PRP is plasma with many more platelets than what is typically found in blood. PRP is done with the patient’s own blood.
A cryopreserved umbilical cord blood (UCB) cellular allograft that is a rich source of extracellular growth factors and cytokines that offers regenerative support for soft tissue/ligament conditions. Cells are donated from healthy, disease free donors during healthy planned births.
What are the advantages to using umbilical cord tissue and amniotic fluid allografts?
