NBC New York—November 5, 2010

Dr. Brian Halpern, sports medicine physician in the Sports Medicine and Shoulder Service, discusses the use of platelet rich plasma (PRP) for non-professional athletes suffering from chronic tendon overload. PRP is a non-operative procedure where patients are injected with their own blood platelets to promote healing and to possibly delay joint replacement procedures.
