Yes! We Now Have PRP—Platelet Rich Plasma Injection Therapy

Platelet Rich Plasma, also known as “PRP,” is a volume of fractionated plasma taken from your own blood. We draw a few tubes of blood, spin it with a centrifuge, and separate the portion which contains concentrated platelets. These are then injected into your diseased joints to promote tissue repair and accelerated healing.

Dr. Jillian Shannon is SFNM's newest doctor. She has a general naturopathic practice and specializes in regenerative medicine including BHRT, joint injections and IV therapies. She has been working closely with other practitioners specializing in functional endocrinology and anti-aging medicine with the use of stem cells, ozone, and PRP. She is available full time at SFNM and is accepting new patients.
