Stem Cell, Platelet rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment, India

With each passing year we are getting older. Although we wish to remain active, niggling injuries and degenerative changes affect our ability to do so. Medications, alcohol and other causes may lead to death of bone in the hip known as Avascular necrosis. Sports persons suffer injuries in everyday practice which has a tremendous impact on their careers. Tendons and joints degenerate. Knee osteo-arthritis is widely prevalent in India. Hip and shoulder osteo-arthritis are also prevalent.
These conditions may require joint replacement or reconstructive surgery. NSAID’s carry risks. So what does one do? Bear the pain and lead a poor quality of life?
Thankfully now, various PRP, medicinal signaling cell (stem cell) and joint preservation procedures are available as an alternative. You can turn to the healing power of your own body to heal the body. Signaling cell treatment can be combined with a joint preservation procedure to give a totally biological solution. PRP injections can heal sports injuries and allow fast return to the sport. Bone death can be arrested and cured avoiding the need for a hip replacement. Cartilage lesions in young patients can be healed with a single stage cartilage repair. Stem cells are effective in knee osteo-arthritis as shown by several studies.
 Biological treatments carry very little risk and are affordable. When I can extend the dateline for your primary joint replacement, this should postpone or avoid a revision replacement. The biggest advantage of PRP/ signaling cell treatment is that you can continue with the functional use of your own natural joints for as long as possible. 

I offer Platelet rich plasma and signaling cell treatment in Chennai.
