Platelets

At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we offer Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy as a non-surgical option for people with chronic pain and joint injuries. It is part of our biologic treatment methods in sports medicine. With this type of therapy, we can eliminate painful and disruptive symptoms surrounding your joints.

What are platelets?

Platelets (also known as thrombocytes) are circulating cells within your blood. They bind together when they recognize damaged blood vessels, and thereby create a blood clot. They are the smallest of our blood cells and they can only be viewed under a microscope. Under a microscope it is seen that they have no cell nucleus and they have the shape of a plate.

Why are platelets used in PRP Therapy?

Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy uses the natural strengths and tendencies of your platelets to provide a solution for conditions such as arthritis and ligament and tendon sprains and tears. When the concentrated platelets are injected into the damaged site, natural tissue repair occurs and healing is accelerated.

How do you prepare for PRP Therapy?

You must have PRP preparation before the procedure. You blood is drawn and your platelets are separated from your other blood cells while their concentration is increased during the centrifugation process.

Is PRP Therapy right for me?

PRP Therapy is a non-operative solution for many patients. It is long lasting and effective for many of our patients at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians. To see if you are a good candidate for this type of therapy, schedule your consultation with one of our expert physicians at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
