PRP Treatment NYC by Dr. Louis Rizio
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment • According to Wikipedia, “Platelet-rich plasma (Abbreviation: PRP) is blood plasma that has been enriched with platelets. As a concentrated source of autologous platelets, PRP contains (and releases through degranulation) several different growth factors and other cytokines that stimulate healing of bone and soft tissue.” (Wikipedia. Platelet-rich Plasma. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Platelet-rich_plasma) • During the past few years, PRP has been used by famous athletes for treating various injuries, and it’s stated that they have been able to heal faster by using PRP rather than therapy, medication or even surgery (in certain cases). • PRP can be injected directly into the affected area to speed up healing process after an injury or surgery.
