Regenerative medicine has emerged as a popular therapy as the repair and regenerative capacity of stem cell therapy and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) are increasingly becoming more popular as high profile athletes such as Tiger Woods, Kobe Bryant, and Rafael Nadal turn to these procedures to aid in recovery.

The appeal of stem cell therapy in conjunction with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) lies in the special characteristics that stem cells exert upon the healing process and in the regenerative capabilities of these cells.
