Pre-procedural restrictions are necessary to ensure a good quality PRP with high platelet integrity. Please let your provider know what medications and supplements you are currently taking so that they may advise you appropriately.
Please adhere to the following guidelines:
- Stop NSAIDs 1-week pre-procedure (2 weeks is most optimal)
- Ideally, stop any blood thinners 3-5 days pre-procedure. Consult with your prescribing provider to ensure that this can be done safely
- Stop any anti-inflammatory supplements 1 week prior to the procedure (eg. Vitamin E, turmeric, curcumin, fish oil, ginseng, ginkgo, ginger, garlic extract, etc.)
- Arrive early to your appointment and make sure that you are well-hydrated
