the excitement surrounding Regenerative Medicine, a modern and progressive field of orthopedics and sports medicine. Regenerative Medicine involves the application of biological therapy treatments that enhance the body's ability to heal itself.

Dr. Sandeep Sherlekar, M.D., an owner and physician at American Spine, comments: "PRP and Stem Cell Treatments are revolutionary regeneration options for now and the future."

The major benefit of PRP and Stem Cell Therapy Treatments is the use of the patient's own whole blood, bone marrow stem cells and adipose stem cells, thus eliminating the risk of rejection or infection from other donors. These treatments are increasing in popularity as an alternative to other more invasive techniques in treating ailments such as: Muscle Tears, Meniscus and ACL Injuries, Tennis and Golf Elbow, Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome, various types of Tendonitis, Plantar Fasciitis, Spine Disease with either Degenerative Disks or Annular Tearing, Osteoarthritis in the joints and many more. They are used as a way to speed healing after other methods of treatment or to aid in the healing of resistant, long lasting injuries.

The blood and/or stem cells are harvested from the patient and are then prepared using state-of-the-art technologies. The preparation of PRP allows for a platelet sample that is 5 times more concentrated with platelets than normal blood. Similarly, the preparation of the patient's stem cells produces a much higher concentration of stem cells, both of which are essential in the healing process. The PRP and/or stem cells are then injected back into the patient's injured or degenerated tissues under guided imaging. The potential complications of such treatments are similar to those associated with regular joint injections.

American Spine stringently follows the FDA guidelines for the clinical use of blood and stem cells. We do not expand, reproduce or grow anything within a culture.
