Platelet-Rich Plasma

What is PRP? 

Platelet-Rich Plasma, or PRP, is blood plasma that contains concentrated amounts of platelets and growth factors. PRP is a non-surgical and advanced means of providing high doses of the body’s own healing factors directly to the area where they are needed. PRP can be used to aid in the treatment of many ailments as seen in the illustration below.


How Does it Work? 

Platelet Rich Plasma is a trending topic in human sports orthopedic medicine. Used for sports injuries and many wear and tear issues. In-clinic PRP is a breakthrough process for pets utilizing blood plasma with concentrated platelets that once activated, accelerate the healing properties of the isolated growth factors at a fraction of the cost of traditional human treatments.

Platelets that are found in whole blood contain many healing growth factors and bioactive proteins. These bioactive proteins can initiate tissue healing, and assist with inflammation. The treatment offers an affordable all natural alternative to drugs and steroids.

What does it help?

PRP can be introduced topically in or around an injured joint, tendon, or used in its gel form to treat large burns or wounds. PRP is not limited to acute injuries, it can also be used for chronic conditions.

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Tenosynovitis
  • Wound Care
  • General Inflammation
  • Post Surgical Healing

Testimonials

We took our 5 month old puppy in to get neutered today and had a great experience. They educate you on expenses without making you feel guilty if you decide against extra options. We were able to pick him up 5 hours after dropping him off which was also amazing. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a vet.

Dr. Genova has been my 4 legged daughter's doctor for her whole life (10 years). He is very personable, informative and kind. I seriously cannot say enough positive things about him.. Why else would I trust him to take care of my baby girl?

The rest of the staff is also very kind. Most of them have changed throughout the years but one thing that hasn't is that you can immediately tell how much they all love animals.

This is definitely one of this places that I wish I could give more than 5 stars to.

We had our first experience at Village at Main Veterinary Hospital today and I couldn't wait to write a review because of how pleased I was with the entire staff and environment. I arrived way early for my appointment but they took me anyway since it was open with no problem at all. As soon as we walked in the door my puppy and I were greeted with smiles and even staff that didn't run the counter came out and greeted and loved on my puppy as well which really put her at ease. Every staff member acknowledged our presence at some point. We were taken back to an exam room and we saw Dr. Tran who was warm and loving toward my puppy, she really took her time and you could easily see that she loves what she does. Dr. Tran covered all of my questions I had planned to ask as well as asked if I had any others. I would highly recommend this clinic to anybody who has had a bad experience at another clinic because it will totally make up for it as it did in our case. Thank you so much again for making us feel right at home and loving what you guys do, I will continue to drive 30 minutes just to have my pooch continue to see you guys :)
