Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

PRP provides a high concentration of growth factors which are required within the body to promote tissue healing. PRP is a blood plasma with concentrated platelets (the body’s repairmen for damaged tissue). The concentrated platelets found in the PRP contain huge reservoirs of bioactive proteins, including growth factors that are vital to initiate and accelerate tissue repair and regeneration.

Platelet-rich plasma injections are outpatient procedures. Because the patient's blood must be drawn and prepared for injection, a typical procedure may take anywhere from 45 to 90 minutes.
