“How much does PRP treatment cost?” While this is a common question, a better question would be “How much does the type of PRP most likely to successfully heal my injury cost?” This distinction is very important, as communities are becoming flooded with technicians and doctors-who are not orthopedic surgeons- offering “PRP” at low prices. Even though it comes from your own blood, the PRP you buy at a slightly cheaper price from a non-surgeon may not be of the same quality or as effective as PRP treatments provided by a qualified orthopedic surgeon like Dr. Bennett who has many years of experience customizing PRP for his patients. Dr. Bennett”s charges range between $799 and $1100 for a single procedure for one site. The majority cost $899. However, with multiple sites and depending upon the patient’s desire, he can at times get the cost for treatment for each procedure down as low as $650. Platelet rich plasma, or PRP, may be prepared with different concentrations of platelets, with or without white blood cells, and with or without stem cells from the blood. Studies have shown that different preparations of PRP work better for different types of tissues and injuries. This is important to note, because necessarily if a doctor outsources to a technician or treats all of his or her patients the same way, then the results will not be optimal for all the patients. Dr. Bennett actually owns his own equipment and has three different centrifuges made by three different companies. This helps Dr. Bennett create the right PRP for each individual patient to optimize their results, rather than offering “one size fits all” treatment. Dr. Bennett actually, on occasion, uses different types of PRP at different times on the same injury site to optimize results. You should not necessarily be getting the same kind of PRP as your neighbor, and Dr. Bennett, with his highly specialized knowledge of the musculoskeletal system, has the skill and experience to prepare the right PRP for his patients.
While getting injected with your own blood is not likely to harm you, patients should still be wary of seeking cheaper PRP treatment for musculoskeletal injuries. Doctors who are not surgeons may only gain experience from lab models, pictures and cadavers. Dr. Bennett, however, as an experienced orthopedic surgeon, is intimately acquainted with the musculoskeletal system, operating on knees, hips, shoulders, and elbows regularly. As a patient, you need a surgeon who can pinpoint and guide a needle with precision to your injury. An orthopedic surgeon is specifically qualified to do this, and Dr. Bennett owns ultrasound equipment that allows him to guide a needle with millimeter precision to the injury.
Other services and supplies are included in Dr. Bennett’s price as well. The same phlebotomist (person who draws blood) comes directly to Dr. Bennett’s patients, in his office, for better service, comfort, and convenience. Dr. Bennett’s patients are not sent to any outside lab, to stand in line for a blood draw. Everything happens at one location inside Dr. Bennett’s office. Special containers that fit into the centrifuge equipment are used in the containment and separation of blood parts. Anticoagulants are also included in Dr. Bennett’s price. Other locations offer PRP downwards towards $500. To offer competitive prices, Bennett Orthopedics and Sportsmedicine has 5! different PRP processing systems that create different types of PRP and with this approach he was able to create a price menu. In the long run, it is often less expensive to do something right the first time. While not the cheapest price on the market, Dr. Bennett’s tools, experience, and specialized knowledge allow him to offer a better value to his patients. Unlike other locations, you will not be coming back for numerous and multiple injections week after week after week
