The human body’s natural healing processes are highly effective. When you become sick or injured, your body automatically deploys a complex combination of cells and proteins, including specialized "growth factors," designed to help your injured tissue respond and restore itself. Using the most advanced technology in the field, Greyledge allows physicians to replicate, amplify and fine-tune this process, creating a custom therapeutic for their patients.
Greyledge has created a technology platform that supports a variety of physicians in providing platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments to their patients, from injection with the latest cosmetic treatments to supportive implantation into a joint after an orthopedic injury. PRP is made with each patient’s own blood, and when injected or implanted back into damaged tissue, it can stimulate the body’s natural healing process*. Using highly controlled, manual processing methods in a state-of-the-art processing facility coupled with fully-documented and validated cellular analysis of the product, Greyledge gives medical providers and cosmetic specialists a systemized approach to offering their patients superior cell therapies available in the field of Regenerative Medicine.

An essential element of autologous cell therapies, your blood is the high-speed transit system that carries essential nutrients, proteins, oxygen, and cells throughout the body. Here are some quick facts about your blood:
The cutting-edge process of using platelets as a natural therapeutic involves the production of platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, using components which can all be found in your own blood. Here’s how it works.
PRP is produced when autologous (your own) whole blood is separated into 3 layers:
The PRP products Greyledge creates are made by separating your whole blood in a centrifuge, then collecting platelets and white blood cells if indicated from that blood. What’s unique about Greyledge’s process? It can be customized to target a specific concentration or total dose of platelets to meet each patient’s individual needs. That means the finished product can be produced with the exact composition your physician requests. We know this because we measure every cell and platelet in our products to verify that they are within target parameters to provide the best chance for success.
Physicians from a wide variety of disciplines can benefit from utilizing Greyledge.
Physicians have utilized PRP in many of these applications:
In addition to these conditions for which PRP is a proven solution, more and more studies are being conducted every day that support its use as a tool for:

PRP is broadly applicable to many problems throughout the body, and researchers are continuing to collect data on its various capabilities. Physicians and joint injection specialists use PRP to treat orthopedic injuries and control both inflammation and pain. Many patients receiving PRP treatments have found success with hip injections, injections to the knee, and PRP injections to the shoulder, just to name a few. PRP can also be applied to surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures, dermatological applications, hair restoration, and even the treatment of sexual dysfunction.
Prolotherapy involves injecting a concentrated sugar or salt-based solution, acting as an irritant into an area where a patient is experiencing pain. Like PRP, prolotherapy is known to stimulate healing -- however, unlike PRP, it involves induction of a minor injury to the affected area to stimulate the body to send healing factors and cells to the affected area, as opposed to directly implanting the same concentrated healing proteins and cells directly into the target region. Greyledge exclusively creates PRP products using autologous (your own) blood tissue.
