A Physician Talks PRP: Using Your Body’s Own Platelets to Heal Injury

Chronic pain can keep your body hurting for weeks, months, or even years at a time, impacting your day-to-day life and even your work and time with family. It can be a result of an injury, other health issue, or there may be no apparent reason for the pain. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is one of the newest ways to treat pain. PRP uses a highly concentrated solution of your body’s own platelets to accelerate the natural healing of damaged tissue.

Robotic-Assisted Hip and Knee Replacement Surgery: Four Big Questions

Hip or knee surgery, also known as arthroplasty, is a procedure that can help patients who manage severe joint pain and osteoarthritis. In many cases the surgery is life-changing, enabling patients to walk again, restore mobility and return to the activities and active lifestyle they used to enjoy. Robotic technology equips the surgeon with a 3D model created from a CT scan of the hip or knee having the procedure. The 3D model serves as a map for the surgeon to establish a surgical plan and he or she controls a robotic arm to perform the procedure, positioning the joint replacement in the precise location for alignment of the body.
