Tiger Woods Uses PRP Regenerative Therapy

“Professional golf player, Tiger Woods, received a procedure known as platelet-rich plasma injections. In this procedure, doctors draw blood, place it in a centrifuge to separate the blood’s plasma from red blood cells, and then injects it into the injured area. ”

“This process is said to speed up healing because it mimics how blood automatically swells around an injured site. In 2008, Woods could have elected for knee reconstruction surgery but chose regenerative therapy due to the shorter recovery time.”
