The Regenerative Clinic has launched a minimally invasive day case treatment for joint pain and movement difficulties, such as arthritis.
Activated Mesenchymal Pericyte Plasma injections (AMPP®) combine two well-established treatments – Lipogems® and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), which are injected into the affected area under ultrasound guidance.
Lipogems technology prepares fat cells to trigger a healing response. The cells detect injury and attach themselves to damage where they react and regrow tissue. These pre-cursor stem cells have a pro-antibiotic effect which reduces pain and inflammation.
The Regenerative Clinic CEO Simon Checkley said: ‘AMPP is a minimally invasive procedure and can be an alternative to major surgery even aiding post-surgery recovery. There are no major incisions or cuts. AMPP can help if you have an injury or long-term condition that limits daily activity, or if you have pain or limited joint movement. We are finding that is particularly helpful for people with arthritis who may have already tried physiotherapy, NSAIDs or steroid injections as a powerful and minimally invasive alternative to pain relief.
Regenerative or orthobiologic medicine is used for non-surgical treatment and to augment surgical procedures and enhance healing. The Regenerative Clinic is pioneering its use in the UK and currently operates from a number of locations across London, Ascot, Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool and Exeter.
