What Is Platelet-Rich Plasma?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a byproduct of your own blood that contains a high number of platelets (which are the cells that help cuts and scrapes stop bleeding). Once used only in hospitals, PRP is now being used in clinics such as the Adara Surgical Institute in Issaquah, WA.

Containing mostly water and protein, plasma is the base of your blood, and it provides a liquid material for your red and white blood cells, as well as your platelets, to exist in. By taking a small amount (only 55 cc) of your blood, Dr. Dhaliwal can create a small amount of platelet-rich plasma and use it on the site of bone grafts or other oral surgery. This stimulates healing and releases growth factors into the blood, speeding up your recovery.
