PRP for Meniscus Injuries
PRP is a very effective treatment for meniscus tears. Due to the lack of blood flow in the deep
meniscus, PRP injections allow platelets to reach the lesion.
If the injections are completely effective, they may be able to eliminate the need for surgery.
Osteoarthritis and subsequent knee deterioration are potential side effects of surgery. The use of
PRP injections for meniscus tears can eliminate all of these concerns.
The surgeon must determine whether to maintain or remove tissue components while mending a
meniscus. Removing them may result in faster and more effective recovery, but at the expense of
longer-term repercussions. Keeping them in can make recovery after surgery more difficult.
When PRP therapy is used to treat meniscus injuries, surgeons are more likely to retain the
meniscus intact. After surgery, PRP permits the meniscus to heal fast and fully.
According to studies, the growth factors in PRP help patients recover faster and keep more of
their meniscus after surgery.
Furthermore, the meniscus almost never tears on its own. It frequently tears at the same time as
the ACL or another ligament. PRP can also help to speed up the recovery of ligaments and tendons
in the area.
