Forget the incisions and stitches, PRP therapy heals your body with your own proteins and growth factor.
Unlike invasive treatments with a long recovery, PRP is quick and puts you on track to improvement.
PRP therapy uses your own blood to create a concentrated serum that’s perfectly tuned to your biology.
If you have arthritis or pain in your joints, ligaments, or tendons, and it hasn’t responded to surgery or other therapies, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) can be the breakthrough you need.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a minimally invasive, regenerative medicine treatment that uses platelets and plasma from your own blood to heal soft-tissue injuries and alleviate pain. Because it collects and concentrates your body’s natural healing catalysts, you can experience true organic regeneration at the cellular level directly where you need it most.
Dr. Barreto actually offers Plasma Rich in Growth Factors (PRGF), which is an activated form of PRP and even more effective since the growth factors are released prior to injection. It can work wonders for the persistent injuries that nag at you every single day. Don’t spend weeks, months, or even years tolerating sore knees, elbows, or other joints when the healing process can be started in as fast as an hour.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy works by isolating the platelets in your own blood and precisely injecting them into injured joints, tendons, or muscles. The process begins with a blood draw which is then processed in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets and plasma. The solution contains nearly 2000 proteins, also known as growth factors, that heal injuries, relieve inflammation, and eliminate pain.
Dr. Barreto has an extensive track record of success with using PRP therapy to heal patients whose quality of life has been reduced because of nagging injuries or chronic pain. Whether your pain is new or old, an Orthobiological treatment like PRP can help to bring relief and true restoration so that your life stops being limited by aches and pains.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is an outpatient Orthobiological procedure performed in our Orlando, Florida clinic. Dr. Barreto begins by drawing a small amount of blood — one-half to two ounces — from your arm into a syringe, which is then processed with a centrifuge to clean, activate, and optimize the PRP so it releases growth factors, which are then injected.
These growth factors are available immediately. After the injection, they form fibrin that liberates the growth factors for 10 to 14 days, producing both short- and long-term effects. The appointment typically takes 45 to 90 minutes depending on the location of the injuries and how many areas of the body are being addressed since multiple areas can receive Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment at the same time.
If sore joints, muscles, or tendons have been slowing you down, now is the time to take control and get back to being you. Contact Dr. Barreto for a personal evaluation to determine if PRP can help you.
