What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?

Platelet Rich Plasma is Game Changing! A concentrate of platelet-rich plasma protein derived from whole blood, and spun at variable speeds to remove red blood cells.
The Platelet rich plasma has a greater concentration of growth factors than whole blood, and has been used to encourage an accelerated healing response in the injured area.

Platelet Rich Plasma has a wide use in Sports medicine and Orthopedics including but not limited to the arthritic joints (Knee, Shoulders, hips etc) and spine as well as soft tissues including the injured ligaments, tendons and Muscles.

How does this procedure work?

Unlike some Stem Cell procedures, the source is drawn from the patient’s own blood. In other words, PRP is autologous!
The patient should be able to donate at least 60 ml of their own blood; therefore, hydration is very important and severe anemia is a contraindication to this procedure.

The blood is then processed for PRP resulting in the highest concentration of different growth factors and other cytokines that can stimulate healing of soft tissue and joints.
The procedure takes about 30 – 60 minutes depending on the ability to donate the required amount of blood. Final results of healing following the procedure may take up to 4 to 6 weeks. 25% of the results are achieved at about week 2

How many treatments will i need?

Each condition affecting the soft tissues, joints and spine are different and require different healing time. Soft tissues require less healing time and growth factors over the bones of the joints and spine.

Therefore, treatments can range from 1 to 4 treatments. The patient is evaluated at week 2 to monitor progress of the initial procedure and then follow-up ensues at week 4. A repeat procedure is determined at week 4 of the initial procedure.
