Orthopedic pain has prompted many people to undergo invasive procedures,
but that is all changing thanks to revolutionary new treatments like PRP—platelet
rich plasma—therapy. This regenerative procedure treats your injury
with a concentrated infusion of your own healing platelets. Watch this
video to learn more about how
platelet rich plasma therapy in Marietta works.
To perform PRP therapy, orthopedic doctors draw blood from you, and then
process it in a centrifuge to create a concentrated mix of plasma and
platelets. This mix contains agents that speed healing. Next, the doctor
performs a PRP injection into the injured area to encourage healing. Orthopedic
doctors can often achieve results with a single PRP injection, but severe
injuries may require multiple treatments.
