Tampa, Saint Petersburg and Clearwater, Fl
Regenerative Medicine is a new emerging field that is rapidly expanding into many medical fields. In orthopedics and musculoskeletal medicine, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell Therapy have seen a surge with elite athletes and in osteoarthritis of knee joints. The use of PRP and Stem Cell Therapy has included the hip, shoulder, wrist, ankle and spine.
