PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Injections:  

PRP Injections are the process of removing a small amount of a patient’s blood (a few tubes), separating platelets from the whole blood, and then injecting the platelets back into the patient. The injection site varies by patient, depending on the area of pain and discomfort, but can be used on elbows, knees, neck, back, shoulders, wrists, hips and ankles.

We understand surgical treatments can be painful, require longer recovery time, and a significant decision for patients, so we offer non-surgical treatment options like PRP Injections, to help alleviate pain and promote healing of injured muscles, joints, ligaments and tendons. PRP Injections have shown to rebuild soft tissue and cartilage, and reduce inflammation.

Benefits of PRP Injections:

  • Your body will not reject the treatment, since it uses your own blood
  • Outpatient procedure that can be done directly in the office, so no hospitalization is required
  • When used in conjunction with surgery, it can reduce recovery time
  • Helps reduce pain due to joint arthritis, tendonitis, muscle injuries, and other ligament issues
