What is PRP?

For this procedure, a blood sample is taken from the patient himself. The blood sample taken is condensed under laboratory conditions and after the platelet cells in its content are multiplied, it is ready to be injected back into the body. In this newly created plasma, we can say that there are about 100 times more platelet cells compared to normal.
