PET

petPlatelet Enrichment Therapy (PET) is a recent innovative development (a branch of regenerative medicine) using high tech electrostatic filtration to provide platelet rich plasma (PRP) derived from 55ml of the patients blood yielding a volume sufficient to treat 2 smaller joints (elbow for example).

Chemical factors released from the platelets ‘switch on’ quiescent adult stem cells in the tissue environment to positively modify the disease process and achieve clinical benefit. This is usually performed as a one off treatment and we have been delighted with some early results. This branch of medicine is growing rapidly with data massing.
