Home » » Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy

PRP therapy is a low-risk form of regenerative medicine that is beneficial in treating injuries, chronic conditions and promotes healing.

How does it work?

Platelet rich plasma is obtained when red blood cells are removed from whole blood and isolating platelets. In order to gain access to platelet rich plasma, a blood sample is first taken from the patient. The centrifuge, specifically designed for separating blood platelets, is then used to place the blood in it. The PRP is concentrated with platelets and proteins after the removal and disposal of red blood cells. It can now be utilized in PRP therapy by injecting it into the affected site to further advance healing and reduce inflammation.

Are there side effects?

To administer the PRP , the patient will need sedation because the treatment involves injecting the substance into the affected site or joint. The side effects are minimal and are closely related more to the blood draw for the sample. It can potentially include bleeding, irritation, soreness or bruising at the injection site.If the patient’s age or past medical history raises concerns for additional risks with sedation and anesthesia, the veterinarian can discuss these risks during the consultation.
