Force multiplying your own healing mechanisms through safe, non-invasive, cutting-edge technology.

Whether you are a weekend warrior or a professional athlete, an injury that keeps you from being active is devastating. Old school treatments for soft tissue and joint injuries require weeks to months of rest, rehabilitation, medications or invasive surgery.

After 28 years of performing Orthopedic surgery, I am beginning to change my thinking. Although surgical procedures can often fix these problems, what if there is a better way? Is there a treatment plan that uses your own natural healing mechanisms that is safer, less expensive, requires less down time for recovery and one that is much less invasive than a major operation?

I believe there is.

Platelet Rich Plasma ( PRP Injections) is a revolutionary treatment modality in the new field of regenerative medicine. PRP uses your own blood and healing properties to magnify your own natural healing response. Platelets, tiny cells found in your own blood, are the “First Responders” of the entire “Healing Response Cascade” and quickly arrive at the scene of a broken bone, a torn ligament, a strained muscle or an inflamed joint to jumpstart many natural processes in your body in order to begin the healing process.

The novel technique of PRP magnifies the healing response by centrifuging your blood and reinjecting a concentrated amount of your own platelets into the injured area. It's a classic force multiplying business principle and 1-10x phenomenon.

And it works!

There is a reason that athletes like Tiger Woods and Kobe Bryant have used PRP. If it's good enough for the pros, why is it not good enough for you? In many cases, PRP therapy actually speeds up the recovery process and can get you back in action 50% faster than traditional physical therapy, medications or surgery.

In my opinion, PRP offers a very logical, low cost and low risk first step.
