Whenever a patient undergoes a surgical procedure, there is the risk for problems with the wound not healing properly and with potential infection, especially in the elderly, diabetic or immunologically compromised patient. Utilizing PRP Wound Healing Therapy, not only does the surgical wound heal more rapidly, but also withless pain and discomfort to the patient. Most importantly, the risk of infection is reduced because of the high concentration of leukocytes (white blood cells) present in the platelet-rich plasma.
Platelet-rich plasma can be utilized in nearly any surgical procedure and is especially beneficial in the fields of cardiothoracic, neurological, orthopedic, spinal, maxillofacial and cosmetic/plastic surgery. Along with the benefits previously mentioned, platelet-rich plasma can reduce the scarring associated with an incision. This is especially important to the patient undergoing cosmetic surgical procedures.
