Advanced Healing Treatments for a Faster, Easier Recovery
Whether you are recovering from an injury or one of our advanced surgeries, Dr. Aron D. Rovner, MD, wants the process to be as quick and convenient as possible. For this reason, he proudly offers several advanced healing treatments at his New York and New Jersey offices. These treatments can significantly expedite your recovery time, allowing you to return to a normal schedule and full range of activities. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy and stem cell therapy use your own cells to promote blood flow and tissue development. At New York Spine and Sports Surgery, we also offer MLS® Laser Therapy to stimulate your body’s own healing processes. These treatments involve negligible risks and minimal discomfort.
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
Platelets, found naturally in your blood, have important healing functions. When you are injured, your body sends platelets to the area, and they contribute to the formation of blood clots. To perform platelet rich plasma therapy, Dr. Rovner first takes a blood sample. Then he puts the blood in a centrifuge to isolate the pure, healing platelets. He then injects the platelet-rich plasma into the injured area. With the higher number of platelets, your body will be able to recover faster, and you could enjoy significant pain reduction.
These common types of injuries can benefit from platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy.
PRP may be appropriate if you are suffering from any of the following conditions:
- Torn rotator cuff
- ACL injury
- MCL injury
- Herniated disc
- Pulled muscle
Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cells are unique because they can adapt to become any type of tissue in the body. Therefore, Dr. Rovner can use stem cell therapy to treat many types of injuries, including severe joint damage. Using a liposculpting procedure, Dr. Rovner removes approximately 60 to 120 ccs of fat from your abdomen. After isolating the stem cells, Dr. Rovner mixes them with growth factors from your blood before injecting the cells into the treatment area. The stem cells will help heal your joint and regenerate the surrounding ligaments and muscles. This treatment involves very few risks because it utilizes your own cells. It will also involve minimal discomfort, and scarring will be virtually invisible. In most cases, you will require just one session of stem cell therapy.

MLS® Laser Therapy
The human body has an incredible ability to heal itself. When you have sustained an injury, your body will increase blood flow to the area. In turn, this boosts the number of platelets and other healing cells, resulting in new tissue growth. The MLS® (Multiwave Locked System) laser speeds this process and promotes healing at the cellular level. The cold laser penetrates to the deeper layers of tissue to improve tissue growth. The laser energy also enhances blood flow and reduces inflammation. As with our other advanced healing treatments, MLS® therapy involves very little discomfort. This technology reduces recovery time and helps patients get back to the activities they enjoy sooner.
Dr. Rovner may use the MLS® laser to treat the following conditions:
- Sprained joint
- Degenerative joint disease
- Swelling and discomfort after surgery
