PRP injection and visco-supplementation
Platelet Rich Plasma and Hyaluronic Acid
PRP is the portion of the blood that contains platelets, which have strong reparative and anti-inflammatory properties. In combination with adequate physiotherapy, PRP injection is a valuable option in the treatment of early osteoarthritis, as well as chronic inflammations of tendons, bursae, muscles, etc (i.e. tendonitis, bursitis).
In some cases, the injection of Hyaluronic Acid can improve the symptoms in arthritic joints, by providing a relatively long lasting (6-12 months) lubrication in the joint. This is another option for patients with early to moderate arthritis.
Thanks to her in-depth experience and knowledge in the field of regenerative medicine, A/Prof Di Bella can offer this treatment to selected patients, to postpone as much as possible the need for joint replacement surgery, or to treat conditions for which there is poor success with surgery (for example, gluteal chronic tendonitis/trochanteric bursitis).
Her technique assures the injection of the maximum concentration of platelets.
