Is PRP right for me?
Recovering from a C-section is not always easy. The days following the surgery and the recovery period are known to be long and painful. Application of platelets and growth factors in a platelet gel provides a natural matrix for more rapid tissue regeneration enhanced by healing components. Patients and physicians are reporting less post-op pain and quicker return to normal range of motion after C-sections, resulting in happier, healthier new mothers.
In the United States, more than 350,000 women undergo major gynecologic surgery every year. Procedures that fall into this statistic include:
- Vaginal hysterectomy
- Abdominal hysterectomy
- Laparoscopic procedures
- Urogynecologic procedures
Like any surgical procedure, post-op healing and pain are major concerns for both the patient and their physician. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), if applied during and/or after surgery, will help to accelerate the body’s healing processes and significantly reduce the amount of recovery time needed.
