What are BioD® Benefits?
BioD® is a natural alternative to synthetic, animal or cadaveric derived regenerative medicine products. The primary functions of BioD® are to cover and protect the wound and to provide soft tissue repair and regeneration through the presence of growth factors and stem cells naturally found in placental tissue. BioD® is designed to facilitate the migration of the patient’s own cells to the injury site, leading to an increased rate of healing.
BioD® rarely evokes an immune response in patients since placental tissue is considered “immune privileged.” All donors are pre-screened through an extensive medical review and evaluation of pre-natal tests to help assure safety for all future BioD® recipients.
BioD® is recognized as a versatile wound healing allograft since it can be applied directly onto the skin or injected directly into the injured area. At OPTIMAL Pain & Regenerative Medicine, BioD® placental stem cells are commonly used as a wound covering in the treatment of tissue defects while PRP is used to expedite wound healing.
