Toronto PRP Injection

Are there differences in Toronto PRP injection?

Today’s science shows there is a significant difference in where patients get their Toronto PRP Injection. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection uses the patient’s own blood in an attempt to use the blood’s natural healing properties to repair damaged tissue. The key difference is in how much concentration of PRP in comparison to the injury. Without the technology, there is no way of knowing the exact concentration of PRP necessary to your injury.

Where does Studio Athletica stand in comparison to today’s science?  Studio Athletica uses the most advanced PRP system in the market today.  Considered to be the gold standard in medicine and for getting a Toronto PRP injection. It allows the specialist to automatically customize how much concentration of PRP depending on the research and injury.   This is why we get the results we do with confidence and use the industry gold standard in Orthobiologics by Arthrex Inc.  The model is the newest in Toronto regenerative medicine and The Angel System is game-changing.   It allows specialists to change the concentration of any PRP Injection by simply dialing it in.
