    About the treatment Growth Factor Therapy:

    The Growth Factor Therapy treatment supports your body’s self-healing processes by using your own cells. Blood is mostly liquid (called plasma) but also contains solid component including red cells, white cells and platelets. The platelets are important for clotting blood but they also contain proteins called growth factors which are important in the healing of injuries.

    With a higher concentration of growth factors than typically found in blood, Growth Factor Therapy injections support the restoration of injured tissue and inhibit painful inflammatory processes.

    Growth Factor Therapy can delay or avoid the need for knee surgery. The treatments are minimally invasive, can decrease inflammation, stop the progression of arthritic damage and repair joint cartilage. The recovery time is also much shorter than with surgery.

    Frequently Asked Questions
    • What are the benefits of Growth Factor Therapy for joint pain?
    1. 1. The natural healing mechanism of the body is stimulated by growth factor therapy. The procedure is independent and does not require any foreign substance to enter the body.
    2. 2. Your own blood has an immense quantity of growth factors needed for rejuvenation & reproduction of healthy tissue. Growth factor injections activate such existing elements organically.
    3. 3. Surgeries can often be avoided in numerous MSK conditions through administering a course of growth factor therapy by gradual yet effective promoting of healthy & active tissue production.
    • How Safe is the Growth Factor Therapy Treatment?

    Growth Factor Therapy is a very safe procedure because it is Autologous which means it is extracted from your own blood. Therefore, there are no risks of rejection or allergic reaction. The only real risk of Growth Factor Therapy is contamination.

    At FAB Clinic, we use an enclose extraction system that eliminates open-air transfer containers, minimising any contamination.

    • How soon Growth Factor Therapy results will be visible?

    Results vary by the individual but on average 80% of results are visible in 2 -3 weeks. Full results will take 6 -8 weeks on average.

    • How Long Results will last?

    Growth Factor Therapy results will last on average of one year. In the case of orthopaedic Growth Factor Therapy (i.e., joint injections), results can be permanent as the environment within which joints operate will change permanently. After that they will slowly decrease, that is why we recommend at least one treatment per year and for best performance even 2 to 4 treatments per year.

    People with:

    • Cancer or metastatic disease especially hematopoietic or of bone
