Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is one of the latest advancements in modern regenerative medicine that utilizes the patients’ own blood to significantly accelerate the healing process of tendon and ligament injuries. Common injuries, such as rotator cuff tears, golfers elbow, tennis elbow, meniscus tears, and hip labrum tears, have been shown to have an excellent prognosis after treatment with PRP. Platelets and plasma (the liquid plasma portion of the blood) contain an abundance of signaling factors that are essential for cell recruitment, multiplication, and specialization required for healing. Concentrating these cells in the millions is crucial to this process. Just like all wine are not the same, not all PRP are the same, and need to be collected and administered by an experienced physician in regenerative medicine to obtain the highest quality possible.
When the blood is spun in the centrifuge machine, the PRP separates from many other cells, such as red blood cells, that can cause inflammation and ruin the effects of the PRP if left behind. After the blood is spun, the PRP that has been separated must now be extracted by hand, and can be ruined if other cell factors are left behind. Since this is a manual process, it must be done by experienced clinicians who understand these processes. At Miami Wellness, we use the most advanced kits to ensure the concentration of the PRP is high enough to accelerate the healing process without needing to be done several times, saving patients time and money.
