With mounting registry data, we are able to tell patients and their families about how long a PRP injection might help with their SLAP lesion symptoms. We are trying to decrease their pain and improve their function. But surgery is still the gold standard for anyone who still has pain or dysfunction with a type 2 SLAP lesion.
* What is the average price for a knee #PRP injection at the top 25 US Hospitals?*
The average is $800 per injection.
But how many platelets are in that injection? We have an average price but we don't know how many platelets that is buying. As a result the conclusion misses out on some critical price factors that must be considered by doctors and patients alike when choosing PRP companies, following dosing protocols, and pricing the PRP for patients.
Let me explain.
Single Price does not equal the total cost to the patient.
Would you rather have 3 injections for $800 each or 1 injection for $1800 if the results were the same? Right.
Frisco, Mckinney, Plano Texas....Did you know that adding PRP to a rotator cuff repair reduces retear rates?
Texas Orthobiologics is bringing America's #1 Regenerative Medicine and Orthopedic Surgery Clinic to Frisco, Texas, McKinney, Texas, Plano, Texas, Allen, Texas, and surrounding north Dallas communities. Our motto is that you deserve to live your best life without pain....and we have the latest nonsurgical ways to get you there. Sometimes, like with a complete rotator cuff tendon tear in the shoulder, surgery in unavoidable....but we have you covered there too! We can use PRP (platelet rich plasma) or Bone Marrow Concentrate (stem cells) to get you a better surgical result. We have been setting the standard in this growing specialty for 15 years now.
At Texas Orthobiologics , we test every patient's blood and their PRP so we know what we are dosing patients with. Every doctor treating patients with a drug should know the dose of the drug they are giving to the patient, right? Yet, we know that very few clinics in Dallas, Frisco, McKinney, Plano, Southlake, or Fort Worth actually have the machine necessary to be able to determine PRP dosing. A patient's response is determined in part by the PRP dose so if we don't know one huge piece of the puzzle, how are we supposed to counsel our patients?
We have an increasing volume of clinical evidence that PRP injections can offer some hope of pain relief even to patients with advanced knee arthritis.
It is up to the patient to decide on this treatment modality after discussing relevant surgical and nonsurgical treatment options with their orthopedic trained doctor.
Is there a relationship between PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) dosing and angiogenesis? Probably!
I was part of a great group of clinicians and scientists on this most recently published paper on the relationship of PRP dosing to angiogenesis.
