Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

Harness the healing power of your own blood

What is platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a cutting-edge technique that uses your body’s natural healing abilities to speed injury recovery and reduce pain.

Platelets are components in your own blood that play an important role in clotting. Research has shown that they also contain proteins that can help heal orthopedic injuries.

With PRP therapy, we can concentrate your own platelets and inject them directly into the injured area. This regenerative treatment promotes tissue repair, reduces inflammation and enhances overall function.

Who is a candidate for PRP therapy?

You might benefit from PRP therapy if you have an orthopedic condition that hasn't responded well to other treatments.

Your doctor will assess your individual condition and needs to determine if PRP therapy is right for your personalized treatment plan.

What to expect during PRP treatment

  • Before the treatment
    • Our team will take a sample of your blood from your arm and place it into a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the plasma.
    • We then prepare the PRP for injection.
  • During the treatment
    • We inject your own PRP into the affected area, guided by ultrasound imaging.
    • You may feel a slight pinch or discomfort during the injection.
    • The procedure is relatively quick.
  • After the treatment
    • Follow your doctor's instructions.
    • You can expect results within a few weeks to a few months.
    • The effects can last for several months.
