At The Institute for Foot and Ankle Reconstruction at Mercy, our surgeons are proud to offer an innovative non-operative treatment option, called platelet-rich plasma therapy, for foot and ankle injuries.
Platelet-rich plasma therapy is an innovative therapy that helps promote healing of tendon injuries and osteoarthritis. Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a non-surgical procedure.
A small amount of the patient’s own blood is taken and spun in a centrifuge to separate the blood’s platelets from the rest of the blood cells. The platelets then are injected into the patient at the site of the injured joint or tendon. The platelets contain proteins that promote tissue healing.
Following platelet-rich plasma therapy, it is important for the patient to be able to rest for about 48 hours so that the site of the injection is not disturbed.
