A few years ago the Puerto Rico government implemented several tax incentive decrees collectively known as Act 60, to incentive investors, business leaders and successful entrepreneurs to move to the island with their families and generate economic activity.

Platelet Rich Plasma: What It Is and When to Use It

Posted by Miguel Agrait, MD on Aug 14, 2020 9:43:43 AM

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a highly concentrated collection of plasma obtained from a patient’s own blood. A sample of blood is taken from the patient, then via centrifuge, concentrated down to a collection of platelets, proteins, enzymes, and growth factors that are key in the body’s own regenerative process. This distilled collection can then be injected into an area of injury in order to accelerate healing. It has been used extensively in the world of professional sports, but is also used around the world for patients and athletes of all skill levels.
