Platelet Rich Plasma

Dr. Pop-Moody is trained in cutting edge technology allowing her to perfrom untrasound guided injections of platlelet rich plasma into damaged tendons, ligaments and cartilage which permits the injured tissue to develop new tissue. As the tissue matures, it begins to shrink causing the tightening and strengthening of the targeted tendons, ligaments or cartilage. Healing of the tissue brings relief of pain. Athletes like Koby Bryant have used this technology for years and now it is available to patients at our clinic.
