Osteoarthritis is a condition that causes pain and stiffness in joints. The smooth surface that lines the end of the bone starts to thin and roughen. The cause of osteoarthritis may be related to an initial injury caused to the cartilage and accelerates as time goes on. In most instances, it is unclear as to why arthritis develops. The repair capabilities within the joint are unable to deal with this degeneration and result in pain and swelling. Management of arthritis has traditionally involved pain killers and joint replacement. Osteoarthritis can occur at any age and may be related to overuse.

Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP
Platelet rich plasma or PRP is an innovative new treatment in sports and orthopaedic medicine and uses your own blood for healing muscle, tendon and ligament injuries. A small amount of your blood is placed in a filtration system, which separates your red blood cells from plasma and platelets. This plasma contains high concentration of your own body growth fractures which are injected into your injured tissue and initiates your body’s natural healing response. Your procedure will be carried out at our Harley Street out-patient department.
This treatment is widely researched and supported in clinical papers – see our evidence section to find out more.
