Preparing for PRP Injections

At the Stem Cell Clinic of Beverly Hills in Beverly Hills, California , we begin by scheduling an evaluation in order to determine whether or not PRP injections will be an effective treatment for you. We may perform X-ray and/or an MRI before your injection to ensure the proper diagnosis, and to also check for major tears in the tendon or ligament, which may be better treated with surgery.

The PRP injection is an outpatient procedure, and will take approximately an hour. You should not take anti-inflammatories for one week prior to your procedure because it will reduce the effectiveness of the injection.

If you have any questions prior to your scheduled appointment, please contact our office in Fairfax, VA at (310) 409-2244.
