Dr. Lintner Interviewed about Platelet Rich Plasma Injections

Dr. David Lintner was recently interviewed on Sports Radio 610 about Platelet Rich Plasma Injections, which is sometimes referred to as, “blood spinning.”

A simple procedure that is completed right in the office, PRP requires drawing blood from the patient and placing it in a centrifuge machine, which separates the patient’s platelets from their blood. Fifteen minutes later, the platelets are injected back into the site of the patient’s injury. The platelets accelerate the healing of injured tissues.
