Medica Institute offer minimally invasive, non-surgical, safe alternatives for Bed Sores or Pressure Ulcers treatment to get your life back on track!
Bed sores, also called pressure ulcers or decubitus ulcers, are injuries to the skin and underlying tissue resulting from prolonged pressure that in return results in reduced blood flow to the area. It occurs in skin areas covering a bony prominence and affects people in a long term lying or sitting positions as paralysis, long term bed ridding illness or frailty.
An infected sore takes longer to heal, and the infection can spread elsewhere in the body with more serious consequences. Complications of bed sores or pressure ulcers may arise and some can be life-threatening, like cellulitis – an infection of the skin and connected soft tissues, bone and joint infections – an infection from a bed sore can burrow into joints and bones. Traditional treatment of bed sores include reducing pressure, cleaning and dressing wounds and removing the dead or infected tissue also called debridement. A sore that fails to heal might require surgery, like a surgical repair, where a pad of your muscle, skin or other tissue is used to cover the wound and cushion the affected bone.
At Medica Institute, we offer an innovative approach to treatment of these chronic sores with minimally invasive non-surgical Regenerative Therapy. It has demonstrated the ability in promoting healing through stimulating new blood vessel formation (angiogenesis) and providing the extracellular matrix. With your own mesenchymal cells harvested as well as a simple blood sample both processed and prepared in no longer than a few hours to be re-injected locally around the wound area and wound dressing the regeneration of tissue will kick-start and you can start to see healing within a few weeks.
Regenerative Therapy has helped untold amounts of people to improve their quality of life. It by means of several protocols will ultimately help initiate the self-healing cycle in the injured part of the body and the end result then is pain relief.
Non-surgical Regenerative treatments are a same-day procedures and the options are:
• Platelet-rich plasma – PRP therapy
• Mesenchymal cell therapy
• SVF (Stromal vascular fraction) therapy
In certain cases it may be a combination of more than one treatment protocol. For some patients however, the complete protocol is a series of injections in several treatment sessions. The choice of treatment is at the discretion of the Consultant and is based on your unique case.
Please contact us for a consultation and complete assessment to determine whether or not your condition can be treated with these minimally invasive, non-surgical regenerative procedures.
What are the top Benefits of Non-surgical Regenerative Treatments?
With so many options out there, you may be wondering what benefits choosing Non-surgical Regenerative Treatments provides. Over all Regenerative treatments are minimally invasive, non-surgical same day procedures with no risk of rejection, minimal recovery time and minimal worry. You are fully awake and ready to go home within a few hours after injections in the affected area. Since you undergo an autologous transplant with the cells that originated within your own body, your immune system has no reason to attack them and is in turn much safer than other outside sources, there is no risk of contracting a transmittable infectious disease from a donor patient also. In fact, studies thus far have indicated no safety issues with fat-derived autologous (from self) cells. Because they are your own cells, the risk of rejection is eliminated. Like any procedure, there is a minute risk of infection at the sample collection and at the injection site. To minimise that risk the procedure is carried out under strict sterile conditions.
