PRP Injections for Meniscus Tears

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.

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.
