Our talented surgeons can do ACL and ligament reconstruction.
Platelet Rich Plasma
We offer platelet rich plasma (PRP) to our patients to aid with the treatment of injuries and is said to help athletes return to their sport sooner than treatments without it. Platelet rich plasma has become popular in sports medicine for treating injuries such as long-lasting tendon problems (tendonitis of the elbow for example), pulled muscles, and sprains or help with recovery from a surgery. Platelet rich plasma contains growth factors, which is why it can help with healing. It is created using some of the patient’s blood and then condensing the blood while keeping all of the platelets.
