Platelet Rich Plasma Injection

When seeking a truly exceptional plastic surgeon, Los Angeles residents from Beverly Hills to Santa Monica and across the region have come to trust David A. Feldmar, MD. The Beverly Hills native brings an artist’s eye and the studied hand of an expert surgeon to patient’s seeking aesthetic face, breast, skin and body procedures that range from breast reduction or augmentation to remarkably effective platelet rich plasma injection.

Often abbreviated as PRP injection, platelet rich plasma injection is a treatment that is used for some common orthopedic conditions. Although blood is mainly a liquid, it contains small solid components, like white or red blood cells, and platelets. PRP is a concentration of platelet cells taken from the blood, and these platelets have growth factors that may help in the healing process of chronic injuries. Simply put, the platelet growth factors are chemicals that signal the body to initiate a healing response. When injected into an injury, the platelet rich plasma treatment can stimulate and optimize the body’s ability to heal the chronic conditions.

When performed by Dr. Feldmar, the platelet rich plasma injection will usually be given as soon as the blood has been spun and the platelets separated. For many patients, one injection is all that is necessary to see a substantial – and truly remarkable – difference. Yet, depending on the patient’s specific needs, sometimes the platelet rich plasma injectionsnecessitate a span of several weeks to prove successful. Yet, regardless of how long it takes for the treatment to take full effect, the precision and impeccable skill of Dr. Feldmar ensure that side effects are very uncommon.

Various studies have shown that platelet rich plasma treatment can prove very effective in the healing process. For several decades, PRP has been used in operating rooms to help with healing and stimulate bone formation in spinal fusion surgery. The procedure is also frequently utilized for professional athletes and others suffering from Achilles tendonitis, rotator cuff tendonitis, tennis elbow and patellar tendonitis.
