Treatment of Acute and Chronic Ligament and Tendon Injuries With Platelet Rich Plasma

Platelet rich plasma has been used in previous studies to stimulate faster healing of torn ligaments and tendons in order to help reduce pain and restore normal function. This study aims to prove that non-operative treatment of acute and chronic ligament and tendon injuries with platelet rich plasma will reduce the time needed for participants to heal these injuries and restore function.

We are currently enrolling patients with PATELLAR TENDON INJURIES in the KNEE.

Stanford is currently not accepting patients for this trial.
