Use your own Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to reduce pain and stimulate your body's ability to heal itself.

 

If you have acute pain due to injury, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) derived from your own blood can help stimulate your body's amazing ability to heal itself, naturally.  Platelets are types of cells within the blood that contain growth and healing factors. When concentrated and injected into the damaged area these platelets release the growth factors and stimulate the body to heal itself.

 

The platelets in PRP play a primary part in the clotting of blood. They are also a rich resource of growth factors. Growth factors play an essential role in wound healing and the process of regeneration. But PRP also releases an abundance of other substances critical in the healing of wounds. PRP augments the creation of blood vessels, improves
healing of soft tissues, and enhances the regeneration of bone. Platelet rich plasma holds a concentration of platelets that is five to ten times the amount of platelets found in blood. Specifically, a platelet is a cell that is disk shaped.

 

Along with red and white blood cells, platelets circulate through the bloodstream. A platelet contains natural growth factors. Among them are proteins and cytokines. When bones or soft tissue -such as tendons or ligaments- are damaged, the growth factors in platelets stimulate healing of bone and soft tissues.

 

These proteins, cytokines and other growth factors in the PRP provide a number of ways to assist in the repairing of cell damage. They decrease inflammation, improve cell growth, and provide signaling to the immune system. In addition, particular types of cytokines focus on the creation of metabolic pathways that support cell recovery.

 

With PRP there is both no risk of the immune system rejecting the therapy or any risk of disease transmission. This is because the PRP is derived from your own blood. There is also no prolonged recovery time. In general, most people return to their jobs or usual activities right after the procedure.

 

Don't let pain or injury stop you from living the life you love.

The Stem Cell Therapy Process

1

 

Initial consultation

Our expert physicians will meet with you by phone or in-person to review your medical history and will determine if you’re a good candidate for stem cell therapy. If we agree stem cell therapy can help, we’ll schedule your first appointment in our offices in either Kansas City or Manhattan, Kansas.

Treatment

In most cases our outpatient treatment takes four hours and is nearly pain free. You do not have to “go under.” Our treatment is a nearly painless procedure that uses only a small amount of local anesthesia. On the day of your procedure, our physicians will collect stem cells from a small area of fat deposits through a simple lipoaspiration procedure. After stem cell collection, you will relax in a private room. Once processed, your stem cells will be injected into the area of need using a highly sophisticated ultrasound instrument with enhanced needle visualization for precise delivery of your stem cells. In most cases, we also administer an IV of your stem cells during treatment to further enhance your body’s natural healing process.

Follow-up Treatment

There is virtually no recovery time from your stem cell therapy procedure. Most people are back to work the following day. Our physician will remain in touch with you during your recovery process to answer questions.

Payment Options

Patients who are considered to be candidates will be invited for a consultation with one of our panel physicians completely free of charge. Treatment cost varies depending on the disease state being treated and which type of stem cell deployment is required. To apply for medical financing, visit Bank of the Flint Hills.
