For many years, medicine has been looking for ways to improve tissue healing and shorten the time needed for bone union and soft tissue healing. The answer to this search is, among others, treatment with so-called growth factors or regenerative cells. In many orthopaedic disorders, treatment with periarticular blocks is still sometimes indicated.
GROWTH FACTOR THERAPY
Growth factors can be used in adjunction to the surgical treatment of bone fractures, reconstruction of ligaments of the knee or, for example, during reconstruction of a torn Achilles tendon.
On an outpatient basis, growth factors are administered to patients mainly in the case of degenerative and overload changes in the soft tissues, in particular the tendons, muscles and joints. The entire procedure is performed under US control, so that the preparation connects with the exact area that requires treatment.
CELLULAR MATRIX™ – AN INNOVATIVE METHOD IN THE TREATMENT OF THE DEGENERATION OF JOINTS
CELLULAR MATRIX™ is an innovative regenerative treatment that uses a mixture of platelet-rich plasma with hyaluronic acid. This treatment accelerates tissue regeneration and healing, and reduces the level of pain and prevents further joint degeneration. The first effects of the treatment are felt after the first treatment.
Periarticular blocks are performed i.a. in synovial bursitis, tendon overload changes and in acute and chronic inflammation. The aim of the procedure is to remove pain locally, reduce inflammation, remove post-traumatic spasms, muscle contractures and other vasomotor disorders. The procedure involves injecting selected periarticular structures, such as ligaments, tendons, muscles, synovial bursae and joint capsules, with a specially selected drug.
LIPOGEMS REGENERATION CELL THERAPY
LIPOGEMS therapy consists in the administration of cells and regenerative factors obtained from capillaries of the purified and mechanically processed adipose tissue taken from the patient. Injection takes place into a diseased area where regeneration and repair of the damaged tissue is required. The administered cells inhibit scarring processes, stop the process of cell death and enhance their natural ability to regenerate. In addition, they act as anti-inflammatory and bactericidal agents.
The treatment is especially recommended:
in degenerative lesions of the joints
for the reconstruction of bone and cartilage tissues
in the degeneration of intervertebral discs
The Lipogems procedure is performed under local anaesthesia or, in more sensitive people, under intravenous sedation. After the procedure, the patient does not require hospitalisation and may be released home within a few hours of its completion.
