While the use of platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy for pain relief and the healing of various musculoskeletal conditions is not new, specific variables relating to treatment are often left up to the doctor. For instance, while most orthopedic and sports medicine physicians can make accurate injections into certain joints without the need for imaging, the amount of plasma as well as the specific location of the injection makes a difference in the effectiveness of treatment. Therefore, when it comes to PRP injections for arthritis, it is wise to consider the experience and success rate of the physician in treating arthritis using PRP injections, and whether he or she uses technological guidance to ensure a precise injection.

Imagine the case of a patient with osteoarthritis in his knee. Using a small sample of the patient’s own blood that is spun in a centrifuge machine, a doctor isolates the patient’s blood plasma. The plasma contains proteins, nutrients, glucose and antibodies, and by itself, does not contain healing properties. Yet, when injected, the platelet rich plasma (PRP) releases growth factors that encourage cell division and signal tissue regeneration and healing.

While one patient’s blood plasma differs from the next patient (due to blood composition and additives), ARTHRITIS-health explains that PRP injections address arthritis by inhibiting inflammation, stimulating the formation of new cartilage, increasing the production of natural lubricating fluid in the joint and altering a patient’s pain receptors so that pain sensation is reduced.

Even so, it all comes down to treatment protocol, placement and precision. The use of imaging technologies, including ultrasound guidance, ensures a precise injection. What’s more is that the usefulness of treatment relies upon the injections being made directly into the joint capsule.

Dr. Reza is a genius. My knee has been bothering me for YEARS since I tore my meniscus playing football. Achy, bothersome, with occasionally a limp. I went into to get PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and it was everything I thought it would be and then some. The whole procedure took less than an hour, very little to no pain and in less than 24 hours my knee felt brand new. If you are looking for a quality Doctor who offers PRP -- go here! The rates are very on point. He is literally THOUSANDS of dollars less than some other clinics and believe me he does such an amazing job, he could charge 10x's and it would still be worth it. Don't sit there suffering, get up and get help. I am actually thinking of getting my other knee done and its not really necessary. Lol.. 10 STARS...

Dr Reza is FANTASTIC. Staff is friendly and very accommodating. I was in such pain. He diagnosed the issue (Bursitis) and clearly understood everything about it from A-Z. So efficient and understanding, not to mention making the procedure painless. I barely slept a hour the night before, saw Dr. Reza at 5pm and was feeling a million times better by 7pm. It's been 36 hours and I went from practically a frozen shoulder in pulsating pain to gaining back 70% of my movement range and most importantly "NO PAIN". just stiffness which is the normal symptoms as kindly explained to me by Dr. Reza. Everything is as promised, I am fully confident that I will be back to 100% range of motion within 3 days. I'm still gonna take it easy and slowly stretch my shoulder back to full strength. Without his service, I would probably be feeling like I was hit by a truck laying in bed miserable. Thank you very much Dr. Reza for helping my aging old bones. Cheers!

This place is amazing. I took my aunt to Dr. Dehdari since she was in so much pain to her left knee due to Arthritis Dr. Dehdari explained to us about PRP and after the PRP procedure she has no more pain. When we went there she was using a cane but right now she doesn't use it at all. PRP works miracle.

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.

My son went to see Dr. Reza for a shoulder injury he received from repeated use due to training. My son had tried physical therapy and a cortisone shot with little success. Dr. Reza thoroughly explained the benefits of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and he felt confident he could help my son. The procedure itself is amazing and my son was comfortable the entire time. I LOVE the fact that my son's own body was healing itself without the use of drugs. His shoulder is so much better and he was able to resume training after two weeks. I would highly recommend the PRP shot with Dr. Reza and will definitely see him again if the need arose.
