How Does Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy Work?
Platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) refers to a concentration of platelets created from a patient’s blood sample. The procedure begins with the collection of 30-60 milliliters of the patient’s own blood, usually drawn from the arm. The blood sample is then placed in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the other components. The concentrated platelets are then injected into the patient’s site of the injury, using ultrasound guidance for precision.
