How Is PRP Produced?
What Should I Expect During My Treatment?
First, we will scan the area to determine the exact tissue that is damaged and in some cases will administer a diagnostic lidocaine injection. Using a small needle, we draw a small amount of blood, then it will be processed in our lab while you wait. Once it is ready, our physician will inject it directly into your damaged tissue.
Depending on the nature of the injury, you may need more than one PRP treatment to achieve the desired/optimal outcome. Dr. John Broussard will outline the treatment plan and map out exactly what you will need to do following the treatment including activity modification and incorporation of high quality physical therapy.
