Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy – Jupiter, FL

Using Your Own Blood For Better Healing

Blood and plasma separated in tubes

PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a substance that we can derive from a patient’s own blood in our onsite lab. It contains a high concentration of platelets along with other healing proteins, growth factors, and specialized cells that can stimulate the body’s natural ability to heal. At the New England Stem Cell Institute, we’ve been using platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy in Jupiter, FL to help patients overcome chronic pain and injuries longer than almost every other practice in the U.S. Today, we still lead the way in figuring out the best method to produce PRP and apply it to help our patients recover and enjoy long-term relief.

How is PRP Produced?

One of the best parts about using PRP is that it is made using a patient’s own blood, which means it’s perfectly safe. In most other medical offices, PRP is made by taking a sample of blood and placing it in a centrifuge that separates the PRP from the other parts of the blood. At the New England Stem Cell Institute, however, we prefer to take a different approach.

In order to produce the highest-quality PRP possible, our own Dr. Tortland spent more than a year developing his own proprietary method. Today, he’s able to better customize a patient’s PRP treatment to meet their specific needs. For example, he can create PRP with a higher concentration of platelets to help someone with arthritis, or PRP with a lower concentration, which tends to work better for tendon and ligament injuries.

What Should I Expect During PRP Treatment?

We’ll take a small sample of your blood, process it in our lab, and when it’s ready, we’ll inject it directly into your damaged tissue using ultrasound guidance. This helps us make sure the treatment is going directly into the targeted area.

Depending on the severity of your issue, you may need more than one PRP injection to achieve the best and longest lasting results. Dr. Tortland will be able to outline your treatment plan when you see him for a consultation.
