Platelet rich plasma has become a very viable NON-SURGICAL option for patients seeking improvement of sports related injuries or for rejuvenation purposes. Although, there are other applications, our medical team focuses on the use of PRP for body injuries.
When the human body is centrifuged and separated into its components, the top layer is composed of plasma. Immediately below, there is a very thin layer that contains very important growth factors like:
These are only some of the components that are contained in this layer of the separated blood. Our lab and medical team work in conjunction in order to isolate said growth factors, in order to re-infuse them into the injured area (i.e. the knee joint). The important concept here, is that these GROWTH FACTORS are essential in the healing of injured joints. This makes PRP therapy great for patients that are not quite ready to undergo a surgery.
Some common areas that are addressed with PRP therapy:
Anesthesia: Local (if needed)
OR time: 10 to 15 minutes
Recovery time in hospital: Ambulatory
Recovery period after discharge: 2 to 4 weeks
