Dr. Mazen Hamad offers Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments for:

  • Joint Pain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Thinning hairline

What is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma is a concentrated preparation of platelets and the associated growth factors in small volume of plasma. Platelets release growth factors which regulate the healing cascade by signaling to surrounding cells to repair damaged tissue and regenerate new tissue.

How do PRP injections work?

We prepare the injection of concentrated platelets from a sample of your own blood from a blood draw done the same day as your appointment. This can naturally enhance the healing process of damaged cells.

How long does it take to see results?

Results vary patient to patient but can sometimes be seen immediately depending on the area treated.

Patient Reviews for PRP Treatment

"I had a HARD fall on a restaurant tile floor in the summer of 2021 and my left knee took the brunt of the fall."

“I received a steroid injection for a trip in November 2021 and it did help a bit but then it wore off. After PRP # 1 injection, I had immediate relief from pain behind my knee cap and the pain has lessened with each injection. I am currently starting injections in my right knee now. I really enjoy PRP because you use your own stem cells to help heal your body. If Dr. Hamad recommends PRP for your joint, I also recommend it because it is your own stem cells, no rejection, no surgery, and little downtime.”
