Platelet Rich Plasma
Our doctors are leaders in podiatry for their work concerning Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). PRP is used in a procedure known as Plasma Therapy. This natural healing process is an alternative to surgery which will take platelets from your own blood. Then we will deliver a specially-made (from your own platelets) and concentrated injection directly into your problem area. You will then be pain-free and able to resume your daily activities quickly.
Let our experienced doctors with over 40 years of experience explain the process a little further:
“Plasma therapy, also known as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), is an alternative to surgery and can be applied right here in the office.” Dr. Benjamin works in our office and has been a podiatrist for over 30 years. He is a leading proponent in his field for advanced medical practices such as PRP. “It’s an injection that heals tissue, slows down degeneration, and there’s little or no pain. We’re now using PRP to treat patients who suffer from arthritic joints, sports injuries, Achilles tendonitis, and plantar fasciitis, among other inflammatory ailments.”
“The human body has an extraordinary ability to heal itself.” Dr. Mullendore has over 10 years of experience in foot and ankle reconstructive surgery. For the past 12 years she has helped patients like yourself at Laser Podiatry Associates. “I have been using PRP with surgical procedures to enhance healing for several years and am thrilled to be able to offer this in the office now. By enhancing the body’s natural healing potential, the treatment leads to a more rapid and efficient repair of the tissue to a healthy condition.”
