Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP is an injection therapy that uses the body's own growth factors to repair soft tissues. The first step involves a simple blood draw. The patient's blood is then processed using an FDA-approved device to concentrate plasma and platelets. The resulting platelet-rich plasma is then injected into the effected tissue. Platelets and white blood cells within plasma are directly introduced to the tissue where they release growth factors which encourage remodeling and repair. PRP can be an effective treatment for chronic or recurring pain due to damaged tendons, ligaments or cartilage.
PRP can be used to remodel scar tissue and fibrotic adhesions, making it extremely effective in the treatment of Peyronie's Disease and other similar conditions.
