What is the process for PRP?
PRP is concentrated from your own blood which contains healing factors, such as white blood cells and bioactive proteins, called growth factors and stem cell markers.
These cells are vital for tissue regeneration and repairs. Platelets once thought of being responsible for only clotting, have been proven to be a reservoir of these vital healing components.
With advance techniques, Sparrow is able to concentrate these regenerative healing cells in a simple outpatient setting.
How is PRP obtained?
A small of amount of blood is taken from the patient and placed into an FDA medically approved container. This sterile disposable container is placed in a specialized centrifuge for spinning. This separates the whole blood sample into “layers” of platelet-rich-plasma and red blood cells. The plasma is aspirated from the red blood cells and is injected into the localized area(s) of concern.
How does it work?
In the healing process, PRP signals for stem cells and regenerative cells to repair and rebuild. This accelerated process reduces pain, promotes increased strength, and improves overall function.
How long does a PRP Therapy take?
Procedure Time-No longer than an hour with the majority of the time used for processing.
