Platelet rich plasma is the one of the latest treatments for joint, tendon, ligamentous and muscle injury. It is currently actively used in human medicine for the treatment of arthritis and sports injuries. We are proud to be the first clinic in Singapore to provide this treatment to small animals.
The platelet rich plasma is harvested from 10mls of blood using specialised equipment. The entire procedure is performed in the clinic and does not take more than 30 minutes. (Question: Entire procedure including reintroducing harvested plasma into the diseased areas?)
The harvested plasma is then reintroduced into the diseased areas. So far, we have obtained very promising results in terms of pain relief and quicker return to function.
