By Newport Beach Personal Injury Attorney on October 7, 2010

The latest treatment being utilized by orthopedic surgeons, heart surgeons, and even plastic surgeons does not involve adding or taking anything away from the body—just rearranging it. Used by dentists since the 1970s, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) speeds up and enhances the healing process when injected into specific areas of the body, whether in tendons, ligaments, cartilage, or heart tissue. PRP is the product of a process called blood spinning, in which a physician takes a couple of ounces of blood from a patient, spins it in a centrifuge to extract the platelets, and then injects the platelet-rich plasma into the patient’s injury site. Responsible for the secretion of growth factors that promote healing, platelets—or blood concentrated with them—have become the favored method of injury recovery among athletes, as well as a growing percentage of the general population.
