Soccer Star Edson Buddle has Knee PRP
Tampa, Saint Petersburg, and Clearwater, FL
After a chronic knee ailment a torn meniscus did not respond to surgery. The soccer star opted for Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). Many elite athletes are turning to Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for knee problems. Kobe Bryant, Tiger Woods, Rafael Nadal, and Troy Polamalu all have had their knees treated.
Dennis M. Lox, MD, has treated many soccer players. Soccer is a grueling sport and players are prone to a variety of sports injuries. Dr. Lox has treated knee meniscal tears, failed knee surgery, ankle, and hip disorders, and even avascular necrosis (AVN) of several soccer players. Avascular necrosis (AVN) occurs when the blood supply to a bone has been disrupted leading to bone cell death. AVN has been treated with PRP and Stem Cell Therapy in an attempt to avoid joint fusion, or joint replacement that would be career ending for an athlete.
So if it’s your knee, and soccer is your game, don’t let an ongoing injury keep you down.
