Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment & Therapy
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is also known as Autologous Conditioned Plasma.
PRP takes advantage of your 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.
We have a limited capacity this week for our orthopaedic consultants to call you for a free 10 minute phone consultation to discuss your condition and answer your questions directly. Please click here and complete the form to book your session.
What conditions can be treated?
The procedure is performed in our out-patient clinic and can take up to an hour to complete. The 3 main steps of the procedure are outlined below:
The treatment is generally administered at three weekly intervals. Since the treatment is prepared from your own blood, the treatment carries a low risk.
The number of injections required depends on the injury but can range from two to six injections which are performed at weekly intervals.
PRP technology - Endoret® prgf®
Endoret® (prgf®) technology is the most advanced autologous PRP system. It is based on the activation of your own platelets for the stimulation and acceleration of tissue healing and regeneration. It is scientifically effective and safe, with over one hundred scientific articles published in specialised journals and its presentation at hundreds of congresses.
How It Works
PRP supports your body’s self-healing processes by using your own cells. Blood is mostly liquid (called plasma) but also contains solid component including red cells, white cells and platelets. The platelets are important for clotting blood but they also contain proteins called growth factors which are important in the healing of injuries.
With a higher concentration of growth factors than typically found in blood, PRP injections support the restoration of injured tissue and inhibit painful inflammatory processes.
This treatment is widely researched and supported in clinical papers. See our PRP evidence section.
