Platelets have amazing attributes that, when activated, enhance tissue-healing process. Growth factors and stem cells are the key regenerative aspects found in platelets, as are many other elements which can reduce inflammation and speed healing.

According to a new blog published by Terri Suresh-DeNeui, MSN, APRN-BC; founder of Hormonal Health, Wellness and Aesthetic Centers (future Evexias Medical Centers), platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy - - used in the rehab of many professional athletes, including NBA star Kobe Bryant, PGA golfer Tiger Woods and MLB player Alex Rodriquez - - has also become popular for those ‘weekend warrior’ athletes who might over-do the activity and end up with ligament tears, muscle strains and sprains, and even joint injuries. PRP has also been shown help accelerate healing of non-athletic injuries and minor surgical procedures.

“PRP is plasma, the part of our blood left when we take the red cells out; it is highly concentrated with platelets,” Suresh-Deneui explained.

“Platelets have amazing attributes that, when activated, enhance tissue-healing process. Growth factors and stem cells are the key regenerative aspects found in platelets, as are many other elements which can reduce inflammation and speed healing.

“When you take this plasma and remove the red blood cells, you have an amazing serum which can do incredible things for the healing process.”

Per Suresh-Deneui, PRP has been around for a long time, but has really gotten a lot more attention in the last decade. “Over the past several years, what we’re finding is that it’s NOT that the PRP works in some people and doesn’t work in others, it’s all about how it’s concentrated,” she said. “Many medical studies support what we have found; there is a difference in the potency of PRP based on the manner in which the serum is concentrated.”

At one time it was thought one could simply remove the red cells and what was left was platelet rich plasma, however that is not the entire picture. The key is spinning down the plasma twice in specialized machines to concentrate the highest number of platelets in the plasma.

“Our approach is to draw the blood from the patient, spin it down in a specialized centrifuge, which initially separates the red blood cells from the plasma,” Suresh-Deneui said. “We draw off the red cells and what we have left is a golden-colored substance, the plasma. The plasma is then spun down again, which further separates the platelets and the white blood cells from the plasma. Left is about 7 ml, or 1 and 1/2 teaspoons, of the ‘platelet rich’ plasma and that is where the ‘gold’ is! If you don’t have the technology to concentrate the platelets in this manner, you may not get much of an effect.”
