Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is now available and currently being used at Spire Sussex Hospital by Mr Richard Goddard, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon. PRP therapy is an alternative treatment method for orthopaedic conditions which have traditionally required surgery or other extensive treatments.
PRP therapy offers an alternative solution to reduce joint pain from osteoarthritis and accelerates healing of tendon injuries naturally without subjecting the patient to significant risk. Injuries of joints, ligaments and tendons are the most common problems treated with PRP therapy.
Spire Sussex Hospital offers PRP treatment for knee conditions such as osteoarthritis, Jumper’s Knee (patella tendonitis), anterior knee pain and ligament sprains. As well other conditions such as Tennis Elbow, Golfer’s Elbow, Plantar Fasciitis, and hip pain due to Trochanteric Bursitis. The procedure is safe, relatively quick and performed in the outpatient room with minimal discomfort.
