Your Health is our top priority!

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy in Charlotte

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is one of the latest cutting-edge pain management approaches in treating most sports injuries and other musculoskeletal conditions. This is a non-surgical procedure that provides fast, effective and long-lasting relief from pain and discomfort.

PRP therapy is a type of regenerative medicine that provides an optimum healing process to injuries while promoting mobility and functionality. This treatment uses autologous blood with concentrations of platelets above baseline levels that contain several growth factors.

PRP procedure also boosts the healing process of injuries by enhancing the growth factors released by platelets to recruit reparative cells. It also helps augment tissue repair and accelerate pain reduction of affected areas.

Dr. Ahmad Uses The Angel® System Machine

Dr. Ahmad uses the Angel® System to produce the concentration of PRP substance needed for your pain management treatment. This machine uses 3-sensor technology (3ST) that can be configured to customize PRP substance concentrations.

The Angel® System is a fully automated technology that has the capacity to deliver platelet concentrations with adjustable leukocyte concentration. These concentrated PRP substances  are safe because we use the patient’s own blood while following the FDA minimal manipulation guidelines.
