How It Works

Platelets are the clotting cells of our blood. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is the use of the body’s own defense mechanism to repair itself. The body’s first response to injury is to deliver platelets to the affected area. Packed with growth and healing factors, platelets initiate the repair mechanism and also attract the stem cells needed to help our tissue repair by itself.

Platelet rich plasma, intensifies this effort by delivering a much higher concentration of platelets to the affected area. A normal blood specimen contain around 6% platelets. Platelet rich plasma contain 94% platelets and 5 to 10 times the concentration of growth factors found in normal blood, greatly enhancing the body’s healing properties.

Procedure

The procedure involves drawing a small amount of blood as done for any other lab test. The blood is spun down by a centrifuge at high speeds in order to separate the platelets form the other blood components. The PRP is then injected to the site of concern, whether it be an injured muscle, joint, tendon or ligament.

Precision is very important in this procedure. The use of ultrasound imaging guidance helps ensure that the maximal amount of PRP is delivered to the exact location, increasing the effectiveness of the procedure. PRP can help heal cartilage, tendon, muscles and even bone. It is a great and effective method in relieving pain without having to stay in a hospital, going through a long recovery process, or undergoing the risks of surgery.

Had the PRP procedure and I have to say no pain at all, going on 6 weeks, if you decide to have the PRP listen to Dr. Dehdari's instructions thoroughly and do the physical therapy, it works and I am so pleased and it's getting better and better as days go on, Dr. Reza Dehdari is the best and very emphatic in explaining all your questions soothing away your doubts, and he checks up on you to make sure all is well, after the PRP procedure. Very trustworthy PRP procedure and his assistant Sandy is also the sweetest caring person you will ever meet. I'm a satisfied customer and patient.

Went to see Dr. Dehdari for information about PRP treatment, on my hip, and he was able to explain the procedure and really explained it all very well. I had the PRP treatment performed over a month ago, and it has helped so much. Most of the pain in the hip is now gone and I no longer walk with a limp. If your looking for information about PRP, I would definitely recommend co silting with Dr. Dehdari.

I have been suffering for years with knee pain due to over use and years of playing sports. But after seeing Dr. Dehdari and getting treatment my pain is gone and I have never felt better. I am back to doing the activities I love. I got an appointment right away and he was very caring and paid attention to what I had to say.

This is the natural way of letting the body heal itself with the help of an expert like Dr. Dehdari. I tried everything else -- steroids, cortisone, etc.; nothing worked. Then one visit to Dr. Dehdari and my tennis elbow is gone. Highly recommend him and this procedure.
