Be treated by the Faculty and developers of cellular therapy technology!
Experience and knowledge count when evaluating whom to choose for your procedures. Joseph F Greco, PhD, PA/C and Greco Hair Restoration have been in the forefront of using biologic medicine for improved treatment procedure results.
About Biologic Medicine and cellular therapy:
Cellular Therapy includes Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), Cytokines, Extra Cellular Matrix’s, stem cell’s from Bone Marrow Aspirate (BMA) and Adipose Derived Stem cells (ADSC) or fat transfer. These new treatments can regenerate damaged human cells and lead to faster healing. “Self-Regeneration” therapy offers a safe promising solution to accelerate healing of tendon/ ligament injuries, spinal pain and osteoarthritis naturally without subjecting the patient to significant risk. The goal is to merge cutting edge technology with the body’s natural ability to heal itself. If a patient has undergone traditional therapy that failed, Cellular therapy may be used to heal acute and chronic injuries and many times avoid surgery. PRP is used in surgery to both “seal and heal” and may be use after surgery to promote more rapid healing.
Platelet rich plasma has also been utilized in hair restorations surgery since 2004 and its role is expanding, as more physicians understand the benefits in this surgical procedure. While still experimental, the use of Cellular Therapy in patients as an adjunct treatment to thicken hair is gaining popularity and has been used since 2007. Double randomized independent studies are ongoing to further evaluate the efficacy of its use for this purpose, but because it is autologous (same donor) it is a safe therapy. The use of PRP in hair restoration surgery has multiple advantages. Carlos Uebel, MD first demonstrated that the use of PRP leads to increased follicular unit yield by 15.1%. Numerous studies have demonstrated the use of PRP in hair transplantation leads to diminished scalp erythema, crusting, decreased patient discomfort, swelling, accelerated hair growth and increased size of follicular units. In 2007, Dr. Greco suggested utilization of PRP in donor sites to promote quicker healing, less scarring and infusing PRP into the recipient site to promote vascularization to the new transplanted follicles.
Since PRP treated patient’s hair matured sooner than non-transplanted patients, a study was done in 2008 to ascertain effects of PRP on non-transplanted hair and it indicated increased hair diameter in the PRP treated group.

Patent pending IP in cellular therapy Developed Non surgical treatments for Hair loss diseases We are the only three generation Family in the world performing Hair Restoration Based on the above information why not schedule a free consultation now?
The best way to evaluate a patient is to arrange a personal, in-depth consultation. However, this is impossible for many patients who fly in from other parts of the country or world. For this reason we have developed the remote consultation package, which is an acceptable alternative to the in-person personal consult.
Once your photos and questionnaire are reviewed, we will telephone you to discuss your questions or concerns regarding the procedure. You will also be given a suggested treatment plan and the costs involved. Click here for more complete information on our free on-line hair restoration consultation process.
