Even Hines Ward used PRP

Are you wondering what PRP is?  PRP means Platelet Rich Plasma and Dr. Stephan Yacoubian can assist you with treatments here at OSS Burbank.  Here is how it works:

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections help the body regenerate and heal by harnessing these growth factors. To obtain the PRP, a small amount of a patient's own blood is drawn. The blood is then spun down in a centrifuge for a few minutes, which isolates the PRP with growth factors. The PRP isolate is then injected back into the injured area. The goal is to enhance the healing environment by concentrating the essential components of repair from the patient's own blood, thus limiting side effects and facilitating healing.
