At Duke Orthopaedics, patients have access to the most cutting-edge treatments available, including platelet-rich plasma injections.
Platelet-rich plasma injection is a non-surgical approach to treating injuries or conditions of the foot and ankle. This may include ligament or tendon problems, plantar fascitis, and many other conditions that affect the foot and ankle.
Our doctors closely assess each patient to determine if this procedure is appropriate for the patient’s needs.
In this procedure, doctors collect the patient’s own blood and extract concentrated plasma from the blood.
Using an ultrasound to guide the needle, the doctor injects the plasma directly into the patients injured portion of the foot or ankle.
The concentrated platelets contain growth factors that encourage tissue recovery and allow the injured tendon, ligament, or other foot or ankle condition to heal.
Doctors at Duke Orthopaedics are skilled at offering this innovative treatment. They have the experience and expertise to correctly diagnose an injury that would benefit from this procedure and offer the precision and care needed to direct the platelet-rich injection.
