Platelet Rich Plasma Injection Therapy Use in Korea

Technorati blog directory
Recently I had the pleasure of meeting Jae Wook Ryu MD PhD from Seoul Korea. Dr Ryu is the team doctor of professional baseball team (Woori Heros). Dr Ryu visited our clinic in Los Angeles all the way from S. Korea to exchange experiences & protocols. We encourage these international meetings and have had physicians visit from other countries as well.

Dr Ryu incorporates additional protocols prior to PRP therapy including acupuncture and nutritional supplementation & IV therapy to stimulate collagen (tissue) growth. Dr Ryu has treated professional athletes including a Korean professional baseball pitcher with great results. PRP holds great promise & hopefully by exchanging ideas with other pioneering docs across the globe we can make great advancements in medicine.

I have a completely torn ACL, partially torn MCL and LCL. Will PRP work for me, or should I not even bother and just stick with surgery?

I would suggest you come in for an evaluation to determine if you are a proper candidate. 310 453 5404.

Has the treatment been done on a completely torn ACL and if so what were the results?

The treatment will not work for a completely torn ACL. It will work with a partially torn ACL. The platelets injected need something to work with. Complete ACL tears have no endpoints.
