Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) with OB/GYN Surgeries

PRP from your own blood can be used to promote healing and stop blood flow during and after C-Sections and other abdominal gynecologic procedures. Studies show that the use of PRP in gynecologic surgery can significantly reduce post-op pain.

How PRP works

Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP uses a patient’s own blood to stimulate a healing response in damaged tissues. The body’s normal healing processes are dependent upon blood flow. Whether an open cut or a micro tear in a tendon, the body signals for and recruits platelets to the area of injury, releasing growth factors and stem cells to initiate healing and regeneration.

Today’s technology allows us to separate and concentrate platelets from your blood and initiate that same healing process The process quickly increases the baseline concentration of platelets by four to seven times. PRP delivers a powerful dose of growth factors to the injury site and dramatically enhances the healing process.

Anytime surgery is required, PRP can be used to:

  • Reduce inflammation and bruising
  • Increase range of motion
  • Fight off infection
  • Reduce scarring
