PRP Therapy - promotes long lasting healing for a host of orthopedic issues, by using the regenerative power of your own body.

Platelet Rich Plasma is simply what is sounds like, a plasma that is highly concentrated with platelets.  Although blood is mainly a liquid called plasma, it also contains other components such as red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.  PRP contains many more platelets than what is normally found in the blood.  Platelets are most commonly known for their importance in clotting blood; however, they also contain hundreds of growth factors which play a crucial role in the healing of wounds, soft tissue injuries, fractures, and pain relief.

WHAT IS PLATELET-RICH PLASMA?
HOW CAN IT HELP ME?

Naturally, the body's first response to a soft tissue injury is to deliver platelet cells.  Filled with growth and healing factors, platelets initiate repair and attract the critical assistance of nearby stem cells.  PRP treatment works by accelerating the body's natural healing process by injecting a high concentration of platelets to the injured area to jump-start and strengthen the healing process.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

PRP therapy is a conservative, low risk, and non-invasive treatment that can help with many orthopaedic conditions such as arthritis, tendon injuries, and ligament injuries anywhere in the body.  It can eliminate and/or prolong the need for more aggressive treatments such as long-term medication use and surgery.  PRP supports the long-term healing of your injury rather than quick, temporary relief from your symptoms.

HOW IS PLATELET-RICH PLASMA OBTAINED?
A centrifuge for seperating blood at KOPI

The first step in this process is to draw and obtain a small amount of blood from the patient and process it in a centrifuge.  This device separates the blood and allows us to collect and set aside the platelets to inject into the problem area.  Once separated, we numb the area to be treated and target the injury using an advanced imaging technique (ultrasound guidance) and inject the platelets into the problem area.
