For people with chronic joint pain, simple daily activities like walking or exercising can cause pain and distress. Injury and age-related breakdown of normal tissue are among the most common causes of joint pain and stiffness.
When conservative treatments haven’t brought you relief and surgery isn’t an option, regenerative medicine may be the solution.
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy uses components of your blood to amplify the body’s natural healing response.
When normal tissue is damaged, the body releases platelets packed with growth factors and other healing agents to jumpstart the healing process.
PRP therapy involves extracting platelets from your own blood and injecting the serum directly into the damaged tissue.
PRP therapy eases joint pain by reducing inflammation, aiding tissue repair, and potentially slowing wear and tear.
Dr. Goswami uses stem cells to treat joint pain and soft tissue injuries as an alternative to surgery and other mainstream treatment options.
Stem cells are special starter cells that can develop into any cell, such as cartilage and muscle. Stem cells are the only cells in your body with this capability; they can even divide to produce more cells.
This therapy involves injecting the patient’s stem cells to stimulate the body to repair and replace damaged tissue in joint or soft tissue structures, such as knees, shoulders, hips, wrists, ankles, and elbows.
Patients treated with stem cells have shown significantly improved pain and joint function.
