Mr. Kannegieter will shortly be offering PRP injections to his patients at the Baddow Hospital, Chelmsford. Please contact Kann Foot Surgery for more information on this treatment.
What is a PRP Injection?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is blood plasma with concentrated platelets and it is incredible rich in restorative growth factors that are vital to initiate tissue repair and regeneration.
PRP injections involve taking a sample of the patients’ blood and separating out the plasma to inject back into the affected tissue to promote healing and repair.
What are the Benefits of This Treatment?
Patients can typically see a significant improvement in their foot and ankle pain symptoms and the use of PRP injections can often eliminate the need for more aggressive treatments, such as long-term medication or surgery, as well as a remarkable return of function and a much shorter recovery time.
Mr. Kannegieter looks forward to sharing more about this exciting new treatment shortly with his patients.
As well as PRP injections Mr. Kannegieter can offer patients who present with foot and ankle pain steroid (cortisone) and Durolane injections. Find out more by clicking the below links.
