Why PRP?

  • Less side effects when compared to steroid injections or surgery
  • Longer lasting
  • Natural and organic; from your own body
  • Speeds up and promotes healing
  • Minimal to no down time
  • Minimally invasive

PRP is from your own blood, autologous, so there is little to no risk when conducted by a trained professional. Since the cells are autologous there is no risk for an allergic or immune reaction. Side effects or complications with PRP are extremely rare.

What is PRP?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is concentrated from your own blood which contains healing factors, such as white blood cells and bioactive proteins, called growth factors and stem cell markers. These cells are vital for tissue regeneration and repair. Platelets, once thought of being responsible for only clotting, have been scientifically proven to be a reservoir of these vital healing components. With advanced techniques we are able to concentrate these regenerative healing cells in a simple outpatient setting.

Are there risks?

PRP is from your own blood, autologous, so there is little to no risk when conducted by a trained professional. Since the cells are autologous there is no risk for an allergic or immune reaction. Side effects or complications with PRP are extremely rare.

How is it obtained?

A small amount of peripheral blood is taken from the patient and placed into a FDA medically approved container. This sterile disposable container is placed in a specialized centrifuge, for spinning, to separate the whole blood sample into ‘layers’ of platelet rich plasma (PRP) and red blood cells. The PRP layer is aspirated from the red blood cells and is injected or applied, under sterile conditions, into the localized area of abnormality.

How much does it cost?

This is an innovative therapy and currently, insurance companies are not covering it. Therefore, it is a self-pay procedure. Costs may vary, depending on the number of treatments you may need, and a deposit is required. Payments through CareCredit are welcome. Call 928-774-7757 and we would be happy to discuss options with you.
