What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?

PRP is a regenerative treatment option that involves using the patients own blood to promote healing. As we age the body’s inherent ability to heal tissue in certain areas is diminished. By using PRP, the ability to repair damaged tissue increases greatly. We do this by drawling your blood and spinning it down in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the red blood cells. These concentrated platelets along with the growth factors in this portion of the blood send out signals which call in he body’s healing cells. There is a wide variety of conditions that can be treated with Regenerative Medication. Just a few of them are listed below.
