How Do Regenerative Treatments Work as an Alternative to Hip Replacement Surgery?
If you are considering hip replacement surgery as a solution to your hip issues, it’s wise to explore your options before making the final decision to go under the knife. Even with the most skilled surgeon, hip replacement is a highly invasive procedure that requires months of physical rehabilitation and poses many risks along the way. When you opt for cell therapy or PRP therapy to resolve your hip pain, there is little to no downtime, and the treatments are minimally invasive.
Cell therapy uses regenerative tissue that’s collected from a substance called Wharton’s Jelly found in umbilical cords. The cords we use are willingly donated after scheduled C-sections, and both the mother and baby are unharmed throughout the process.
This tissue is still at the height of its healing power with potent healing components like:
- Growth factors
- Amino acids
- Hyaluronic acid
- And more
Platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) starts when we draw a small sample of blood from your arm. The sample is put into a centrifuge where it spins to separate the red blood cells from the platelets. Once separated, the platelets are highly concentrated with healing properties that can be injected into your damaged hip tissue to facilitate the healing process.
These regenerative treatments are minimally invasive, and there is little chance of rejection if any. They are effective because they address the underlying cause of your hip pain and don’t just mask the symptoms like pain medication.
In regenerative medicine, you have the best of both worlds because the procedures don’t require downtime, and there are no potentially dangerous substances to ingest.
