Cell Based Therapy
OrthoMiami proudly offers some of the newest, cutting-edge orthopedic techniques using cellular and regenerative therapy. Our practice has effectively blended proven and traditional orthopedic concepts with innovative and cell-based methods in more recent years. Cesar E. Ceballos, M.D. has become a pioneer of new discoveries and groundbreaking research specifically in these areas.
At OrthoMiami, we offer multiple regenerative procedures for qualified candidates seeking an alternative to traditional orthopedic surgery in Miami. These procedures include Platelet Rich Plasma and Stem Cell Therapy. These treatments have not only proven to be more convenient and less invasive for the patient, but they’ve also provided better results than many traditional surgeries as well.
Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelet rich plasma uses your body’s own cells for rebuilding damaged tissue to promote faster healing. PRP injections transfer blood plasma rich in platelets with other growth-factor proteins to other areas of the body. When you’re a patient of Cesar E. Ceballos, M.D., he may recommend PRP therapy if you haven’t found any other treatment that relieves your pain.
While the powerful growth factor cells in PRP start going to work right away, it takes some time for you to experience the full benefit of this treatment. After injection, we recommend at least a few days of rest for our patients. Typically, patients undergo physical therapy Miami for the first six weeks following the PRP treatment. Dr. Ceballos then re-evaluates the patient after six to 12 weeks to monitor and analyze the progress.
Patients often receive PRP injections for the following conditions:Knee Arthroscopy
Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that have the potential to differentiate into a variety of different cell types. These cells are immature cells which have the capability of becoming more specialized cells that the body needs. It’s important to understand that there are several different types of stem cells found in the human body. Those differences can have a significant impact on the quality and effectiveness of the treatment.
Cellular Therapy is the transplantation of human cells to repair damaged tissue. Many types of cells can be used for different conditions, such as therapies for rebuilding cartilage in joints, infectious diseases and weakened immune systems.
