Casa de Bienestar Integrative Health Center

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a treatment using your blood and platelets, accelerate wound healing, improve joint function, provide cosmetic skin improvements, as well as assist in regenerative healing in dentistry. 

At the Casa Bienestar Integrative Health Center,” we specialize in Orthopedic and Cosmetic treatments, which consists of placing an injection of the own platelets in the affected area. This may include a shoulder, elbow, knee, hip, ankle, foot, and spine. It can also help tendons and ligament issues such as a calcaneal spur, frozen shoulder, bursitis, tendon ruptures, and hypertrophic scars.

Platelets are very fragile and have a very short period of effectiveness once they are withdrawn from the patient. At our Health Center, we have a special laminar cabinet to minimize the risk of contamination and maintain the correct temperature, procedures, as well as a Medical team which includes Dr Juca, Dr Viviana Gomez (lab) and a certified nurse so the platelets can be prepared and reinjected promptly maximizing the effectiveness of the treatments. 

During your initial consult, Dr. Juca will do a comprehensive Medical History and Physical Exam and will order appropriate lab/blood work, which can be taken care of at our In-house Clinical Laboratory. Once your assessment is complete, he will recommend a treatment plan to address your situation. 
Fernando Juca, MD has a Masters in Biological Testing & Diagnosis with additional Certifications in Cellular Medicine, Molecular Diagnostics, Neural Therapy, IV Nutrition, Medical Marijuana, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Chelation. He is a Professor at Universidad Catolica de Cuenca teaching Pathology.

In a review of the US National Library of Medicine/NIH (NCBI.nlm.nih.gob/pub med) literature, recent research on “Platelet Rich Plasma Osteoarthritis” includes the following:

1. “Intra-articular Platelet Rich Plasma injection for Knee Osteoarthritis; a Summary of Meta-analysis” indicates PRP was “more effective in terms of pain relief and functional improvement in Knee Osteo-arthritis patients than hyaluronic acid(HA) and placebo with no difference in the risk of an adverse event between PRP, HA, and placebo.” (Journal Orthop Surgical Res, 2019 Nov 27; 14 (1):385.

2. “Effectiveness of platelet-rich plasma in pain management of osteoarthritis knee: double-blind, randomized comparative study”. Rev Bras Anestisiol 2019 Sep-Oct, 69(5) 439-477.
“The present study showed to reduce joint pain potentially-significant decrease in pain and stiffness and improvement of physical functions of the knee joint with intra-articular platelet-rich plasma injection as compared to normal saline.”
