Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP is a non invasive procedure to treat inflammatory and chronic conditions. From a small volume of the patient’s own blood taken in our office, we can capture the majority of the patient’s platelets. The system we use is recognizes the density between platelets and red blood cells. Under centrifugal force we collect and trap the platelet rich layer. Regardless of the hematocrit of the patient, we can automatically collect a consistent, high platelet count for each patient right in our office under ultrasound guidance!
There is no cutting, no stitches, no operating room. Just a small amount of your own blood to help heal your foot and ankle conditions!
