PRP History & Current Studies

PRP therapy has been featured in numerous headlines. Professional athletes have shared their success stories after receiving PRP injections. You may have heard stories about Kobe Bryant, Alex Rodriguez, Hines Ward, Troy Polamalu, and Takashi Saito. These athletes were injured but were able to return to the game sooner because they had PRP therapy instead of surgery.

Many patients don’t know about PRP therapy, so we make it a priority to educate patients about it. For those who do know about PRP therapy, they will be in good hands with Dr. Steve Meadows. He was one of the first orthopedic surgeons to use it South Florida.

PRP therapy is relatively new to orthopedic medicine. Dr. Meadows has been using it since 2009; however, dentists have used PRP therapy to promote healing after jaw reconstructive surgery for more than 20 years. 

More studies are being done to expand PRP therapy for use in other areas of medicine, such as cardiology, urology, ophthalmology, and orthopedics. The results show the benefits of PRP therapy are the same – it facilitates the body’s natural healing process for a faster recovery.

With mounting evidence for PRP therapy’s effectiveness, researchers are confident that it will be covered by insurance in the future. Ask Dr. Meadows about PRP therapy during your next appointment. He stays up-to-date with the latest news and research so that he can better treat his patients, with or without surgery.
