Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) at Rheumatology at DRHC Dubai

At Dr. Rami Hamed Medical Center, Dubai, our rheumatology clinic offers Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) therapy as an innovative treatment option for various Rheumatology conditions. PRF therapy involves using the patient's own blood to stimulate healing and reduce inflammation in affected joints and tissues.

What is Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF)?

Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) is a type of regenerative medicine treatment that utilizes the patient's own blood to promote healing and tissue regeneration. PRF is rich in platelets, growth factors, and other bioactive proteins that can accelerate the body's natural healing process.

How does Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) Work?

PRF therapy works by delivering a high concentration of platelets and growth factors to the affected area, which can enhance tissue repair and regeneration. The growth factors and bioactive proteins in PRF can stimulate the production of new collagen and blood vessels, improve blood flow, and reduce inflammation.

When is Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) Used?

PRF therapy is commonly used to treat various musculoskeletal conditions, including:

What to Expect During a Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) Treatment?

During a PRF treatment, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient and placed in a centrifuge to separate the platelets and growth factors from the rest of the blood components. The concentrated PRF is then applied to the affected area using a thin needle or as a gel. The procedure is usually quick and relatively painless, and patients can usually resume their normal activities immediately afterward.

PRF therapy offers several benefits, including:

  • Accelerated healing

When to Seek Medical Advice

In some cases, PRF therapy may not be suitable for certain individuals, such as those with a history of allergic reactions to PRF or those with certain medical conditions.
