Dr. Blatman has 8 years of experience using platelet-rich plasma technology to repair and regrow injured tendons, fascia, and joint cartilage. He has recently become certified to use the same platelet-rich plasma technology to rejuvenate the tissue around a worman’s urethra to help stop urinary stress incontinence. Moreover, this same technology can help regenerate sexual function in women and men with a painless injection.
