Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelet Rich Plasma, or “PRP,” is the most researched method to heal sports injuries faster, without surgery. The idea behind it is to concentrate the individual’s platelets and growth factors from a simple blood draw with a centrifuge, then inject it into the injured area. APEX offers higher PRP concentrations and customized concentrations for each patient within our overall regenerative medicine plan in Kansas City.
- Tendon tears
- Ligament tears
- Joint Pain
Stem Cell Injections
Bone marrow contains rich levels of regenerative stem cells. These cells are withdrawn from an individual’s body then placed in a centrifuge to separate the regenerative cells and platelets. This creates a concentrate that is 5-11 times richer in growth hormones, which is then injected into the injured area under ultrasound guidance to promote the body’s natural healing capabilities.
- Tendon injuries
The idea behind “proliferation therapy” is to irritate a tendon or joint into thinking it is more injured than it actually is, resulting in a profound inflammatory and healing response. The trusted and highly experienced regenerative medicine doctors at APEX Ortho in Kansas City will help you determine the best course of action for your medical needs.

Recovery & Outcomes
In many cases, PRP and Stem Cell (BMC) treatments provide a permanent cure to the injured tissue. In other instances, the treatments provide several years of pain relief. Our team will discuss your expected outcome with you, based on your specific diagnosis and personal goals.
Most patients return to normal, daily activities the same as the treatment. Because these treatments use your own cells and natural growth capabilities, the pain relief typically begins around 4 to 8 weeks after treatment.
