Our Sugar Land doctors provide PRP as a treatment option for a wide range of pain relief and aesthetic purposes.
Regenerative medicine is:
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
This form of regenerative medicine uses the blood to help heal damaged and degraded tissues within the body. Healing damaged tissues can help relieve pain, relieve sexual dysfunction, and / or relieve urinary incontinence.
Our doctors use PRP for:
- Joint Pain
- Knee Pain
- Hair Loss
- Sexual Dysfunction
- Urinary Incontinence
The blood is made up of two main parts, red blood cells and plasma. The plasma contains platelets and growth factors. Platelets help the body heal by clotting the blood and signaling the body to start repairing damaged tissues.
PRP treatments are created from the patient's blood, where concentrated platelets and growth factors are turned into an injection. These PRP injections are introduced into areas of the body that needs healing. The platelets and growth factors boost your body's healing mechanism to help relieve a wide range of conditions to improve your life quality.
Regenerative Medicine at The Park at Sugar Creek
After one of our primary care physicians assess you, they will explain to you how PRP can help with your condition. The procedure is simple, and many patients do not experience discomfort during treatment.
During PRP treatment, you will give a small blood sample.
- This blood sample will be spun at fast speeds until the red blood cells and plasma separates
- The plasma will be drawn into a syringe, creating a PRP injection
- Depending on your condition, the PRP will be either injected in an area in need of healing or microneedled in thinning hair areas
- The plasma will then go to work healing and restoring tissues, relieving pain, strengthening tissues, and encouraging new growth
