On Site Services
At The Orthopaedic Hand and Arm Center, we strive to provide the highest quality care. In addition to expert diagnosis and treatment provided by board-certified specialist, Dr. Tosca Kinchelow, we offer convenient on-site services that include:
- X-ray imaging
- PRP (platelet rich plasma) therapy
- PPP (platelet poor plasma)
PRP therapy is a procedure that uses components of a patient’s own blood cells to stimulate the natural healing process for certain orthopedic conditions. Your body’s first response to a soft tissue injury (ligaments and tendons) is to deliver platelet cells that are filled with healing and growth factors. These platelets start the repair process. PRP therapy’s natural healing process accelerates your body’s efforts by delivering a higher concentration of platelets through a simple injection that provides effective pain relief and faster healing. PRP therapy can eliminate the need for surgery and prolonged recovery.
PRP therapy has been shown to decrease pain associated with upper extremity injuries, such as:
PPP is similar to PRP in that it contains plasma. However, it contains almost no platelets. Instead, PPP contains very high levels of fibrinogen, an agent that speeds up the healing of wounds.
Here at The Orthopaedic Hand and Arm Center, we use holistic and regenerative medicine to help you feel better.
Through the use of regenerative medicine, such as PRP and PPP therapies, we can stimulate the body’s natural healing process. Whether you are dealing with a serious injury or a chronic disease, our medical team may be able to help you lead a healthier, happier life thanks to regenerative medicine treatments.
Regenerative medicine can offer amazing results to patients of all ages that are dealing with a variety of injuries, diseases, and conditions that keep them from living full lives. You may benefit from regenerative medicine if you are dealing with any of these conditions:
- Tennis elbow
- Peripheral neuropathy
- Herniated disc
- Degenerative disc disease
- Spinal stenosis
- Nerve damage
- Spinal cord injury
- Joint instability
- Torn ligaments and cartilage
Regenerative medicine can offer natural approaches that stimulate the body’s healing response rather than turning to invasive procedures and surgeries in order to repair tissue. Plus, it also has the ability to slow down progressive symptoms associated with chronic conditions like arthritis. Regenerative medicine can also be used to treat pain just about anywhere in the body, from the shoulders and wrists to the ankles and knees.
We offer HTCP (human cellular tissue products) injections, which are far more effective than prescription medications, because they are designed to target and eliminate inflammation to reduce chronic forms of pain.
By administering growth factors along with hyaluronic acid and other HCTPs into bodily tissue, we can enhance wound healing and greatly reduce inflammation and pain while also repairing and strengthening damaged tissue within the body. Some patients saw a marked improvement in symptoms just weeks after regenerative therapy.
