Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an alternative to surgery that uses one's own body to restore damaged tissue and joints. PRP injections are made up of plasma that has higher levels of platelets than regular blood, thus increasing growth factors. A sample of blood is drawn from the patient and spun at high speeds using advanced medical equipment, separating the platelets from other elements to result in a high concentration of platelets. The platelets are then injection into directly into the problem area which expedites the healing process and treats many soft tissue injuries. PRP is commonly used to treat knee arthritis, osteoarthritis, joint stiffness, and inflammation.
