Ultrasound guided PRP ( Platelet Rich Plasma) injection

  • PRP injections are a new effective treatment option that presents patients with a long lasting, permanent solution that will not wear off over time. PRP injections may help patients to avoid joint replacement surgery.

Blood is drawn from a vein in the patient’s arm using a syringe which is then processed using a centrifuge machine. Our consultant will then prepare the centrifuged platelet-rich plasma for injection. The affected area is then numbed under local anaesthetic and using the diagnostic ultrasound scan a small amount of platelet-rich plasma will be injected into the affected area.
