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.

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.
