Therapy for meniscus tears using platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections has been shown to be very effective. This method of treating meniscus tears may reduce your need for surgery. PRP injections have been around for a while, but they are getting more attention as their use widens.

PRP is a concentration of platelets, a component of blood, that come from your own blood. Platelets are needed for blood to clot properly when there is an injury to the body. They also help heal wounds. It is thought that using a concentration of platelets at the site of an injury will help the injury heal faster. Professional athletes have been using PRP injection therapy for a while, for injuries received while playing.

Meniscus Treatment and Therapy

PRP therapy is used to treat tears and strains of the meniscus. Some of your blood is extracted and put into a centrifuge to separate the blood into three layers. One of these layers is platelet rich. This layer is extracted from the separated blood and used in an injection to promote healing and reduce pain symptoms.

The treatment is considered safe and is sometimes used as an alternative to surgery when conditions indicate it would likely be beneficial. Meniscus injuries have often presented challenges in healing, even with surgery. PRP injections seem to help. They appear to have a better rate of prolonged success than other treatment therapies.

Your doctor will determine when PRP therapy is the better alternative for meniscus repair and pain reduction. A thorough examination of the knee injury is required to make this determination. Contact the Advanced Healing Institute for more information on PRP therapy. You might be able to avoid surgery with this less invasive method of treatment.

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...

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.

Quite simple experience. Showed up to appointment, I was taken right away to room for PRP injection. Doctor was friendly and willing to try to help me, while many other doctors just told me they did not know what I had and told me they couldn't help my pain and sent me away. Nurse was quite nice as well. Will return for second set of injections for more pain reduction.

Chronic pain in shoulder and upper arm relieved by Dr. Reza's Lavage treatment using needling and ultrasound combined with Cortisone. Very professional, clean, nice office surroundings and friendly staff.

I took my wife to Dr Reza Dehdari to inject a PRP shot. He did a great job a such a painful shot but my wife did not feel a pain at all. He is very caring doctor. He called a few time to make sure everything is ok. We highly recommending him. Thank you Dr. Dehdari.
