A regenerative medicine therapy that harnesses the body's natural ability to restore and amplify the innate healing process

PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP)

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses injections of a patient's platelets to accelerate the healing of damaged areas in the body such as tendons, muscles, ligaments and joints. This type of regenerative medicine harnesses the body's natural ability to restore and amplify the innate healing process.

To prepare for the PRP injections, a medical professional will draw the patient's blood and place it into a machine that will separate the platelets from the plasma. Once the process is completed, our interventional specialists will inject the patient's own platelet-rich plasma into the injured or diseased area.

 

Patients will begin to see results in as little as 2-6 weeks depending on their condition. Side effects of PRP injections are limited due to the injections coming from the patient's own blood. 

 

WHAT ARE THE COMPONENTS

Plasma is the liquid portion of blood that transports red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets throughout your entire body. 

Platelets are blood cells that play a major role in the body's natural healing procedure.

WHY PLATELETS

Platelets are a type of blood cells that circulate throughout the human body and bind together when they recognize damaged areas. In their "non-active" form they are actually shaped like plates. In their "active" form they transform into a shape that resembles a spider or octopus, causing clotting and beginning the body's healing process.
