Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment
Platelet rich plasma, commonly referred to as “PRP’, is a non-operative, permanent solution for conditions such as spinal conditions, arthritis, and orthopedic ligament/tendon sprains and tears. Utilizing the body’s natural healing process, PRP therapy is a concentration of the patient’s own platelets that is injected into the damaged ligaments, tendons, and joints to promote tissue repair and accelerate healing. PRP contains growth and healing factors which means an injured individual can get back to a pain-free life in a fraction of the time that it would usually take.
Regenerative medicine research shows that the formulation of the platelet-rich plasma in the injection is a direct factor in the success of the treatment.
While most providers inject PRP at a set formulation for every patient, we use a unique protocol that personalizes the composition and concentration to the patient and condition being treated to achieve the best possible outcome. State-of-the-art injection equipment enables a higher precision of the injection itself, resulting in better results.
Since PRP treatments are developed according to each patient’s specific needs, procedure costs vary. Thankfully, much of the regenerative medicine treatments are now covered by many insurance carriers. However, our team has some of the most accommodating plans on hand to assist with all patients’ needs if there happens to be any out-of-pocket expense.
