In this procedure, the blood is withdrawn from your body and centrifuged for about 15 minutes to separate blood plasma (liquid separated on top) and blood products (settled at the bottom). The plasma is taken and kept aside in a sterile injection. This is later injected into the site of injury under sterile conditions and ultrasound guidance. The PRP treatment is accomplished in several treatment sessions and each session may take less than an hour.

The procedure is considered safe, risk of infection is minimal, offers minimal discomfort and the recovery is quick.
