Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy – PRP Injections for Pain – Hollywood & Miami, FL

26 Procedures ( View All )

Overview

Miami, FL board-certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Jeffrey LaGrasso now offers his patients platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections at his office. Using PRP taken from the patient's own blood (red and white cells plus platelets), it is applied via injection to joints with acute or chronic injuries. The growth factors in the blood are proteins that can help heal injuries more quickly. If you would like to learn more about how Dr. LaGrasso can apply PRP to your joints so that it can help repair an injury or decrease inflammation in your joints, call and schedule a consultation with him at your earliest convenience.

Treatment Technique

A small amount of blood will be taken from the patient and prepared into a PRP serum through centrifugation, and it will separate the platelets from other blood cells. Once the PRP is made, it can be injected into the site of the injury. This process can take a few hours to complete.

During/After Treatment

Patients may have mild redness in the treated area for up to 5 days. Some patients may notice other mild reactions, including burning, tightness, and skin flaking. Patients will be able to resume their normal activities immediately after their treatment, but heavy activity and exercise should be avoided for at least 24 hours.

PRP FAQs

WHERE CAN I HAVE PRP?

We use PRP injections in the joints to help with regeneration with the additional concentration of growth factors placed at the site of inflammation or injury.

DO I HAVE TO HAVE SURGERY?

No. We provide PRP for patients even if they have not had surgery on the injured area. Keep in mind, we can also use PRP for patients after they have had surgery on a joint to aid in the healing process.

Best Candidates?

The best candidates for PRP are patients that have tried other medications, physical therapy, surgery and other methods of recovering from sprains, injuries, and chronic conditions. These patients may want to try PRP to heal the area more quickly and improve their health.
