Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) To Repair Joints and Muscles
Ready for a safe, effective way to avoid surgery and still get a major repair on an injured joint, tendon, or muscle? A scientific breakthrough known as Body Tissue PRP Repair uses your own blood plasma with highly concentrated platelets to create Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). Platelets are part of your blood system, and are a specialized type of blood cell involved in the rapid healing of injuries. Platelets also contain large reservoirs of natural growth factors as well as stem cells. A version of PRP repair was recently performed on Tiger Woods’ knee, when his physician gave him an injection of his own blood products to help Woods recover faster. This is what we call “baby” stem cell therapy.
PRP contains remarkable healing properties that helps a body to regenerate and repair tissue. With our highly refined technique, we can localize the injury and inject it in the proper location. In the blood stream minute quantities of stem cells travel around the body. Through the use of PRP we utilize concentrated stem cells to repair and remold scar tissue in a safe and effective procedure.
In the platelet concentration process, seven fundamental protein growth factors (also called cytokines) are condensed:
- Platelet-derived growth factors – PDGFaa, PDGFab, PDGFbb
- Transforming growth factors – TGFb1, TGFb2
- Vascular endothelial growth factors – VEGF
- Epithelial growth factors – EGF
This concentrate also contains three proteins in the blood that act as cell adhesion molecules: fibrin, fibronectin, and vitronectin.
Clinical data has shown that the concentration of growth factors may help optimize conditions for bone, muscle, cartilage, and tendon healing. Ponder this scenario: You are enjoying a day of skiing down the slopes, and you fall and tear a quadriceps muscle. Ouch! You see the orthopedic surgeon and you are told to stop working out or participating in any demanding activities for the next 4-6 months. He says that you might need surgery, and will most certainly have a long-standing painful injury.
What if you could get 2-3 injections of your own healing factors, never have to undergo surgery, and heal completely in 6-8 weeks…leaving you just as you were before it happened? With PRP, this scenario becomes a reality!

How is Platelet Rich Plasma Made?
PRP is collected by drawing 30 cc (just about two shot glasses) of blood (500 cc is taken in blood bank donations). The blood is then put into the Harvest SmartPReP®2 Platelet Concentrate System and spun down, separating the red blood cells, plasma, and concentrating the platelets.
Is Platelet Rich Plasma Safe?
Since Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is autologous (from your own body) there is no chance of rejection or adverse effects. It is also FDA approved.
