Alocuro Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy can assist with healing and improved outcomes for your patients with tendon and ligament conditions, as well as osteoarthritic joints. Imaging Associates utilises the latest Alocuro™ Regenerative Cellular Therapy at our Box Hill and Camberwell Clinics.
PRP injections harness the natural healing properties found in our blood to stimulate the body’s regenerative mechanisms in targeted areas. Alocuro’s™ TGA approved device enables the extraction of PRP with enhanced platelet concentration, growth factors, and bio-active proteins crucial for tissue regeneration and healing. These concentrated platelets are then injected under image guidance by a radiologist, precisely targeting the site of injury or tissue damage. By doing so, the platelets release growth factors that promote tissue regeneration, accelerate healing, and reduce inflammation. This approach has shown exceptional clinical outcomes, particularly for chronic tendon and ligament pathologies.
PRP therapy is a simple procedure, taking around 30 minutes, a blood sample is collected from the patient, and placed into a PRP device. After centrifugation, the platelets are concentrated into a small volume of plasma, which is then collected for injection into the targeted area by a radiologist under image guidance (ensuring precise needle placement).
Alocuro PRP injections can be particularly effective in the following scenarios:
As with any treatment, patient suitability for PRP should be assessed by a qualified healthcare professional. Combined with weight loss, structured exercise programs, and a healthy lifestyle, PRP injections can optimise patient recovery and outcomes.
