Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy at Canadian Specialist Hospital

Canadian Specialist Hospital in Dubai offers advanced Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy as a cutting-edge, non-operative treatment for various musculoskeletal conditions. This innovative approach harnesses the body's natural healing properties to promote recovery and reduce pain.

What is PRP Therapy?

PRP therapy is a regenerative medicine technique that uses a concentrated form of the patient's own blood platelets to accelerate healing. The process involves:

1. Drawing a small amount of the patient's blood

2. Processing the blood in a centrifuge to isolate and concentrate platelets

3. Injecting the platelet-rich plasma into the affected area

PRP contains growth factors and bioactive proteins that stimulate tissue repair and regeneration.
