The Journey of Platelet-Rich Plasma Step 1

From Extraction to Injection
Orthopedic treatments have been revolutionized by advancements in orthobiologics, one of the most promising being Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP). This method harnesses the body’s innate healing capabilities to address various musculoskeletal conditions.

But how exactly does a platelet move from its natural environment within our circulatory system to become a crucial part of this innovative therapy? Let’s delve into the remarkable journey of a platelet from extraction to use in PRP applications.

The journey begins in the patient’s vein. A specific amount of blood, usually between 11 to 66 milliliters, depending on the patient’s size and the nature of the injury, is drawn using an FDA-cleared collection device, similar to what you would experience during a routine blood test.
