What can I expect during my appointment?
For someone who has never had a PRP injection before, you may not be aware of what the process is. However, we encourage our patients to view the process as simple as getting your blood drawn and getting a shot. The entire procedure usually takes no more than 40-45 minutes to complete. When we draw your blood, we place it in a centrifuge. This machine spins so fast that it can separate your blood into different layers. We want to get the plasma from your blood. Then, this plasma can be injected into the area that is causing you pain. When you use your body’s own growth factors, you may find that the healing process is quick and there is a smaller risk of side effects. That said, you may experience slight discomfort during your Silver Spring, MD PRP therapy.
