They put their patients first! Their goal is to help you get back to living your life with improved body functionality and mobility as quickly as possible.
At Advanced Sports & Spine, they use state-of-the-art equipment. Their ultrasound and fluoroscopic guidance techniques ensure accuracy, help limit complications and increase success rates. Dr. Ahmad’s in depth training allows him to utilize this equipment to perform hundreds if not thousands of procedures every year safely. These techniques are used to perform regenerative medicine procedures in our private office.
Regenerative medicine is an interdisciplinary field of medicine. It is the process of replacing and re-growing cells and tissues to restore normal bodily function. Regenerative medicine includes platelet rich plasma and stem cell procedures. At Advanced Sports & Spine, they use the patient’s own blood and follow FDA minimal manipulation guidelines to ensure a safe and reliable procedure.
For platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections, the patient’s own blood is used to separate platelets in a centrifuge. The platelets are then re-injected into the injured area, releasing growth factors that promote natural healing.
Stem cell is an entirely different procedure which harvests undifferentiated cells or “baby” cells from the patient’s own bone marrow. This is typically taken from the patient’s hip and the marrow is placed in a centrifuge to obtain mesenchymal stem cells. These cells can be used to treat more serious or chronic injuries such as joint osteoarthritis. Once injected, stem cells follow inflammatory signals from damaged tissues and can differentiate into the type of cell needed to help restore or replace injured cells.
Their private practice is not annexed to or owned by a hospital facility, hence, they are a non-facility fee office. Thus, their patients pay less compared to having the procedure performed at a hospital. They also ensure minimal wait time in a comfortable environment.
Personalized patient care is what sets Advanced Sports & Spine apart. Dr. Ahmad and his caring clinical staff will provide you with an exceptional health care experience.
