Joints Repair and Joint Replacement

Platelet-rich plasma for joint treatments (PRP)

For joint replacement American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and the International Cellular Medicine Society have suggested guidelines, many of which are included below:

  • Osteoarthritis pain affects daily activities
  • Other more conservative joint replacement treatments have failed or been eliminated:
    • Physical therapy to strengthen joint muscles has not helped
    • The patient is sensitive to anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen, or find NSAIDs do not provide adequate pain relief
    • Joint aspirations are not appropriate or do not provide adequate pain relief
    • Steroid injections have not worked, or the patient wants to avoid steroid injections

Platelet-rich plasma injections are not typically recommended for the most severe cases of osteoarthritis.

Platelet-rich plasma injections helped the joint if the arthritis is less than 75% damage on the x-rays.  Platelet-rich plasma itself is not the cure, a patient needs to do exercise, weight loss.

Platelet-rich plasma for joint injection preparation:

Blood is drawn from the vein and centrifuge by using advanced efficient Emcyte centrifuge with greater G force which provides 7-9 times concentration of platelets, degranulated and combined  with little red blood cells and injected into the joint for joint replacement treatment.  May repeat every 4 weeks.  Patient may experience little pain after injecting PRP that can be controlled by applying cold compresses and patient can take Tylenol as needed.  We recommend patient not to take NSAIDs after PRP injection.  The improvement in the joint can take 12 weeks.  If needed patient may need treatment once a year to maintain the joint and to prevent it from degeneration.
