A heart condition can affect your entire body, and you’ll need to take action quickly after being diagnosed. But cardiac surgery can be a terrifying prospect, and when bypass surgery is not an option, finding other alternatives to open heart surgery can be just as intimidating. But what if there was a way to harness your body’s own ability to heal in order to restore your heart?
Greyledge supports cardiologists in offering the most cutting-edge cell therapy available to those who are seeking an alternative to bypass surgery and angioplasty, and to those who are looking to support their recovery from cardiac surgery with biologic treatment. Made using technology at the forefront of regenerative medicine, our PRP and BMC preparations allow your cardiologist to tailor your treatment to your individual needs.
Greyledge will enable your cardiologist and primary care provider to offer you custom support for your heart. Ready to take your life back? Talk to your doctor about Greyledge today, or find a Greyledge-partnered cardiologist near you.
Greyledge’s capabilities include supporting cardiologists with a number of cutting-edge preparations, including platelet-rich plasma, or PRP. Here’s how the process of creating PRP works:
PRP stimulates your body’s natural ability to heal. This can be extremely useful in helping your body restore itself following heart surgery, particularly in the process of sternal closure.

Stem cells are unique in the fact that they don’t just serve one predetermined purpose. They exist at a stage in which they can transform into any other type of cell, allowing them to become whichever cell is necessary to restore the tissue compromised by your heart condition, and they can even rally other cells to do the same.
In this way, bone marrow cellular concentrate (BMC) can help your cardiologist offer a non-invasive alternative to traditional open heart surgeries. Here’s how we prepare BMC:
The abilities of the stem and progenitor cells found in bone marrow aspirate makes BMCC extremely valuable in allowing your body to reconstruct damaged elements of your heart, potentially without the need for surgery.
Prolotherapy involves injecting a sugar-like irritant (dextrose) into an area where a patient is experiencing pain. Like PRP, prolotherapy is known to stimulate healing -- however, unlike PRP, it involves the injection of a completely foreign body into the affected area, as opposed to the patient’s own plasma. Greyledge’s preparations contain only autologous (your own) plasma.
Any type of cardiac surgery can benefit from the support of cell therapy, as PRP and BMC can assist in the quick, effective recovery of surgical incisions and other wounds. Additionally, heart transplants can be supported with the use of PRP.
