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.
