How do you prepare the PRP?
An injury location-determined amount of blood is drawn from the patient. The blood is then centrifuged with a two spin process to obtain a balance between the highest yields of platelets and the highest cell viabilities. There exists an excellent balance between yield and viability with the first spin done for ten minutes at 160g and then second spin done for fifteen minutes at 250g.
Can you do multiple injection sites at one time?
Yes, within reason, multiple sites can be treated on the same day. Taken into consideration is the ability to make enough PRP, the application sites and the potential for discomfort in the patient post-procedure. Boulder Biologics charges an additional $150 per injection on top of the base PRP cost.
Does insurance cover PRP therapy?
No, at this time PRP is not covered by insurance and is an out-of-pocket cost.
