Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Our Board Certified pain management doctor in Dallas offers regenerative therapies including bone marrow derived treatment and platelet rich plasma (PRP).

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is super-physiologically concentrated platelets and growth factors that stimulate healing and regeneration of injured tissues, muscles, tendons or ligaments. PRP is derived from your own body and is 100% natural. PRP injections are an increasingly popular alternative to surgery because of the great results patients of all ages are obtaining. Whether you are an elite athlete or a “Weekend Warrior,” regenerative therapies, including PRP, are an effective and safe nonsurgical therapy to treat forms of acute and chronic pain.

Our office has been on the forefront of regenerative injection treatments as one of its early adopters. Our team of board certified regenerative medicine specialists has been able to give some patients relief who have otherwise been disabled due to pain. While this is by no means a miracle it does hold promise to improve the lives of patients who have been told that surgery or pain medications are their only choice.

The Process of PRP Therapy

Blood Collection

A small amount of blood is drawn is from the patient’s arm.

Platelet Separation

The sample goes for a “spin” in a centrifuge, separating the platelets from the rest of the blood.

PRP Extraction

The patient’s own platelet-rich plasma is carefully extracted from the test tube.

Injection

The PRP is injected into the injured area. Using the concentrated platelets, we increase growth factors up to eight times to promote healing and reduce inflammation.
