The therapy, known as platelet-rich plasma therapy and sometimes known as PRP therapy, or autologous conditioned plasma (ACP) therapy, seeks to make use of blood’s natural healing capabilities to heal damaged cartilage muscles, ligaments, tendons and even bone.
Platelet-rich plasma comes from a portion of the patient’s blood. The PRP injections for treatment have plasma with a greater amount of platelets than that present in normal blood.
Plasma is the blood’s liquid component and is the medium used to transport white and red blood cells, as well as other materials moving through the bloodstream. Plasma is mostly water, but it also contains proteins, nutrients sugars, glucose and antibodies in addition to other components.
As with white and red blood cells they are a common part of blood. Platelets by themselves do not possess any healing or restorative properties they instead release growth factors as well as various other protein molecules that help regulate the division of cells, encourage regeneration of tissue, and encourage healing. Platelets also aid in assisting blood to clot. A patient with a deficient platelet count or a deficiency of platelets could be prone to bleeding from an injury.
Platelets are a type of cell found in blood. They are most well-known for their capability to assist the blood to clot. They also contain various proteins known as growth factors.
Plasma therapy that is rich in platelets is based upon the idea that growth factors help in healing. The procedure, which utilizes the patient’s own blood, is a way of separating plasma cells from the blood which is the liquid component of blood. This process boosts the number of platelets. They are then reintroduced back into the plasma.
The plasma is now containing more than the usual amount of platelets. This is what a doctor may inject into an area that has been damaged due to injury or disease.
Platelet-rich plasma treatment in thane may help in knee pain and is particularly beneficial for people who have had no results with other treatments.
A medical professional will take some from your blood. They’ll place your blood in centrifuge. It spins the blood at various speeds until it is separated into layers. One of the layers is plasma that is rich in platelets. This plasma layer may be as high as three times the amount of platelets as normal blood.
The plasma rich in platelets will be injected into the damaged region. Your doctor may initially treat the area with local anesthetic. The pain in the area could increase over the next two weeks. It could take some time before you experience any improvement.
After your treatment, your doctor might recommend you:
In the case of PRP treatment for knees, research have proven that certain types of treatment with platelet rich plasma may be effective in treating knee osteoarthritis.
The treatment for knee osteoarthritis is challenging due to the limited regeneration capability of knee cartilage. There is no cure for osteoarthritis. Treatment is focused on reducing symptoms and reducing the necessity of knee surgery
Platelet-rich plasma might be helpful in treating tendon injuries that are chronic, such as tennis elbow. However, in the case of other tendon injuries such as the knee of a jumper, experts suggest that treatment with platelet-rich plasma might not be more efficient than conventional treatment.

Knee replacement is required for advanced arthritis of the knee joint, producing painful limitation of movements and restriction in activities of daily living. Knee replacement as a solution should be offered when all non–surgical methods of treatment failed and painkiller medicines and injections also failed to reduce the Knee and hip pains.
Knee replacement can be total or unicondylar, depending on the number of compartments involved. Among the total knee replacement, there are two popular designs- Cruciate Retaining, and Posterior Stabilized. The decision for the design is best taken by the operating orthopedic surgeon based on the integrity of ligaments. Patella resurfacing as a routine is a debatable subject.
Yes, most knee replacement surgeries are minimally invasive, with numerous benefits to the patient, including smaller incisions, less tissue trauma, bleeding and post–operative pain, shorter hospital stays, faster recovery, and earlier return to work and activities — in weeks rather than months. Advantages of Minimally Invasive Knee Replacement Surgery. Patients Start walking in few hours of surgery. Patients start climbing the staircase from second day of his surgery.

Bilateral knee replacement in the same sitting, can be performed if both the knee joints are damaged to the same extent, however, the medical condition of the patient, and bone quality must be kept in consideration.
Surgery through Minimally Invasive technique patients start walking on the same day and staircase climbing starts from the second day of surgery. Patients can resume his work after 3 – 4 week.
The most significant risks include Infection, Deep vein thrombosis,and Aseptic loosening of implants. The risks correlate with the co-morbid medical condition, and must be discussed with the patient before surgery.
Patients normally require hospitalization for 3-4 days in single knee replacement, and up to 5-6 days in both knee replacement surgery
A single knee replacement takes approximately 90 min- 2 hours. Both knee replacement surgery takes approx 2-3 hours.
Years ago, knee replacement surgery was reserved for elderly patients due to a high complication rate and lack of implant durability. Modern techniques have allowed orthopaedic surgeons to base surgical decisions on a patient’s pain and disability, and not necessarily chronological age. Most patients who undergo knee replacement are between the ages of 50 and 80, but surgeons evaluate patients individually and primarily on their physiologic age and demands.
Patients can resume his/her light work after discharge from the hospital, no need for rest.
Patients are given epidural anesthesia for surgery, and post op pain relief. They are expected to follow instruction from physiotherapist regarding muscle training.
