PRP for Knee Injuries

PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma is a treatment that is fairly quick and involves little to no downtime. This treatment uses the patient’s own blood by separating the growth plasma from the other blood cells. The plasma is then applied to the area being treated delivering fresh oxygen and plasma to that part of the body.

For knee injuries this can be a miracle, the plasma has shown to speed up healing by sending platelets to damaged or injured areas. This can help with a reduction in pain and stiffness as well as improving mobility in the knee. This can be a good alternative to painkillers or surgery.

This treatment requires several treatments in order to see the best results. Typically patients would come in every 6-8 weeks for 3-6 separate sessions. you have any questions or think you would be a good candidate for PRP contact us today.

A-Cell Add on for PRP Hair loss Treatments in Los Angeles

Many men and women come to MetroMD looking for solutions to hair loss and
thinning hair. Over the years we have developed protocols utilizing our bodies
own healing mechanisms to restore hair the natural way. These include stem
cells treatments and PRP (platelet rich plasma). However, the latest and most
efficacious regenerative treatment is PRP with an additive called A-Cell.

And what is A-Cell?

A cell is a dehydrated extra cellular matrix that is added to PRP. This matrix
provides extra growth factors, collagen, and other additives that help further

promote hair follicle regeneration.

During a treatment a practitioner will still draw blood, isolate PRP, but then A-
Cell is added to this solution. This in turn is all injected into the scalp. We
recommend continuing this treatment monthly until the desired results are achieved.

Most patients require between 3-6 treatments.

PRP For Hair Loss

MetroMD has been a premier center for PRP for Hair Los in Los Angeles. Over

the last decade, we have perfected protocols for restoring hair loss and thinning

utilizing a patient’s own PRP. This treatment works wonders for our patients in Los

Angeles and can be done with minimal downtime.

How?

Well, PRP is a segment of our own blood. We obtain it by harvesting a patient’s

blood via a routine blood draw. This is then taken to our lab where it is processed

and platelets and growth factors are carefully separated out. Once this PRP is

isolated it is ready for use. We can inject this into areas of the scalp to promote hair

regrowth and thickening of current hair.

When?

A typically treatment series requires three to six treatments. Each treatment is done

4-6 weeks apart to help ensure maximum hair growth. Even after the series of

treatments is done a patient can come back for maintenance injections to help

enhance the overall procedure.

This treatment has been one of the most sought-after treatments at MetroMD. Our

Los Angeles natives have truly enjoyed this PRP treatment for hair loss and the

success it brings.

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.
