"Having played professional sport from 1989-2008 I’ve amassed plenty of aches and pains after numerous operations. I’ve been around the world and seen some of the best Doctors and surgeons out there, and Ram has been right up there with his care and skill. Never in a rush, he’s kind, compassionate and very professional. Not only helped me with knee and shoulder pain, he’s also treated my wife for elbow pain. My son is now going to see him as he’s seen a difference in how his parents are moving. Thanks for all your help, Darren Gough and Anna Gough"

What is an Ultrasound Guided PRP Injection for Tennis Elbow?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections are rich in growth factors (help in repairing the cell and its growth) and prepared from the patient’s own blood. Separated growth factors from the patient’s blood are injected back into the affected area of the same patient. PRP’s ability to heal and even regenerate injured or ageing tendons, ligaments and joints, provides some patients with an alternative to surgery. PRP therapy may reduce the required healing time for the injuries (especially for sports injuries and early Arthritis); otherwise, athletes/sports professionals may require longer periods of rest from their sports-related activities.
