Dr. Fortin treated my pain and inflammation with the red laser technique and repaired the torn meniscus with precision image guided regenerative therapies. The recovery time was quicker than I could have imagined.” – L. Logue

She performs ultrasound guided injections to ensure proper needle placement and improve safety of the procedure.
What Are The Benefits Of Precision Image Guided Regenerative Therapy?
During the procedure, Dr. Fortin takes potent regenerative cells or their signaling molecules and injects them under ultrasound guidance directly into the area of desired healing.
The regenerative cells or exosomes are often injected along with PRP/PRF. This regenerative medicine therapy contains growth factors and signaling molecules combined with advanced supportive properties to restore tissue to healthy functioning. Little to no downtime is needed and the procedure is minimally invasive.

PRP/PRF Injections Q & A
What is the difference between PRP and PRF?
Dr. Fortin most often combines these two regenerative techniques during her procedure. Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is a biomaterial derived from a person’s own blood, similar to platelet-rich plasma (PRP). However, PRF differs from PRP in that it is processed in a way that results in the formation of a fibrin matrix, creating a three-dimensional scaffold that enhances the release and retention of growth factors, promoting tissue healing and regeneration over a more extended period of time compared to PRP.
What Happens During PRP/PRF Therapy?
During your PRP/PRF session, a small amount of blood is drawn, like a routine blood test. The blood sample is placed into a centrifuge to separate out the platelet-rich plasma from the red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelet poor plasma.
How Can PRP/PRF Help Me?
PRP/PRF boosts cellular repair and helps your body to recreate newer, healthier tissues. PRP/PRF therapy may help with:
- Tendon and ligament injuries
- Internal derangement of the knee
- Muscle injuries
- Bone fractures
- Hair Loss
- Aged skin
When Will PRP/PRF Start Working?
Your powerful regenerative cells jump into action as the PRP/PRF enters your body. But it takes time for cells and tissues to heal. Some patients express feeling a bit more pain during the first week or two after their injection due to the body’s natural inflammatory response to the procedure.
After inflammation subsides and tissues start healing, you should start noticing an improvement within four to six weeks.
Dr. Fortin lets you know how long it will likely take to achieve the best results for your specific condition. If you don’t get the relief you need with your first injection, you can have the PRP/PRF process repeated several weeks later as sometimes required
Are PRP/PRF Injections Painful?
It’s normal to feel some pinching or burning during your PRP/PRF injection, although the final injection process only lasts a few seconds. Dr. Fortin utilizes local anesthesia prior to the injection.
Some areas are more sensitive than others, and everyone has a different pain tolerance level. If you know you’re sensitive to injections, let Dr. Fortin know before getting started.
