The hosts of Better Connecticut recently did an in-depth segment about Roshni Patel and the Center of Excellence in Pain and Regenerative Medicine. The segment follows the story of previous and current patients as they describe their pain management journey. The majority of the patients had tried one or more alternative methods before coming to CEPRM, and speak about the incredible transformation they saw once they received PRP therapy. Their injuries vary in location, some with wrist complications, others with arthritis in the knee, but they only have great things to say about Dr. Patel and PRP therapy.
Dr. Roshni Patel has been providing treatment to patients for 15 years and is an NYU & HSS (#1 in Orthopedics) Interventional Pain Management Physician. Dr. Patel is able to combine her training, knowledge, and skills to provide optimal and unmatched results. During the video, she speaks in-depth about the incredible benefits of using Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for pain and regenerative medicine, a non-invasive procedure that utilizes the body’s own healing properties to repair damaged tissue.
What Is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?
Human blood is made up of a number of components including red blood cells, white blood cells, serum, and platelets. Platelets are very important for clot formation. They stick to each other and form a blood clot. Medical research has found that platelets also contain a number of molecules and proteins that are involved in wound healing. When platelets are activated, they release these components collectively called “growth factors.” When blood cells are separated from the blood, the resulting fluid is called plasma. The processing of plasma can concentrate the platelets and their corresponding growth factors. Sites that can see promising results from PRP injection therapy are as follows:
- Rotator cuﬀ injuries
- Shoulder pain and instability
- Tennis & golfer’s elbow
- Hamstring and hip strains
- Knee sprains and instability
- Patellofemoral syndrome and patellar tendinosis
- Ankle sprains
- Achilles tendinosis & plantar fasciitis
