What is PRP Therapy

 

Dr Nathan Wei
PRP is properly prepared

Platelet-rich plasma or PRP is an ultrafiltrate of whole blood that contains a large number (approximately two million) of viable living platelets. Multiple in vitro and clinical studies have demonstrated the potential of PRP to heal damaged tissue as a result of the tremendous amount of growth and healing factors present in the alpha granules of platelets.

 

When a patient is seen for a PRP procedure, the PRP is properly prepared so that the platelets are viable. Then, using strict aseptic technique, the PRP is administered with precise ultrasound guidance using special fenestration and “bevel up” curved needle methods. PRP, in our hands, has helped scores of people with chronic tendonitis, bursitis, and fasciitis to recover and to regain mobility.

 

“I was living on pain medications, and I could barely walk. It was about 20 minutes before I could actually get up to start the day. Dr. Wei performed a new procedure on my hip and I was amazed at how quickly and painless the procedure was done. I feel so much better, and now I’m ready for him to perform this procedure on my knees. I recommend this procedure to everyone because it really works.”
