What is platelet-rich plasma (PRP)?

PRP is a concentration of platelets and growth factors created from a small amount of your own blood or bone marrow. These are injected to the site of injury where it may induce the release of growth factors and stimulate the repair process and speed healing.

How does PRP work?

Your provider will withdraw a small amount of blood from a vein in your arm. This sample is placed in a centrifuge, where it undergoes a high-speed spinning process that separates and concentrates the platelets and other beneficial growth factors from other blood components. The entire PRP production process is usually done in less than 30 minutes.
