What is PRP?

With Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections, we are able to isolate and concentrate a patient’s platelets and introduce them into an injured area. This treatment enables a patient’s body to accelerate the healing process and lessen inflammation.

Our quality control program at Lower Westchester Foot & Ankle ensures that our PRP preparation is of a consistently high quality that meets the specific needs of each individual case.

What is PRP used for?

Utilizing advanced ultrasound-guided procedures, PRP is used to treat a variety of musculoskeletal conditions and sports injuries including:

  • Tendon injuries such as Achilles & gastrocnemius, peroneal, ankle and foot conditions
  • Arthritis and posterior tibial injuries
  • Plantar fascia injuries (plantar fasciitis)
  • Ligament sprains

Are there advantages of using PRP?

Yes. PRP utilizes components from a patient’s own body that assist in the healing process. Because the procedure is minimally invasive, it requires only local anesthesia and can be performed outpatient, allowing patients to return to work and other normal activities quickly.

PRP also offers an option for those seeking relief from ligament pain but cannot undergo general surgery due to other medical reasons. Dr. Rubinstein uses innovative treatments such as PRP to help his patients return to activity with stronger, faster, and smarter healing.

How does a PRP Injection work?

A PRP injection for tennis elbow, arthritis, and other ligament disorders is an in-office procedure that initiates with a small sampling of blood drawn from the patient’s arm.

The blood sample is placed in a centrifuge which forms various layers, one of which contains platelet-rich plasma or PRP. PRP is a portion of the blood that contains both platelet cells and a concentrated liquid, which contains certain chemicals or growth factors that the body uses to regenerate itself.

PRP or platelet rich plasma injections occur at the site of arthritis, ligament tears, or tendon degeneration, with the goal of enabling the body to regenerate itself. Unlike cortisone injections, which only mask inflammation, PRP, when successful, generally results in long-lasting relief. Since the degenerative tissue was wearing out, PRP enables that tissue to regrow or regenerate itself.

What is Stem Cell Therapy?

Stem cells therapy uses the stem cell’s capacity to regenerate tissue to help patients recover from ligament and tendon injuries. Stem cells are naturally occurring, powerful cells that have the potential to modify inflammation and promote healing naturally.

This is most often accomplished by harvesting potentially therapeutic stem cells from a patient’s bone marrow. Generally, bone marrow is obtained from a patient’s pelvic bone, concentrated to remove unwanted portions, and injected back into the injured area.

Our quality control program at Lower Westchester Foot & Ankle ensures that our stem cell preparations are of a consistently high quality that meets the specific needs of each case.

What is Stem Cell Therapy Used For?

Utilizing advanced ultrasound-guided procedures, stem cells are used to treat a variety of musculoskeletal conditions and sports injuries including:

  • Arthritis and meniscal injuries
  • Tendon injuries such as Achilles, jumper’s knee, and tennis elbow conditions
  • Ligament sprains
  • Plantar fascia injuries (plantar fasciitis)

Are there Advantages of Using Stem Cell Therapy?

Yes. Stem cell therapy utilizes components from a patient’s own body that assist in the healing process allowing the use of fewer drugs and other therapies. Because the procedure is minimally invasive, it requires only local anesthesia and can be performed outpatient, allowing patients to return to their normal activities quickly. Dr. Rubinstein is dedicated to helping his patients and provides innovative treatments to promote smarter and faster healing.

How Does Stem Cell Therapy Work?

A stem cell injection for tennis elbow, arthritis, and other ligament disorders is an in-office procedure that initiates with a small sampling of stem cells drawn from the patient’s pelvic or other dense bone.

Through a process called differentiation, stem cells have the ability to develop into many different types of cells, including brain cells, skin cells, lung cells and soft tissue cells. Stem cells are a key component in regenerative medicine, as they open the door to new clinical applications without the need for general surgery or long recovery times.
