PRP (platelet-rich plasma) treatment is an innovative injection procedure used to treat the following conditions:
Osteoarthritis of the Knee, Shoulder, Hip, and Spine
Rotator Cuff Tears
Chronic Plantar Fasciitis
Pelvic Pain and Instability
Back and Neck Injuries
As Epiderma Multispecialty Skin Clinic, our platelet-rich plasma (PRP) procedures that incorporate significantly higher blood platelet concentrations that are much purer than PRP offered at clinics utilizing a simple bedside centrifuge to process blood draws. Our PRP therapy generates the best possible patient results and fewer inflammatory side effects that sometimes depend on the purity of the PRP mixture.
How Does PRP Help Heal The Body?
The body’s first response to soft tissue injury is to deliver platelet cells. Packed with growth and healing factors, platelets initiate repair and attract the critical assistance of stem cells.
The natural healing process of PRP improves the level of platelets supply in higher concentration to the needy area of the body. The PRP treatment also increases the body’s effort to perform this function.
The PRP is performed by drawing a small sample of blood from the patient’s body and thereafter placing the sample in a centrifuge that spins the blood at high speed that separates the platelets from other components of the blood. To create PRP, a small sample of your blood is drawn (similar to a lab test sample) and placed in a centrifuge that spins the blood at high speeds, separating the platelets from the other components. An expert lab technician manually executes the process that is responsible for generating the higher platelet count thus increasing the beneficial components of blood.
The PRP is then injected into and around the point of injury, jump-starting and significantly strengthening the healing process because your own blood is used, there is no risk of a transmissible infection and a low risk of allergic reaction.
How Long Does the Procedure Take?
The procedure typically takes a couple of hours, including preparation and recovery time. If the procedure is performed in a well-equipped clinic under the safe hands of skilled practitioners the therapy simply relieves the patient from the pain and suffering without any anethesia and surgery. Performed safely in a medical office, PRP therapy relieves pain without the risks of surgery, general anesthesia, or hospital stays and without a prolonged recovery. The satisfactory part of the procedure is that most patients return to their usual life immediately after the therapy.
How Often Should the Procedure be done?
This will be discussed between you and your physician. Your doctor may prescribe up to three injections within a span of six months. However, a large number of people gain considerable to complete relief after the first or second injection.
What are the Expected Results?
The expected result is long lasting as the therapy aims to resolve pain through healing. Visible improvements are noticed within a few weeks, as the healing progresses. The PRP treatment has proved to be very effective in relieving pain as proved by recent research studies. The therapy has assisted patients to return to their normal lives. The effectiveness of PRP therapy has been confirmed by both ultrasound and MRI images. The images have proved the confirmed healing procedure that repairs the damaged tissue. The possibility of going under the knife can be avoided simply by opting for PRP therapy.
RECONSTRUCTIVE COSMETIC SURGERY:
From the top of the head to the tip of the toe, and from newborn babies to the very elderly, reconstructive surgery is used to treat a wide range of conditions.
The process of Reconstructive surgery aims to repair and reshape bodily contour and structure which occurs due to either birth defects, abnormalities in the developmental phase, or out of any serious injuries, tumors or any diseases.
Using a wide range of reconstructive techniques, plastic surgeons mend holes and repair damage primarily through the transfer of tissue from one part of the body to another. Their main aim is to restore the body, or the function of a specific part of the body, to normal.
However, plastic surgeons carrying out reconstructive surgery also try to improve and restore appearance. The experts try their level best to minimize the sight of the wound or any defect s and also the effect of the operation.
Cosmetic surgery is an extension of reconstructive surgery in which the main functional gain to be expected is an improvement in appearance.
What problems and conditions are treated with reconstructive surgery?
The Reconstructive surgery is operated to treat a wide range of conditions which fall into the two following categories, congenital and acquired.
Congenital conditions are those that are present at birth. Congenital conditions that are treated with reconstructive surgery include:
• Cleft lip and palate
Using local flaps and grafts, surgeons can repair the incompletely fused area of the lip and palate.
• Vascular anomalies, such as birthmarks
Surgical excisions, combined with other treatment options, are available for the treatment of arteriovenous malformations (AVM) and certain haemangioma.
• Prominent ears, constricted ears, and microtia
Reconstructive surgery is used to correct all manner of ear defects; techniques include otoplasty for prominent or constricted ears and ‘autogenous ear reconstruction’ for the treatment of microtia.
To treat the defect of the urethra in baby boys, reconstructive surgery works effectively in repairing soft tissue.
• Craniofacial conditions
Reconstructive surgery is used to correct a wide range of cranial and facial deformations, such as craniosynostosis.
• Hand deformities
Plastic surgeons can also correct birth defects of the hand – e.g. In case of children who are born with extra digits or few digits.
Acquired conditions are those that develop or occur after birth. They can involve disease and infection, or they can involve accident and injury. Acquired conditions that are treated with reconstructive surgery include:
In case of cancer patients, plastic surgeons invest a lot of time in the process. Reconstructive surgery, mainly excision, closure, and flap reconstruction, is used to treat a range of cancer conditions, especially cancer of the skin, breast, head and neck and sarcoma.
To treat conditions of trauma and serious injuries Reconstructive surgery works the best. These injuries most commonly involve the hand – in fact, 50% of the work carried out in many plastic surgery units is concerned with hand trauma.
To combat serious infections and to repair the surrounding tissues of the infected area Reconstructive surgery is effective to remove dead tissue.
To treat serious burn conditions Plastic surgeons are primarily deployed in the resuscitation and surgeries for the burnt patients.
• Hand surgery
Plastic surgeons manage and work on a vast range of conditions that are responsible for conditions such as paralysis, arthritis, nerve compression and ganglions.
What techniques are used?
The only technique of a Plastic surgery is applied to achieve the maximum repair benefits. In this respect, plastic surgery is very much a ‘growth specialty’. This discipline has evolved drastically over the last thirty-five years with increasing range of opportunities and expert doctors.
