Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection
PRP or PLATELET RICH PLASMA, is an injection into the injured tendons.
It involves taking out a small amount of the patient's own blood, spinning it at a high speed in a specialized centrifuge, which then concentrates and separates a component of the blood called PLATELETS. The highly concentrated platelets are then injected into the injured tendons and muscles.
Platelets release numerous growth factors which help regenerate tissue to some extent and hence help in the repair of the injured tendon and muscle.
Here at FMIG we have installed the latest, fully automated equipment for concentrating and separating the platelets, with a completely closed system, thereby minimizing the manual handling of the blood and consequently the risk of infection.
Please talk to your doctor, physio or sports physician if this is the right treatment choice for your injury. Further details can be provided when you call our friendly reception staff.
