You already know the benefits of doing viscosupplementation injections for osteoarthritis. Recent studies now show that PRP (platelet rich plasma) injections could also help to produce more hyaluronic acid (HA) in your joints and contribute to, protect, and postpone (if not cancel ) the need for future surgery. I have been using PRP injections with success with many patients suffering from tendon or ligament tears but the literature now supports its use in damaged joints. In brief, PRP involves withdrawing your own blood, extracting the healing factors, and injecting it back in your body. I plan to offer PRP injections in conjunction to Viscosupplementation to all those of you interested. Here are several articles for those of you who want to know more about it. Feel free to contact the front desk for more details about the PRP procedure.
