Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a cutting-edge treatment for treating injuries or conditions of the hip. PRP is a concentrated portion of the patient’s own blood which has a higher concentration of platelet and vital growth factors which both help in repairing injured tissue. Additionally, platelets contain Vitamin K which plays a major role in the formation of blood clots which also help in the healing process.
PRP has shown promise in stimulating repair of body tissues including tendons, ligaments, and cartilage.
