Soft Tissue Surgery

Orthopedic and Neurosurgery



Platelet Enhancement Therapy is Available at ISU: Above photos show blood being drawn from the jugular vein (left) and filtered in to capture platelets (middle). The platelet concentrate was injected into the patient's stifle (knee) joints to help treat the pain associated with osteoarthritis (right). Platelet therapy can be used in many orthopedic conditions such as stifle and elbow osteoarthritis, muscle and tendon injuries, as well as to promote wound healing. Please contact Dr. Bergh for more information on this therapy at Iowa State University.
