Orthobiologics

Our body has specific healing cells called mesenchymal cells which have the ability to repair and heal damaged parts. But sometimes, due to the site or severity of the injury and in the elderly, the concentration of cells is not sufficient to promote adequate healing as it is unable to keep up with the damage that is done.

Orthobiologics is a branch of Regenerative Medicine which uses your body's natural healing cells to repair the damage by concentrating and focusing them f2at the exact site of your injury. This approach allows for natural, efficacious healing without the need for surgery. These cells are harvested from the blood, bone marrow and fat by a complex process and the concentrated cells are used for treatment of various disorders.

Bone-marrow Stem Cells (BMAC)

Stem cells are cells that can turn into other types of cells following a injury. They are our body’s primary means of repairing damage. There are many types of stem cells but the mesenchymal stem cells have proved to be very effective in healing responses.

These cells are primarily derived from bone marrow. They can turn into bone, cartilage, muscle, tendons or ligaments. We draw bone marrow from your hip bones and process it in our lab to derive 5-20 times more stem cells per unit volume. These stem cells are then injected using precise image guidance into the precise area of injury to rebuild and repair the effects of damaged tissue.

Fat Derived Stem Cells

Fat derived stem cells are taken from the fat in your body by a process called liposuction. They are less effective than bone marrow stem cells as a means of repairing injuries. These cells are more effective when used to treat orthopedic injuries to create a fat graft that supports and holds in place other structures and allows them to heal appropriately. More concentrate of fat derived stem cells can be obtained compared to bone marrow cells.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy is an advanced out-patient procedure which heals injuries by concentrating the platelets in your blood to enhance healing. These platelets have growth factors that can kick start your normal healing process to encourage your body to heal by itself. 30ml of blood is taken from your body and centrifuged using a special machine to separate the platelets and growth factors from the red and white cells. The PRP obtained is concentrated by a factor of 3X - 5X. These cells are then injected under imaging guidance into target sites of injury to achieve maximum concentration of cells in the injured sites. This produces better tissue healing in tendon injuries and better stimulation of the local stem cells. 

ACS (Autologous Conditioned Serum)

Autologous conditioned serum (ACS) was developed in the mid 1990s as an inexpensive means to generate an injectable material enriched in endogenous interleukin-1 receptor antagonist, a naturally occurring inhibitor of the cytokine interleukin-1 as a novel therapeutic for Osteoarthritis. The latter is thought to be an important mediator of inflammation, pain, and tissue destruction in musculoskeletal conditions. It was seen that exposure of blood to glass beads elicits a vigorous, rapid increase in the synthesis of several anti-inflammatory cytokines, including IL-1Ra. This observation is the basis for producing ACS, which is injected into the affected joint in a series of three intra-articular injections given once a week for 3 weeks. This therapy is currently available and it protects cartilage from degradation. ACS has been widely and successfully used in the local treatment of osteoarthritis and radicular compression; it has also shown promise in treating tendinopathies, muscle injuries, and tunnel widening after reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament. Experience suggests that autologous conditioned serum is safe and effective.
