Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) is a successful treatment in Dr. Sharobeem’s practice. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is used in a procedure known as Plasma Therapy. This natural healing process is an alternative to surgery which will take platelets from your own blood. Then we will deliver a specially-made (from your own platelets) and concentrated injection directly into your problem area. You will then be pain-free and able to resume your daily activities quickly.

Plasma therapy, also known as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), is an alternative to surgery and can be applied right here in our Manhattan offices. Dr. Sherobeem is a leading proponent in his field for advanced medical practices such as PRP. PRP is an injection that heals tissue, slows down degeneration, and there’s little or no pain. Manhattan Foot and Ankle now uses PRP to treat patients who suffer from arthritic joints, sports injuries, Achilles tendonitis, and plantar fasciitis, among other inflammatory ailments.

Manhattan Foot and Ankle uses PRP with surgical procedures to enhance healing. By enhancing the body’s natural healing potential, the treatment leads to a more rapid and efficient repair of the tissue to a healthy condition.

How It Works

The process begins with a sample of your blood. It is spun around in a centrifuge. This separates it into platelets, plasma, and red and white blood cells. The platelets are then concentrated and mixed with some of the plasma. This mixture is called “platelet rich plasma.” The doctor injects this into the site of your injury.

Benefits of PRP

Parts of your body have a hard time healing. For example, ligaments and tendons (they connect bones and muscles) do not get much blood from the body. Sprains and strains of these tissues heal slowly. PRP uses your own blood to speed up the healing in these areas.

The Procedure

After the injection, your immune system (the system that keeps your body healthy) reacts quickly. Special white blood cells called “macrophages” rush in. They take away damaged cells. They help prep the site for healing. Then, stem cells and other cells begin to multiply. Over time, they repair and rebuild the injured tissues.

The PRP process is quick. You can go home the same day. It may help your injury heal faster. PRP can help treat and eliminate the cause of your pain. Some people need more than one treatment before they heal completely.
