PRP therapy is a common name for Platelet-rich plasma therapy which involves the use of injections of a concentration of a patient’s own platelets to accelerate the healing of a particular problem area. During the treatment, the doctor will take anywhere from one to multiple tubes of the patients own blood and run it through a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets. The doctor will then inject this concentrated centrifuge into the injured or diseased body tissue. This releases natural growth factors that stimulate and increase the number of reparative cells your body produces.

About The Treatment

What is platelet-rich plasma (PRP)?

PRP is a product of blood that contains a high concentration of platelets, which are cells that help with clotting and healing. PRP also contains growth factors that can stimulate tissue regeneration and repair .

How is PRP made and administered?

PRP is made by taking a blood sample from the patient and spinning it in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from other blood components. The platelet-rich plasma is then injected into the target area, such as an injured joint or tendon, or the scalp for hair loss treatment . Sometimes, ultrasound is used to guide the injection.

What are the benefits and risks of PRP therapy?

PRP therapy may help to speed up the healing process, reduce pain, improve function and enhance cosmetic outcomes for various conditions, such as sports injuries, osteoarthritis, wound healing and hair loss . However, PRP therapy is not a cure and may not work for everyone. The results may vary depending on the individual, the type and severity of the condition, and the quality of the PRP product. The risks of PRP therapy are generally low, as it uses the patient’s own blood and does not introduce foreign substances. However, some possible side effects include infection, bleeding, bruising, nerve damage and allergic reaction at the injection site .
