What is PRP injection____

(injection of platelet-rich plasma)?

In this treatment, a small amount of patient blood is drawn and spun in a centrifuge. Spinning separates platelets from red and white blood cells, creating a platelet rich plasma (PRP). The plasma is then injected into the affected joint.
PRP injections cause very few side effects or reactions. Most commonly, patients feel soreness near the injection, as one might after getting shots.
Patients typically require 1-3 injections, with 4-6 weeks between injections.

____ Is PRP injection

right for me?

At GSO, we typically recommend PRP injections after other non-invasive or minimally invasive treatments have been ineffective. Our doctors are happy to discuss whether PRP or other treatments may be right for you.
