Roscoe Village has successfully treated more than 1300 dogs and cats for degenerative joint disease also know as arthritis. We have been able to not only eliminate the patients pain but also discontinue all pain medications on virtually all patients treated. Platelet Rich Plasma is produced from the patients blood. The red blood cells and white blood cells are removed by centrifuging the blood sample and then the platelet ( which is a clotting cell) is activated. Once activated, the platelet relates growth factors and anti-inflammatories that are very powerful. For more information regarding this ground breaking treatment, please call our hospital at 773-549-3131.
