Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is a revolutionary new treatment that relieves pain by promoting long lasting healing of musculoskeletal conditions. The healing properties of PRP therapy are attributed to the increased concentration of growth factors and secretory proteins that enhance the healing process on a cellular level. PRP therapy has gained recent popularity because many professional athletes find the beneficial benefits of this therapy allows them to return to the playing field with rapid healing of their condition.

Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is a safe and effective treatment for a number of injuries and even osteoarthritis. It’s natural because it uses the patient’s own blood, separating the blood’s components and then injecting only the platelet-rich plasma directly into the injury or joint while the needle is guided by ultrasound technology. Because the patient’s own blood is used, there is little to no chance of contamination or rejection by the patient’s body. It jumpstarts the healing process because the plasma goes directly where it is most needed. The procedure takes only about an hour or two in a doctor’s office, and is a fraction of the cost of surgery.

What is the cost of PRP Therapy?

As PRP injections get popular, more and more people are seeking the treatment to avoid surgery. The largest obstacle for the prospective PRP Therapy patient is the fact that insurance does not cover the procedure.

However it turns out that an out-of-pocket PRP injection is still cheaper than a free surgery, and most often it’s the treatment of last resort before opting for surgery.

 

As research and technology continues to catch up with this cutting-edge technique, PRP therapy may become more available at even more economic prices.  For now, the cost of PRP injections, nationwide, is:

  • $500 At Minimum
  • $650 – $800 Average
  • $1,000 Maximum

Normally, 2-3 injections are needed to reach full benefit over as many months.  This means that full cost for a full PRP therapy course can be anywhere between $1,000 and $3,000.

Now, to compare PRP therapy’s application to ACL damage with the alternative of a single surgery, $1,000 – $3,000 is normal just for the surgeon’s fee.  This does not account for anesthesia, hospital stay, or the lengthy physical therapy that comes after the surgery.  This puts the average cost of ACL surgery around $8,000, but costs of $20,000 or even $50,000 is not uncommon.

 

What Conditions are treated with PRP?

Common Orthopedic conditions treated with PRP include conditions involving shoulder disorders involving arthritis, bursitis and rotator cuff repairs, tendonitis such as tennis elbow, achilles tendon, heel spur syndrome, osteoarthritis of the knee including anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries, hip and spine, pelvic pain and instability, back and neck injuries, ankle sprains, tendonitis, and ligament sprains.

How PRP Therapy Helps

Platelets are a normal part of our blood and called to action when there is damage to blood vessels in our body. These specialized cells are packed with numerous growth and healing factors that initiate repair and attract the assistance of stem cells that also greatly promote healing.

PRP therapy’s natural healing process intensifies the body’s efforts by delivering a higher concentration of platelets. This platelet-rich plasma contains a 3-5 fold increase in growth factor concentration.

How Long Therapy Takes

The procedure takes approximately one to two hours and is performed safely in our office without the risks of surgery, general anesthesia, or hospital stays. In fact, most people return to their jobs or usual activities right after the procedure.

 

What To Expect During My Office Visit For Treatment

The PRP process involves the collection of a small sample of blood (similar to a lab test sample). This blood is placed in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from other cells in the blood such as red and white blood cells. The concentrated platelet rich plasma (PRP) can now be collected and is then injected into and around the point of injury, jump-starting and significantly strengthening the body’s natural healing signal. Because your own blood is used, there is no risk of a transmissible infection and a very low risk of allergic reaction.

Expected Results Of PRP Therapy

Because the goal of PRP therapy is to resolve pain through healing, it could prove to have lasting results. Initial improvement may be seen within a few weeks, gradually increasing as the healing progresses. Research studies and clinical practice have shown PRP therapy to be very effective at relieving pain and returning patients to their normal lives. Both ultrasound and MRI studies have shown definitive tissue repair after PRP therapy, confirming the benefits of this healing process. The need for surgery can also be greatly reduced by treating injured tissues before the damage progresses and the condition is irreversible.
