PRP benefits

At Oregon Regenerative Medicine, we continue to be the leading providers of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) and autologous stem cells in the treatment of sports injuries, joint preservation and osteoarthritis. But our pioneering expertise extends far beyond regenerative musculoskeletal medicine. Here are the other conditions where the regenerative power of PRP is making a difference in the lives of our patients:

1. Dermatology and Aesthetics

Hair Loss: Painless  PRP injections into the scalp can stimulate hair growth and improve hair density in conditions like androgenic alopecia (pattern hair loss).

Facial Rejuvenation: PRP is used in combination with microneedling and/or injections, to induce collagen synthesis and repair photodamage, improve skin texture, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and enhance overall skin rejuvenation.

2. Oral and Maxillofacial Conditions

Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Disorders: PRP injections can reverse arthritis and reduce pain and inflammation associated with TMJ disorders.

3. Chronic Wounds

Non-healing Ulcers: PRP can be applied topically or injected into chronic wounds, such as diabetic foot ulcers or venous leg ulcers, to stimulate tissue repair and accelerate wound healing.

4. Dry Eye Syndrome

Dr. Peterson’s Dry Eye protocol has been proven to be effective in reversing the atrophy of the meibomian glands that lubricate our eyes and prevent our eyes from drying out. This innovative treatment was pioneered here at Oregon Regenerative Medicine.

5. TBI, Early Dementia

  • The PLAN for Recovery protocol
  • TBI in children playing school sports
  • Alzheimer’s disease, neurodegeneration and Parkinson’s disease is forecasted to cause increasing disability as our population ages, and the use of platelet derived neural growth factors promises to revolutionize treatment.  Your blood contains bioactive growth factors that are necessary for the repair of neurons (brain cells) and we harness power of the growth factors circulating in your own blood.

It’s important to note that while PRP has proven benefits in these conditions, its effectiveness can vary depending on factors such as the specific protocol used, the strength and quality of the PRP, and most importantly, the expertise of the physicians treating you. It’s always advisable to consult with the most trusted and experienced doctors in precision regenerative medicine in the Pacific Northwest: Oregon Regenerative Medicine.
