Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is also known as Autologous Conditioned Plasma. PRP takes advantage of the blood’s natural healing properties to repair damaged cartilage, tendons, ligaments, muscle and bone. It can reduce pain, improve joint function and help you return quickly to normal activities.
Mr. Ali Noorani: “Rotator cuff surgery is relatively predictable and works in about 90% of cases. However, the bigger your tear, the poorer your tendon quality and your general health means it is the less likely to heal. Therefore, quite often once surgery has fixed the mechanical problem of the tendon, we often offer patients biologics like PRP and AMPP to enhance the healing and recovery of the patient. We are finding that the use of biologics to enhance healing is making the repairs heal faster and more predictably. There is now good evidence behind this in randomised control trials to show this effect of faster healing.“
