Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy, known as PRP for short, has been increasing in popularity due to the success shown in several research studies. There was a recent study out of HSS showing amazing outcomes for degenerative knee arthritis, with preservation of cartilage and significant pain relief. Results with rotator cuff tendonitis, tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis and knee/achilles tendonitis have also been excellent as well.
Athletes in all types of sports have benefited from PRP therapy including golf, tennis, basketball, football, baseball and more. Whether or not an athlete is professional or amateur, the PRP treatment can be instrumental in helping patients avoid surgery and get back on the field quickly.
PRP therapy at Beverly Hills Orthopedic Institute involves an outpatient procedure that begins with a simple blood draw from the patient's arm of approximately 30 to 60 millileters. The blood is placed into a centrifuge and spun rapidly for 15-20 minutes. The platelets become concentrated in the middle layer, and this is what is utilized for the platelet rich plasma therapy in Beverly Hills.
The PRP therapy is injected under sterile conditions into the painful area. Results are typically seen over the ensuing weeks. Along with the PRP treatment, Dr. Raj also offers bone marrow and amniotic stem cell therapy. Typically, the best regenerative medicine therapy option is decided upon in conjunction with the patient.
Dr. Raj is a Double Board Certified Beverly Hills and Los Angeles orthopedic surgeon, who is also an ABC News Medical Correspondent along with a WebMD expert. For those interested in PRP and stem cell therapy Beverly Hills trusts, call (310) 247-0466.
