PRP

PRP,  also known as Platelet Rich Plasma, is used to help aid and enhance the recovery of injuries to soft tissue and arthritic conditions (tendons, ligaments and cartilage). Patient’s blood is drawn, placed in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from other blood components.  These concentrated platelets contain a very generous reservoir of bio-active protein, which includes growth factors that are essential in initiating and accelerating tissue repair. The goal of bio-active proteins is to stimulate the wound healing process of connective tissue and stimulate the development of new blood vessels.
