PRP - Cutting Edge Treatment

PRP stands for Platelet-rich plasma, Platelets contain special factors called growth factors that can help the body in the natural healing process. These factors can help stimulate repair and healing of damaged tissue leading to decreased pain and symptoms. Because PRP comes from your blood there is no rish of rejection or allergic reaction.

What is the process for PRP?

Platelets are cells in our blood which carry factors that signal surrounding tissue to regenerate. Platelet rich plasma injections are done in our office.

This can lead to a natural healing of the patient's painful structures. There is no risk of rejection of the product since it is prepared from the patient's own blood. The injection is often done under ultrasound guidance to ensure proper location of the product. The whole process takes about a half hour and the doctors block off special time dedicated to it.
