Regenerative Scaffolding


Regenerative Scaffolding

In the event of a major injury, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments are not sufficient in addressing the damaged tissue. Sometimes our surgeons see improvement by regenerating the scaffolding (the underling cellular layer). This treatment is also commonly referred as also known as fibrin matrix/graft. Depending on the severity of the injury, our surgeons will evaluate your medical needs and determine determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. Overall, our goal to is to work directly with our patients and provide the best care.


After an injury, your body sends messages to recruit cells, hormones, and clotting factors to repair the damage. In fact, you have seen this many times before. For example, even a simple injury results in inflammation (redness, swelling, and heat), which is your body’s mechanism to bring more blood, and therefore more platelets with healing properties to the area.

However, if a major injury occurs, sometimes the body does not have enough tools to completely repair the area. In turn, the combination of regenerative scaffolding and PRP treatments create a solid mesh to fill the empty injured space. Your body also uses a protein called fibrin to seal off the injured area. Through the innovation of modern medicine, our surgeons use the Hula Cup (which is a device used to concentrate your platelets and fibrin proteins). This combination supports the injured area quicker and get you back to your daily activities.

PROCEDURE (During Surgery)

1. The Injection Process

To fully address the injury, a combination of your blood and the Hula cup will be used. The fibrin mesh usually takes about 10 minutes to make, and is done in the operating room.

2. Expected Results

It has been our experience that most patients who used regenerative scaffolding treatments noticed less pain and their wounds healed at a significant rate.

3. Duration of Recovery

Recovery time for any surgery can vary depending on the type of surgery performed and the health of the person. While regenerative scaffolding treatments contribute to the closure and healing of the wound, the patient still needs to recover from the surgery done. The typical recovery for the person to regain full function from common podiatric or orthopedic surgeries is about 2-4 weeks.

Insurance information:

If you are considering regenerative scaffolding treatments, be sure to check your eligibility with your health insurance provider. There are a few insurance plans (including workers’ compensation) that provide partial coverage or reimbursement. However, if your health insurance does not cover these treatments we offer competitive prices and accept Care Credit as a financing option.
