Non-Surgical Regenerative Therapy

Hyaluronan Knee injections


HOW A HYALGAN KNEE INJECTION WORKS


  • Replaces OA synovial fluid with higher HA concentration—improves viscosity in the knee.
  • ReplacesOA synovial fluid with higher HA concentration—improves viscosity.
  • Maintains boundary layer around nociceptors, reducing pain.

WHY try a HYALGAN  INJECTION THERAPY:


  • Months of effective pain relief
  • Prevents further damage by replacing joint fluid
  • Approved by the FDA for OA treatment.
  • Naturally-derived formulation


 

 


Stem Cell Implantation

In collaboration with  industry leading Terumo-Harvest Technologies, Germany we offer Stem Cell harvest and implantation for Cartilage and Tendon regeneration.


WE USE A COMBINATION OF FAT, PRP AND BONE-MARROW STEM CELLS FOR GRAFTING

This is an outpatient procedure, where similar to a Bone Marrow Biopsy, a sample is collected (BMAC).  Also, a  Fat graft is collected.  This is processed in our in-house laboratory and implanted into the damaged tissue for regeneration.  We only use Ultrasound Guidance in order to ensure cells are not exposed to harmful X-ray radiation. Further, ultrasound offers pinpoint direct visualization of the target tissue in real-time.

PRP

Platelet Rich Plasma is a concentration of platelet cells taken from blood, these platelets have growth factors  that help in the healing process of injuries. PRP may improve tendon injuries as well as other chronic tendinosis. For Example, it could be possible to treat an acute Achilles tendon tear non-operatively using a PRP injection. Non-surgical, ultrasound guided injection of PRP into the Achilles tendon within one month of injury, significantly improved a 90% Achilles tendon rupture in 6 weeks, leaving only a small focal tear. At 24 weeks, the tear was completely resolved.

What is Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate (BMAC) ?


Uniquely composed of multiple cell types  BMAC allows the broadest possible range of functions. Cell lines  that work together to regenerate tissue are:


  • Endothelial progenitor cells:      Stimulate angiogenesis, release BMP-2 and BMP-6, and up-regulate the production of BMP-2
  • Hematopoietic stem cells:     Directly convert to stromal MSCs (CD34+)
  • Mesenchymal stem cells:       Convert to osteoblasts
  • Platelets:      Mediate cell-to-cell adhesion through the release of various adhesion and growth factors such as SDF-1a
  • Lymphocytes:   Support the migration and proliferation of EPCs
  • Granulocytes:     Release vascular endothelial growth factors in support of angiogenesis


Harvest BMAC Technologies concentrates these key cells in their natural ratios in less than 15 minutes at the GVMD Interventional Pain Services facility in Beverly Hills.
