MetroMD Offers PRP Therapy for Knees in Los Angeles

Over the years MetroMD has been on the forefront of regenerative medicine. We have developed some of the latest protocols in cellular medicine, hormone replacement therapy and much more. One of these protocols is using patients own platelets to restore knee injuries to normal function.

MetroMD offers PRP therapy for knees by isolating a specific layer of a patient’s own blood for regenerative use. Typically 7-21ml of blood is isolated and then it is placed in a centrifuge to separate out the PRP layer. Once this layer is obtained it can be placed on sites to stimulate regeneration.

Of these sites knees is one of the most targeted. Injuries such as meniscus tear, ACL, PCL, or MCL tears can be treated. PRP is injected directly into the area that is damaged. This then stimulates the area to heal and ultimately restores anatomy and function.

Typically, 3-6 treatments are needed to treat a patient. These treatments are each done one month apart. After every treatment, the patient’s tissue should continue to regenerate.
