How Safe Is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?

Samuel G Oltman, ND, RMSK

Properly made, expertly delivered PRP is effective– but is it safe? It’s an important question that can help you make the most informed decision. 

PRP safe

PRP is exceptionally safe when done correctly. Published complication rates are between 0-5% and can include (1,2): 

Part of safety is knowing exactly where the medicine goes. That is where Dr. Oltman’s RMSK credential and ultrasound-guidance comes in:

  • Ultrasound-guided (USG) injections (regardless of what is being injected) have a complication rate of 1.2% and 99% of those are minor (3). 

  • Accuracy of USG injections is markedly higher than “landmark based” injection. A number of studies have found landmark based injections to be under 50% accuracy, while USG is always 95+% (4). 

If you’re going to spend your hard-earned money on treatment you need to know that it’s effective, that the medicine goes to the correct place, and that it’s safe. At Cascade Regenerative Medicine we do all three with exceptional professionalism and superior results. Come see the difference and schedule today
