PRP Instillation has been used to treat to treat a number of musculoskeletal injuries involving tendon, ligament, cartilage and bone. Do develop a PRP preparation, blood is drawn from a patient. The platelets are then separated from other blood cells and their concentration is increased through centrifugation.
This increased concentration of platelets is then combined with the remaining blood. Lab studies have shown that the increased concentration of growth factors in PRP may help speed up the healing process.
As this is a non-surgical process, there will be no hospitalization, no scarring and minimal side-effects.
This orthopedic procedure is commonly used to treat knee pain (in early stage osteoarthritis), plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, rotator cuff injury, tendinopathies and sports injuries. PRP is also used to treat non union in fracture management.
