There are several studies showing varying results with PRP. What makes interpreting PRP data so difficult is that there is no standardization of the various components of the final PRP formula and each PRP system produces a different cellular mixture which impacts the clinical effect. Since several different types of PRP are bundled together in meta-analyses, it is difficult to derive a meaningful interpretation of results.
Every PRP Provider should know which factors determine an Optimal PRP formula.
Many PRP systems require a 60 mL blood draw for a single treatment site and up to 120 mL for 2 treatment sites. The Tropocells® system uses a patent-protected gel separation technology that results in high platelet yields so only 11 mL of blood is needed for a single treatment site (22 mL for two treatment sites).
Some PRP systems are cumbersome and require multiple steps and double spin cycles. Tropocells® is one of the easiest PRP systems to use with a single 10 minute spin time followed by platelet resuspension and drawing up of the PRP.
PRP is not currently covered by insurance and is a cash-pay treatment. Pricing for this treatment varies by area. We can provide ballpark pricing used by other clinics to help establish pricing for your PRP practice.
Our team is ready to help clinicians and their staff launch their PRP practice. Following practice launch, we continue to provide literature updates, ongoing education and support to our clients.
