Dr. Kevin Darr is known for being one of the best doctors in Lousiana. His style of Orthopaedics focuses on a) educating his patients and b) treating complex musculoskeletal disorders.
One of the treatments Dr. Darr offers is an advanced version of PRP Therapy. His specific service is called Activated PRP Therapy Plus.
PRP, otherwise known as Platelet Rich Plasma, is a relatively new technique used to help aid in the recovery of soft tissue injuries and arthritic conditions (tendons, ligaments, and cartilage). These concentrated platelets found in PRP contain huge reservoirs of bio-active proteins, including growth factors that are vital to initiate and accelerate tissue repair. The goal of these bio-active proteins is to stimulate connective tissue healing, promote the development of new blood vessels and stimulate the wound healing process.
PRP injections can be performed in tendons, ligaments, and joints all over the body. Numerous common musculoskeletal conditions and sports injuries are treated with PRP. For a more comprehensive list please go to http://www.https://drkevindarr.com/prp-therapy/
During PRP therapy, a small sample of the patient’s blood is drawn (similar to a lab test sample) and placed in a centrifuge that spins the blood at high speeds, separating the platelets from other blood components.
The PRP is then placed under a special light that activates the growth factors. In addition, cytokines are added to the treatment plan. These molecules actually tell your platelets and cells where to go by guiding and directing them to the localized injured parts of your body. These FDA registered oral cytokines are used both before and after PRP & cell therapy procedures to customize a desired biologic effect depending on the individual’s baseline level of inﬂammation and underlying capacity to heal.
