PRP Injections for the Hip Joint/Osteoarthritis

The Virginia Cartilage Institute will soon be offering platelet rich plasma injections for the hip. This is now possible due to new ultrasound equipment that allows proper visualization of the hip joint. There are currently (3) well documented studies of PRP published in the peer-reviewed medical literature showing impressive efficacy for osteoarthritis in those patients with mild to moderate disease. those patients with severe disease and stiffness are most likely better served by arthroplasty.
