- Minimally invasive
How does the PRP process work?
Your healthcare provider will recover a small amount of blood or bone marrow. This sample then goes through a rapid spinning process that separates and concentrates the platelets and other beneficial growth factors from the blood. The entire PRP production process is usually done in less than 30 minutes. PRP uses your body’s own natural properties to treat your injury.
