What Is Regenerative Orthopaedic Medicine?

The treatment of musculoskeletal conditions using biological therapies that aid in the healing of damaged and diseased tissues.

INJECTION THERAPIES

A rapidly rising medical breakthrough, Plasma Rich Protein (PRP) injections are getting to be noticeably prominent among the general population. PRP injections are also called Platelet-rich protein injections, Plasma rich protein therapy and PRP treatments.

PRP has 5 to 10 times more platelets than what is typically found in blood. Platelet activation plays a key part during the process of a wound and soft tissue healing. The use of PRP, a portion of the patient’s own blood having a platelet concentration above baseline, to stimulate healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints can be applied to various musculoskeletal issues (problems related to your muscles, bones, ligaments, tendons, etc. and chronic (long-term) injuries.

The concentration of platelets – and growth factors – has important implications in healing, and can potentially regenerate tissue and cartilage.

In this procedure, a gel-like fluid called hyaluronic acid (HA) is injected into the a joint. HA is a naturally occurring substance found in the synovial fluid surrounding joints. This substance acts as a lubricant to enable bones to move smoothly over each other and as a shock absorber for joint loads. People with osteoarthritis have a lower-than-normal concentration of hyaluronic acid in their joints.

The theory is that adding hyaluronic acid to the arthritic joint will facilitate movement and reduce pain. Research suggests that viscosupplementation therapy is most effective if the arthritis is in its early stages (mild to moderate). If the injections are effective they are often repeated after a 6 month period.

Research in viscosupplementation therapy and its long-term effects continues.

Bone marrow aspirate concentrate is made from fluid taken from bone marrow. The bone marrow aspirate contains stem cells that can augment cartilage, bone defects, and tendon (soft tissue) repair. For successful tissue regeneration, it is necessary to have cells that are capable of high proliferation but also differentiation. These must be placed in a suitably created environment to allow for such regeneration to occur.

Bone marrow aspirate concentrate is obtained with a minimally invasive procedure that avoids the risks of an open bone graft procedure. Marrow is most commonly taken from the pelvis, but may be taken from other sites. Research supports that cBMA is a safe and reliable procedure.

Tissue engineering techniques using bone marrow-derived stem cells is an attractive, promising and growing area of research within the field of trauma and orthopaedics.
