WHAT IS PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP)?

Your blood is not all cells but is predominantly made of a fluid called plasma in which your red and white blood cells are suspended. Also floating in the plasma are cells called platelets and their role is to clot the blood to stop a bleeder. In addition, platelets have proteins called growth factors that would be responsible for the healing and regenerating powers after damage to a blood vessel wall. Your blood is not all cells but is predominantly made of a fluid called plasma in which your red and white blood cells are suspended.

In addition, platelets have proteins called growth factors that would be responsible for the healing and regenerating powers after damage to a blood vessel wall. Growth factors are the key to the increased healing time and dramatic pain relief of PRP therapy that has proven successful in a variety of conditions as a stand-alone line of treatment or in conjunction with stem cell therapy:

   • Tendon or ligament injuries
   • Joint injuries
   • Osteoarthritis
   • Skin Rejuvenation
   • Scars
   • Hair thinning & Hair loss

Even when surgery could not be avoided in certain cases, the use of PRP therapy in conjunction has an added benefit to a speedy recovery due to its healing and anti-inflammatory effects.A sample of blood is withdrawn from you and as the name implies we separate the platelet rich plasma from the rest of the blood. This concentrate is then injected locally into the treatment area and LET THE GAMES BEGIN.
