Sarasota, Florida – Dr. William F. Bennett, renowned Gulf Coast orthopedic surgeon, sports medicine practitioner, and entrepreneur, has once again set himself apart from the pack by using the most innovative regenerative treatment methods available to improve orthopedic surgical outcomes for his patients, namely platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections and stem cell treatments. Many know Dr. Bennett for his published work on this subject alongside Dr. Arnold Caplan, the “father of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs)”-basic science. In this published scientific article, Dr. Bennett states “This is a new era in the application of biologically active material, and it is transforming clinical practice by providing effective supportive treatments either at the time of the index procedure or during the postoperative period.” He and his co-authors analyze current peer-reviewed literature on the subject of regenerative medicine treatments for orthopedic issues and provide detailed insight specific to the “rotator cuff, meniscus, ligament, and articular cartilage surgical repair.” This literature and evidence review overwhelming support the use of regenerative medicine practices as an adjunct to arthroscopic surgical techniques for the best possible outcomes. As a true believer in the power of PRP and MSCs for orthopedic recovery, Dr. Bennett uses these treatments in his Sarasota, Venice, and Lakewood Ranch offices for enhanced recovery after orthopedic surgery as well as to prevent the need for surgery altogether.
PRP and stem cell treatments are similar, yet also quite different. PRP is simple and involves drawing the patient’s blood, spinning it down to isolate the platelets, then injecting it into the site of injury to stimulate the body’s natural healing response. PRP is usually more appropriate for repairing damage in smaller joints.
Stem cell therapy, bone marrow derived mesenchymal stem cells is the “gold standard” for regenerative orthopedic treatments. It is more involved and requires the extraction of bone marrow from the patient. The MSCs are then derived from the patient’s own marrow and injected back into the patient at the site of injury using ultrasound for precise placement.
Both PRP and stem cell treatments require specialized training, knowledge, and equipment to perform safely. Dr. Bennett is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon since 1996 and has been using regenerative medicine in his orthopedic practice since 2006…long before the mainstream ever heard the terms PRP or MSC. He is far ahead of the curve in using regenerative techniques for orthopedic issues and these decades of experience are what make the difference between Dr. Bennett and opportunistic practitioners trying to ride the stem cell trend.
While many companies now offer PRP or stem cell treatments, Dr. Bennett cautions patients to do their due diligence when deciding on a regenerative medicine practitioner. Many companies will falsely promise that their treatments will heal or cure orthopedic ailments that truly require surgery to correct. This is why using an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in regenerative practices is the only way to safely and effectively apply these treatments to orthopedic cases.
Another common risk of using budget providers offering stem cell therapy is the quality of the treatment. These cheap procedures are often done with ground up, prepared tissue instead of tissue derived from the patient themself, greatly reducing the effectiveness of the treatment and is not a stem cell procedure.
In the U.S., the only live MSC treatment that is allowed involves extracting the MSCs from the patient’s own bone marrow, separating and concentrating the stem cells, and then injecting the plasma-bound MSCs back into the patient…all during one sitting. This is the only type of stem cell treatment that Dr. Bennett performs as it ensures that the patient will receive the full benefit of the MSCs, not just the cytokines and growth factors found in pre-packaged tissue.
Dr. Bennett’s success in improving patient outcomes before and after orthopedic surgery has not gone unnoticed. Patients fly in from all over the world to receive Dr. Bennett’s groundbreaking treatments for their orthopedic problems. The reason? Results. Dr. Bennett is known for bringing patients relief and restoration of function like no other physician or treatment has before. Consider the case of a patient named Kyle, who experienced severe tendon injuries in one shoulder. After extensive research, Kyle decided to trust Dr. Bennett’s reputation and go with PRP and MSC augmented arthroscopic surgery to repair the injured tendons. Kyle from Texas does his due diligence and flew to Munich, Germany for surgical treatment by whom he considered after his research to be the best sports hernia surgeon in the world. With Dr Bennett – The result? Kyle says it best himself – “Within 6 weeks following treatment, my shoulder was pain-free with a range of motion which far exceeded others with the same injury treated by traditional methods.”
