Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) \\

Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, is a biological solution to decreasing inflammation and promoting healing of tissues.  It harnesses your body's own natural healing mechanisms rather than using medications or chemicals, such as steroid injections.

  • A small amount of the patient's own blood is centrifuged (spun) to isolate and concentrate the platelets

  • Platelets contain various growth factors, including PDGF, VEGF, TGF-B, all of which are integral to healing

  • Natural anti-inflammatory molecules in blood are also concentrated and help decrease joint pain

  • Our system achieves 6-9x concentration above baseline platelet levels, delivering over 1 million platelets per milliliter of blood.  This is among the highest of all PRP systems available

  • For tendon injuries, white blood cells and platelets can be concentrated to promote healing

Consider PRP if you: \\

  • Want a biological solution to your joint pain

  • Have osteoarthritis

  • Have tennis elbow

  • Have patellar tendinitis

  • Want augmentation of surgical repair at the time of surgery

  • Have muscle, tendon, or ligament injury

  • Want to potentially accelerate healing times and tissue integrity
