Medical science has long known that platelet-rich plasma (PRP) contains a plethora of nutrients and growth factors vital to numerous body functions. Indeed, PRP injections have been used to promote post-surgery wound healing for decades. In recent years we have begun to understand that those same injections can be very useful in musculoskeletal and aesthetic applications as well. That’s what our PRP therapy training is all about.
The Advanced Regenerative Medicine Institute (ARMI) is proud to offer cutting-edge PRP therapy training to aesthetic physicians, sports medicine doctors, internists, primary care doctors, and physicians practicing in a variety of other disciplines. We are also proud to say that our industry-leading training has played a significant role in the emergence of regenerative medicine as an alternative to more traditional treatment options.
Today, doctors who have trained with ARMI are offering PRP therapy as an alternative to invasive surgery and long-term pain medication use. Aesthetic physicians are introducing PRP therapy to patients looking to deal with the effects of aging and/or age-related hair loss. The doctors we have already trained are enthusiastic about PRP therapy because it is a safe, minimally invasive treatment for chronic pain, wounds, and aesthetic abnormalities.
What Our Training Covers
If you are a clinician interested in learning more about PRP therapy training, rest assured that the courses we offer are fully comprehensive. We don’t simply put you through a 30-minute slideshow before sending you on your way. Rather, you will learn from lectures given by full-time, board certified physicians with years of knowledge and experience under their belts.
You will follow-up the lectures with hands-on training that allows you to practice some of the techniques discussed during the lectures. You will have plenty of opportunity to ask questions and refine your skills. And once training is complete, you will head home armed with a volume of resources that you can use for ongoing reference as you seek to introduce PRP therapy to your patients.
We train doctors to:
- Harvest PRP Material – The PRP material used in our procedures is autologous material. As such, we train doctors in the most effective techniques for harvesting the blood that will be used for a treatment.
- Process Harvested Material – Once the blood has been drawn from the patient, the resulting material must be processed in a specialized centrifuge that isolates plasma and blood platelets. We train doctors in the proper way to use centrifuge equipment.
- Perform PRP Injections – Finally, doctors are trained in how to properly inject PRP material for the most effective results. This is critically important, as only proper technique will result in maximum efficacy.
Our training concludes with sessions talking about the business side of regenerative medicine. In other words, we teach doctors and clinic representatives how to market PRP therapy. We teach them how to build a profitable practice and then maintain that practice moving forward.
Our next PRP therapy training course is already on the schedule. If you have had any thoughts about introducing PRP therapy to your practice, now is the time to take advantage of training from ARMI. You’ll learn everything you need to know to successfully offer PRP therapy and other regenerative medicine procedures.
