ANOVA now offers Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) for Orthopedic Treatments
ANOVA Institute for Regenerative Medicine is now offering Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) on its own or in combination with other therapies such as Bone Marrow Concentrate (BMC) or hyaluronic acid for the effective treatment of different orthopedic problems.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a blood product derived solely from the patient’s own blood. Besides small solid components (red and white cells, bioactive proteins and growth factors) it has a large number of platelets. Especially the bioactive proteins are shown to play a vital role in tissue healing and hemostasis. PRP can thus be a powerful tool for the treatment of specific orthopedic problems.
Recent scientific work has shown the effectiveness of PRP for osteoarthritis1, tendon regeneration2, nonhealing wounds3 and musculoskeletal conditions4, amongst others.
ANOVA is now offering PRP Treatment alone or in combination with Bone Marrow Concentrate Therapy and other medical therapies for different diseases. At ANOVA, we concentrate the platelets — and with that the concentration of all bioactive compounds —5 to 10 times than usual, and administer it to the patient for it to unfold its healing properties.

The Power of Exosomes
The term “exosomes” has frequently been in the news in recent years. They have been known to biologists since their discovery in the 1980s, but they remain something unknown to most other people. As their relevance in the pharmaceutical and medical field increases, we want to explain in simple ways what exosomes are, and why they are disrupting science.
Stem Cell Treatment Improves Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD) and Chronic Back Pain
Degenerative disc disease (DDD) is one of the most common sources of back pain and affects approximately 30 million people every year. It can lead to a chronic debilitating condition and can have a serious negative impact on a person's quality of life. Although several structures within the spine have been identified as sources of pain, the intervertebral disc accounts for approx. 40-50% of all chronic lower back pain. When pain from DDD is severe, traditional non-operative treatment may be ineffective.
Recent research has shown that the injection of bone marrow stem cells into degenerating discs can halt and in some cases even reverse their degeneration. This is important, because this in turn slows down or halts the cascade of secondary problems resulting from a degenerating discs, such as chronic back pain, restricted motion, spinal cord and nerve root compression with radiating pain in arms and legs, deformation and inflammation in vertebral bodies (osteochondrosis), facet joint arthrosis and others.
Does stem cell therapy for knees work?
As kids, nasty grazes aside, we may not have thought a lot about our knees. As adults, our situation is a little different. We may feel our joints hurt a little more often.
However, it’s not only those entering their twilight years who are susceptible to knee pain and degeneration. Anyone trying to maintain an active lifestyle or doing regular physical exercise will be no stranger to knee injuries.
Are knee surgeries the only way to treat these injuries and get rid of the pain? Luckily, no. Stem cell treatment is giving hope to patients worldwide. In this post, learn more about knee injuries and how stem cell-based treatments can offer a longer lasting solution to your knee problems..
Can stem cells help with orthopedic issues?
All around the world, patients with various diseases are turning to stem cell-based treatments to improve their conditions. People with orthopedic issues are no exception.
