Plasma Rich in Growth Factors (PRGF)
We offer the latest technology in bone and tissue regeneration: Plasma Rich in Growth Factors (PRGF).
What does the PRGF technique involve?
When we suffer any injury, the human body releases protein (cellular signals) to stimulate the process of repairing that injury.
The PRGF technique isolates, from the blood plasma, these proteins which are responsible for wound healing and tissue regeneration. Once a therapeutic dose is applied to the treatment area, the repair process is accelerated.
To carry out this process, it is necessary to draw a small amount of blood from the patient, from which the PRGF is obtained through a centrifuge spinning process. This plasma is then placed where healing or regeneration of tissue and bone is needed.
How can PRGF contribute to your treatment?
Recovery and the healing process speed up so the risk of infection or any other post – surgical complication is less. Using PRGF will typically produce a noticeable improvement in swelling and postoperative discomfort.
Are there any contraindications?
This process can be considered an autograft, since it deals with the patient’s own proteins.
The PRGF procedure can be used on most patients and is recommended especially for those with healing problems or in need of stimulation of bone regeneration, as in the case of smokers and diabetics.
With the help of PRGF we can appropriately stimulate bone growth after surgical intervention and, at the same time, achieve rapid recovery.
