PRP Therapy in Orlando
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is an innovative treatment option for a wide range of conditions, from chronic pain to sports injuries. At Orlando Hand Surgery Associates, we offer PRP therapy in Orlando to all of our patients who are good candidates for the procedure.
Our expert team of doctors provides nonsurgical regenerative medicine procedures at our new facility, Orlando Center for Regenerative Medicine. Our doctors here take an individualized approach for each specific injury and condition in order to determine the best treatment plan for your situation.
What is PRP Therapy ?
PRP therapy, a gentle and effective treatment, harnesses the remarkable healing properties of your own body. This minimally invasive approach promotes tissue regeneration and speeds up the healing process.
During the procedure, a small amount of your blood is carefully extracted and processed in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets. These platelets, which contain growth factors and healing proteins, are then skillfully injected into the affected area.
By delivering a concentrated dose of platelets directly to the injury site, we activate the body's natural healing response. These tiny cells play a vital role in clotting and healing, releasing growth factors that stimulate cell growth and tissue repair.
With PRP therapy , we facilitate the rejuvenation and restoration of damaged tissues, helping you heal and recover more quickly.
Different Conditions PRP Therapy Treats In Orlando
A wide range of conditions and injuries of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, ankle, and foot can be treated using this therapy at the Orlando Center for Regenerative Medicine.
PRP joint therapy in Orlando is a non-surgical treatment option for osteoarthritis, a condition that causes joint pain, stiffness, and swelling. PRP injections can help reduce pain and improve joint function by stimulating the growth of new cartilage and tissue.
Tendinitis is a common condition that affects tendons, the thick cords that attach muscles to bones. PRP injections can help reduce pain and inflammation in tendons by promoting the growth of new tissue.
Tennis elbow and golfer's elbow
Tennis elbow and golfer's elbow are conditions that cause pain and inflammation in the tendons of the elbow. PRP injections can help reduce pain and improve function by promoting the growth of new tissue.
Rotator cuff injuries
The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder joint. Rotator cuff injuries can cause pain, weakness, and limited mobility in the shoulder. PRP injections in Orlando can help reduce pain and promote healing by stimulating the growth of new tissue.
Ligament injuries, such as a sprained ankle or a torn ACL, can be slow to heal and may require surgery. PRP therapy can be used to promote healing and reduce pain in ligaments by stimulating the growth of new tissue.
What to Expect During PRP Therapy
This therapy is a quick and simple procedure that can be performed in our office. Here's what you can expect during the treatment:
- Blood draw: First, we will draw a small amount of blood from your arm, just like a regular blood test.
- Processing: Next, we will process the blood in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets and other healing factors.
- Injection: Once the platelet-rich plasma has been prepared, we will inject it into the affected area using ultrasound guidance to ensure precise placement.
- Recovery: After the injection, you may experience some mild discomfort or swelling. We recommend rest and gentle movement for a few days after the procedure.

PRP Therapy: What to Expect
PRP (platelet rich plasma) therapy is an innovative nonsurgical treatment option used to activate healing in an area of injury and/or pain in the body. Unlike surgery or steroid injections, PRP therapy is a minimally invasive procedure that consists of only using a concentrated source of the patient’s own blood as the healing agent.
PRP therapy first gained headlines when high-level athletes (such as Kobe Bryant, Rafael Nadal, and Steph Curry) used the procedure for their joint pain. Thanks to recent advancements in regenerative medicine, we can now offer PRP therapy to all of our patients who are a good candidate for the procedure.
Our expert team of doctors at Orlando Hand Surgery Associates provide nonsurgical regenerative medicine procedures at our new facility, Orlando Center for Regenerative Medicine. The Orlando Center for Regenerative Medicine houses state-of-the-art technology for our procedures and it’s conveniently located in the same building as our Orlando Hand Surgery Associates Downtown Orlando office at 801 N. Orange Ave., Suite 600 B, Orlando, FL 32801.
Before making an appointment for a PRP injection, you will first have a consultation with one of our doctors. Our doctors take an individualized approach for each specific injury and condition in order to determine the best treatment plan for your situation. If PRP therapy is the best treatment option for you, our office will schedule an appointment for the procedure. Anti-inflammatories should not be taken for 3 weeks prior to the procedure and 3 weeks after the procedure. A PRP therapy procedure begins with one of our registered nurses drawing your blood. Approximately 60 cc’s of blood is drawn; about the same amount you would expect to give for a blood donation.
Many patients report that the injection is painless and most patients are able to return to normal daily activities immediately after the procedure. Patients typically start seeing an improvement in their mobility and symptoms within 2 to 4 weeks. Depending on the severity of the injury or condition, more than one injection may be required.The blood is then spun in a high-spinning machine called a centrifuge. The centrifuge separates the blood into 3 components: red bloods cells, platelet rich plasma, and platelet poor plasma. The platelet rich plasma component includes growth factors that can promote healing and relieve pain. Therefore, only the concentrated source of platelet rich plasma is injected into the area of pain and discomfort.
A wide range of conditions and injuries of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, ankle and foot can be treated using PRP therapy at the Orlando Center for Regenerative Medicine.
