Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Although blood is mainly a liquid (called plasma), it also contains small solid components (red cells, white cells, and platelets). The platelets are best known for their importance in clotting blood. However, platelets also contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors that are very important in the healing of injuries. PRP is plasma with many more platelets than what is typically found in the blood. The concentration of platelets — and, thereby, the concentration of growth factors — can be 5 to 10 times greater (or richer) than usual.
To develop a PRP preparation, blood must first be drawn from a patient. The platelets are separated from other blood cells, and their concentration is increased during a process called centrifugation. These platelets are then injected into the injured site.

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally present in the human body. It is found in the highest concentrations of fluids in the eyes and joints. The FDA has approved the use of hyaluronic acid for injection into the knee for patients with knee osteoarthritis. The hyaluronic acid injection is used to treat patients who have already been treated with pain relievers (e.g., acetaminophen) and other treatments that did not work well. It works by acting like a lubricant and shock absorber in the joints and helps the joints to work properly.

Placental-Derived Tissue Allograft

Placental-derived natural tissue allografts have been recognized to provide protective biological and regenerative properties and have become an active tool used in various fields, including pain management, orthopedics, wound care, and surgery.
Independent peer-reviewed studies have shown that the placental-derived tissue allografts’ natural biological roles include mechanical and anti-microbial protection of the fetus and serve as a source of growth factors to mediate biological processes. When delivered to a localized area of injury, this combination of biologics contributes to the body’s anti-inflammatory and regenerative response.
Placental-derived natural tissue allografts are procured through a voluntary donation from scheduled Caesarean procedures of healthy full-term births. Maternal donors are screened per FDA and AATB guidelines for a panel of infectious diseases at an FDA registered and CLIA certified laboratory and against established medical-social risk factors. Once received, the placental tissue is filtered through a low-protein binding filter and terminally sterilized with gamma irradiation to ensure recipient safety. The tissue is maintained in its native state: never frozen, no micronization, no harsh chemicals, and no lyophilization. This minimal manipulation process was designed to maintain the protective and regenerative integrity of the tissue, with minimal degradation of tissue structure and minimal denaturation of proteins. The proprietary processing method preserves soluble factors from the native environment.

Wharton’s Jelly

Wharton’s Jelly is derived from the umbilical cord that provides cushioning and support to the umbilical vein and arteries. Wharton’s Jelly does not exhibit an immune reaction or rejection, considered “immune privileged”. Does not alter the original tissue’s function as a Wharton’s Jelly connective tissue, providing physical support and cushioning. Wharton’s Jelly is regulated as a human cell, tissue, or cellular-tissue based product. This is regulated as human cell product-for homologous use only.

Cryopreserved for the ultimate biological viability.


Features of Wharton’s Jelly

Wharton’s Jelly contains a higher concentration of long-chain hyaluronic acid and growth factors.

Our Wharton’s Jelly is minimally manipulated to preserve the biological components of Wharton’s Jelly¹.

Wharton’s Jelly provides cushioning, support and lubrication; Wharton’s Jelly is the only biologic which has the structure to perform these functions.
