The Orthbiologic Institute TOBI Faculty present new research that shows Platelet Rich Plasma PRP effective for Knee Osteoarthritis with 2 year follow up
TOBI (The Orthobiologic Institute) Faculty & colleagues Alberto Gobbi MD, Georgios Karnatzikos MD from Milan, Italy presented new research at the world’s largest gathering of Orthopaedic Surgeons in Chicago, Illinois last week, the AAOS (American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgery).
This study shows PRP Platelet Rich Plasma effective for Knee Osteoarthritis with 2 year follow up.
PRP intra-articular knee injections are effective both in operated and non-operated arthritic knees and can act as a preventive agent of Osteoarthritis, by diminishing pain and improving symptoms and quality of life.
Patients who repeated PRP treatment preserved a better clinical outcome, indicating that PRP injections can provide a better outcome when repeated.
This study builds on our pilot clinical trial for knee arthritis with PRP that showed significant improvement at 1 year follow up. More and more studies are emerging that demonstrate the cost effectiveness and therapeutic benefit of PRP for arthritis.
