We now have a meta-analyis of 10 level 1 studies (level 1 being the highest calibre of studies) showing that platelet-rich plasma (PRP) should be offered for knee osteoarthritis as it is more effective than hyaluronic acid injections (a frequently used treatment) at the 1 year mark. You can find the article about this under our research tab. This is encouraging news for those of us offering and receiving PRP.
