HCA Healthcare/HealthONE’s Centennial Medical Plaza (CMP) announced that Dr. Catherine Logan, orthopedic surgeon, is now performing Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections in both the clinic and operating room. Logan is an orthopedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine, specifically in arthroscopic shoulder and knee surgery.
Platelet-rich plasma is a treatment used for a variety of common orthopedic conditions. The therapy uses injections of a concentration of a patient’s own platelets to enhance the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints.
“When following appropriate indications, our orthopedic research has demonstrated that an individual’s own growth factors and platelets stimulate damaged ligaments and facilitate tissue repair, enhancing the healing process,” says Logan.
The injection is prepared by taking the patient’s own blood and running it through a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets, which are then injected directly into the injured body tissue or joint. This releases growth factors that stimulate and increase the number of reparative cells.
Logan studied health and exercise science at Syracuse University before getting her Master of Science degree in physical therapy from Medical College of Virginia. She began her career at Johns Hopkins Hospital and practiced for seven years before entering medical school at Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston. Following her graduation with a combined M.D./MBA, Logan completed her residency training at the Harvard Combined Orthopedic Residency Program. Following her surgical residency, she entered the prestigious Steadman Philippon Research Institute’s Sports Medicine Fellowship at The Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colorado. Her research has been published in the top peer-reviewed orthopaedic surgery journals.
As a member of the U.S. Ski and Snowboard physician team, Logan travels internationally and nationally to care for these elite athletes. Her clinical interests focus on the care of the adolescent and college athlete, with special interest in mountain and adventure sports. OrthoONE at Centennial Medical Plaza is located at 14000 E. Arapahoe Road #300 in Centennial, phone 303-218-4255.
