Dr. Carlos Mata, a.k.a. Dr. Scottsdale® offers a noninvasive procedure called platelet-rich plasma, which is used to mainly treat athletes and other patients who have tendon injuries. Using their own blood, these men and women will rebuild their damaged tendons by jumpstarting the healing process with their own growth factors. The blood is used to generate a higher platelet concentration, which is then injected to facilitate the healing of ligaments, joints, tendons, and other musculoskeletal problems. In plastic surgery, Dr. Mata can also use this procedure to activate platelets injected into abnormal tissues or scars to release growth factors which increase the production of reparative cells. If you would like to learn more about platelet-rich plasma treatments, please call and schedule your consultation.
Dr. Mata will want to schedule a consultation for PRP treatments to see if you are an ideal candidate. Many men or women, who seek PRP treatments, are patients with tendon injuries or are experiencing acute pain. Dr. Mata will discuss all of your treatment options at your consultation.
Your PRP procedure will probably take a couple of hours to complete. The process is immediate, and your healing should only take a few hours (with a maximum of one day). After your initial improvements within the first few weeks, the procedure will show a 95% efficacy rate, and up to 3 injections are made in the time span of 6 months.
