​What is Orthobiologics?

Orthobiologics are substances that Sports Medicine doctors like Dr. Sellers use to help injuries heal more quickly. They are used to improve the healing of broken bones and injured muscles, tendons, and ligaments. These products are often made from substances that are naturally found in your body. When they are used in higher concentrations, they may help speed up the healing process.

Our Orthobiologic Solutions

Platelet-rich plasma therapy, or PRP therapy. Platelets are components of our own blood that have the ability to promote healing in an area of injury or pain. Platelet-rich plasma therapy, or PRP therapy, involves the injection of the patient’s own concentrated source of platelets in order to stimulate the body’s own healing of damaged tissue. PRP therapy does not involve surgery and is typically used to treat arthritis, muscle sprains, tears, ligament issues, and tendon issues.

High-level athletes have used PRP therapy for many years in order to accelerate healing when dealing with pain or injury. Recent advancements in the field of orthobiologic medicine have made it possible to offer these innovative procedures to all patients who are good candidates.

Lipogems® is a new advancement in technology and is ideal for patients that have an orthopaedic condition, are unable to get major, invasive surgery, would like another option to major, invasive surgery, or would like to be used in conjunction with their surgery.

Microfragmented adipose tissue processed by the LIPOGEMS System is used to provide cushion and support to help the natural healing process by supporting the repair, replacement, reconstruction of damaged or injured tissue.

How does PRP Therapy Work?

The procedure begins by obtaining a sample of the patient’s blood. The sample is then placed in a high-spinning centrifuge machine. The spinning separates the blood into different components: red blood cells and plasma. Within the plasma layer are the platelets. After a second spin in the centrifuge, we concentrate and isolate the platelets. 

A concentrated source of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is then injected into and around the injured or damaged tissue. The concentrated source of platelets promotes the natural healing of damaged ligaments, cartilage, tendons and joints..

At Sellers Sports Medicine, our PRP is concentrated enough that the patient only needs one injection, no need for a series of multiple injections for the same treatment. 

The entire process takes approximately 45 to 60 minutes. 

PRP therapy can be used to treat a wide range of conditions and injuries associated with the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, ankle, and foot. See more below.
