An Alternative Injection
for Pain Relief
Platelet-rich Plasma is the latest outpatient procedure in regenerative medicine.
Find restoration through your body’s own natural healing process.
What is PRP?
This minimally-invasive, outpatient procedure may offer significant relief and long-term benefits for those who suffer from mild to moderate arthritis or injuries to the tendons, ligaments or joints.
An injection of Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can provide long-term pain relief by stimulating the body to produce more reparative cells, accelerating the natural healing process.
Benefits of PRP:
- PRP preserves and heals the joints
- Stops the acceleration of early degenerative disease
- Offers long-term pain relief for most patients
“Regenerative therapy is completely different from conventional medicine. The treatment utilizes the natural resources of the body to repair itself.” -Dr. John J. McLaughlin, Board Certified, Fellowship Trained Interventional Radiologist
What can I expect during PRP treatment?
PRP is quick and delivered with minimal discomfort. Allow for 4 to 6 weeks for the growth factors to become effective and provide relief from pain. Results vary by individual but can last for 9-12 months.

What Our Patients are Saying
“This was not a fun appointment for me, and I was super nervous, but Dr. Doherty and his team were the best medical professionals I think I have ever encountered! They took their time with me, explained everything, and even held my hand! I cannot thank you all enough for the amazing care you showed me.”
“My very positive experience was largely because of Shelly. She was very professional, yet very empathetic and caring. She moved through the steps leading up to the procedure with a calm, reassuring manner. She explained everything thoroughly and made sure I was comfortable. I felt like I was in very good hands.”
“Always nervous about a procedure I know nothing about; Jamie was very sweet and explained everything to me and answered all questions. Doctor was very nice and also answered all my questions. If I need a biopsy, VIVA is certainly the place I would go or take a loved one. Thank you.”
