Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment is now available at Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital

Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital is now offering Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment for patients suffering with Tennis or Golfer’s elbow.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment is now available at Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital with Mr Niel Kang, consultant orthopaedic surgeon. PRP is currently being used as an alternative treatment method for orthopaedic conditions which have traditionally required surgery or other extensive treatments.

   

PRP treatment involves a small amount of blood being taken from the patient. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge which spins and separates the platelets from the rest of the blood. The patient’s own platelets are then collected into a highly concentrated formula which is injected directly into the injured area.  When platelets become activated, growth factors are released and initiate the body’s natural healing response; tendon regeneration can be achieved by injecting platelet-rich plasma into the degenerative tendon.

PRP is a relatively new treatment used for some orthopaedic conditions such as:

  • Tennis elbow
  • Golfer’s elbow
