How It Works
Treatment using platelet rich plasma taps the regenerative ability of the body’s own platelets. Platelets release bioactive substances that trigger the body to induce healing. Some of these substances trigger stem cells to come to the area of need to help.
We use a system in which we derive the platelet rich plasma from your own body. A technician will draw a vial of your blood. We will then process the specimen in our lab by using a sterile method to separate undesirable blood cells from the desirable blood cells. The platelet rich concentrate is then injected into the joint or tendon by a board-certified surgeon.
Using our own lab and high-tech equipment gives us the ability to perform the procedure the same day your blood is drawn.
