Platelet infused plasma treatment

Hi, I just wondered if anyone has had experience of platelet infused plasma treatment and if so, what their outcomes were? My consultant has recommended this for OA knee and is approaching my insurance company to see if they will cover it.

    Hi @LucyC

    I have found this link to the NHS website which you might find helpful until you get some feedback from members who have had experience of this treatment.

  • Hi @LucyC

    Thanks for your post to the Helpline. (Thanks Poppyjane for sharing the NICE information about this.)

    I don't know how you are doing with your daily physio exercises and healthy eating - but the evidence for both of these is so strong, that it's worth stressing their importance.

    If you particularly want to hear from other people with arthritis and their experiences, the Living with arthritis section of the Online Community is the place to try posting.

    Do give us a call on our freephone 0800 5200520 if you'd like to talk over things.

    best wishes
