PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma is the plasma portion of blood containing concentrated platelet cells. Platelets are specialized types of blood cells that initiate tissue healing. When the concentrated platelet solution (PRP) is injected into an injured tissue, it stimulates the tissue healing process. Treatment with PRP can significantly reduce healing time and eliminate the need for medications or surgery, at a fraction of the cost.
