What Is PRP?
Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, is a substance derived from your own body that can be used to treat your body. It is a plasma with a high concentration of platelets, bioactive proteins, and growth factors, which can encourage the repair and regeneration of body tissue. The growth factors and stem cell markers stimulate your body’s natural healing process by introducing platelets directly to the injury site.
PRP is obtained from a traditional blood draw. Platelet cells and plasma are separated by using an FDA-approved cylinder and centrifuge system, and the substance used for injections is created from this separation.
How Can PRP Help Me?
PRP injections can be used to treat a variety of conditions, such as:
- Osteoarthritis of the knee, shoulder, elbow, hip, and spine

What Could I Expect from a Procedure?
PRP injections are a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment. They are administered during an outpatient procedure in the comfort of our office. Our team, which is led by Dr. Angelo Mattalino, practices only the most advanced techniques in outpatient settings. Dr. Mattalino is a leader in regenerative medicine and techniques.
The PRP treatment process takes approximately an hour, but the injection itself typically takes less than ten minutes. It is important to not irritate the injection site. Some mild pain, swelling, or discomfort may occur, but there is no set downtime for the procedure. A rehabilitation exercise program may be recommended as part of the recovery process. Results from treatment and recovery will vary.
Am I a Good Candidate?
PRP injections are an alternative to surgical, more invasive treatment options. They can also spare you from the hassle of extended physical therapy or medications. However, the best way to ensure that PRP is the right option to treat your injury is a consultation with our team in Paradise Valley. Achieving the best results may require additional treatments, and this consultation can help establish the right plan for you.
