WOUND CARE

Did you knowPRP is frequently used to treat chronic wounds that fail to respond to traditional wound care techniques. Various health conditions may lead to the development of chronic, non-healing wounds due to reduced peripheral blood flow. PRP stimulates regeneration and formation of capillaries and accelerates epithelialisation and has been shown to reduce wound closure time and costs associated with various types of chronic, non-healing wounds.   Learn how PRP aids in and enhances many natural regenerative processes in the body.

Is PRP right for me?

All wounds rely on blood flow to heal. Inherently, our extremities receive diminished blood flow due to their distance from our heart muscle moving blood through our body. Patients who suffer from diabetes, peripheral artery disease, or who smoke have even further diminished blood flow throughout their extremities. These patients often have chronic non-healing wounds.

Wound care and wound healing can be long, drawn out, and expensive processes.  The concentrated platelets and growth factors in PRP have been shown to greatly expedite the body’s ability to heal itself. PRP allows physicians to deliver growth factors (that would otherwise possibly never arrive where needed) in a concentrated form to jump start the healing process.

With various effective delivery techniques for wounds of all shapes, sizes, and locations, PRP has been proven to shorten wound healing time and reduce both cost and complication.

How does PRP work?

Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP is an autologous blood therapy that uses a patient’s own blood to stimulate a healing response in damaged tissues. The body’s normal healing processes are dependent upon blood flow. Whether an open cut or a micro tear in a tendon, the body signals for and recruits platelets to the area of injury, releasing growth factors and stem cells to initiate healing and regeneration.

Today’s technology allows us to sequester and concentrate platelets from your blood and initiate that same healing process, in an accelerated fashion, by increasing the baseline concentration of platelets by four to seven times. PRP delivers a powerful dose of growth factors to the injury site and dramatically enhances the healing process.

If surgery is required, PRP can be used to:

  • Reduce inflammation and bruising
  • Increase range of motion
  • Reduce risk of infection
  • Reduce scarring
