What is PRP? PRP (or platelet-rich plasma) is a type of regenerative medicine that uses the body’s own blood to heal, repair, and restore damaged tissue.
PRP is used to relieve a wide variety of conditions such as:
- Joint pain
- Knee pain
- Hair loss
- Sexual dysfunction
- Urinary incontinence
Our Sugar Land doctors use PRP to help relieve pain and improve our patient's lives.

What is a PRP Injection?
PRP injections are created through a simple process.
- A small blood sample is drawn from the patient
- The blood sample is then spun at high speeds in a process called centrifugation, separating the red blood cells and the plasma
- The plasma, rich in platelets, is drawn into a syringe and turned into a PRP Injection
- The PRP injection is injected in the area in need of healing or revitalization
The blood’s plasma contains platelets. Platelets are the body’s natural healing mechanism. When you obtain an injury, like a cut, your body signals plasma to pool in that area. This is the clear liquid you will see accumulating around a cut. This plasma contains platelets that cause the blood to clot, stopping the bleeding. Plasma also contains growth factors that help the body heal.
PRP injections heal the body in the same way. By injecting PRP in areas that need healing, the body can help repair, replenish and revitalize damaged or degraded tissues. This basic principle makes the treatment effective for a wide range of conditions, such as healing underlying damage due to joint pain and restoring thinning hair.
