Regenerative Medicine | Bill Nye the Science Guy Got PRP Therapy for “Dancing With The Stars” Injury
Date:1/15/2014

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 15, 2014

After suffering a leg injury during a fall on “Dancing With the Stars,” Bill Nye the Science Guy received an innovative treatment known as platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) in the hope of returning to the stage in the subsequent week. Return he did, and he brought with him a layman’s explanation of PRP, the kind of science-made-simple description his legions of fans know him for.

According to Nye, he received “platelet-rich plasma, which is where they take platelets from your blood in your arm, and poke them into the tendon and to-be-repaired area. It excites the cells in the right way to bring ‘em around faster than they would otherwise.”

Say James Hays, President and CEO of PlasmaGenix, Inc. in Los Angeles, “Mr. Nye’s description is nearly spot on in terms of how regenerative medicine speeds healing — though I’d suggest that the next time he needs a treatment, he pays a visit to our offices. We don’t ‘poke’ our patients anywhere during PRP therapy!”

Dr. John Simmonds, an orthopedic surgeon and Chief Medical Officer, further explains the technicalities of how PRP works. “The procedure starts by drawing blood from a patient. This blood is spun in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets and growth factors. When injected into the site of an injury, the PRP has the potential to supercharge the healing process and reduce pain.”
