PLATELET RICH PLASMA TYPES AND USES
Platelet-rich plasma (Abbreviation: PRP) is blood plasma that has been enriched with platelets and growth factors

The Magellan PRP platelet separator is the ultimate technology that delivers platelet rich plasma along with multiple growth factors. PRP was initially developed in the 1970s and first used in 1987 in an open heart surgery procedure. Since then. doctors have used Platelet Rich Plasma therapy to aid bone healing after spinal injury and soft tissue recovery following plastic surgery.
More recently it has been discovered that the growth factors in PRP are synergistic (1+1=3) with stem cells derived from fat. Regenerative injection therapy, using platelet rich plasma (PRP) and stem cells is a non invasive alternative to surgery that promotes a natural healing process within the body.
At Cell Surgical Network of Florida, Dr. Lewis Obi has enhanced the standard national protocol by adding PRP to stem cells for all joint and soft tissue injections. In addition to the 10 different growth factors and messenger cells contained in PRP, it forms a thick gel scaffold when mixed with stem cells. This living cell matrix provides a more effective and prolonged reparative benefit to joints. Also, the cytokines (messenger cells) within the PRP telegraphs information directing the intravenous stem cells to areas of tissue injury.
Decades of research and significant investment in equipment, staffing and time evolved into what is perhaps the most advanced treatments that are provided at CSN of Florida (www.stemcellsurgeryflorida.com).
Descriptions of PRP and stem cells are perhaps too complex for a lay person not knowledgable in areas of hematology and medicine to understand. This is why unscrupulous providers of PR
