Leaders in Regenerative Treatment
Platelet Rich Plasma
The body’s natural reaction to an injury is to send platelets from the blood to damaged tissues to initiate healing. Platelets store a vast array of growth factors which are released at the site of injury through cell signals received from the injured tissue to mediate healing. To perform this treatment, we place a small amount of your blood in a filtration system, which separates your red blood cells from the platelets. The high concentration of platelets is then injected into your injured tissue, which initiates your body’s natural healing response. The autologous PRP treatment, therefore, uses your own concentrated platelets and growth factors to stimulate and enhance the body’s own healing response to treat acute injury, inflammation or chronic degenerative disease. This results in minimal discomfort. Since PRP is prepared from your own blood, there is no risk of rejection or disease transmission and virtually no risk of infection.
