Watch the video below to hear our Consultant Surgeon, Mr Ali Noorani explain more about PRP therapy.
The healing of injured or inflamed tissue involves a complex and precisely regulated series of natural processes within the body. Thrombocytes (platelets) play an important role in this process. At the site of injury they release growth factors that initiate the restoration of injured tissue and inhibit painful inflammatory processes. PRP therapy is based on our understanding of these complex processes. With its high concentration of growth factors PRP injections support the body’s self-healing processes.
