I had it done on 7/1. See the other thread that has "Topaz" and "Plasma" in the title.

Re: i am interested in prp for my achilles tendon.

Ive never heard of PRP, or Plasma, but I have had Topaz. I had it done on my arch and heel. The recovery wasn't too bad, and it did seem to relieve most of my arch pain. My doctor now, Dr. Kelikian, out of Chicago... said he was undecided about it. He has done them and has referred people to have it done, but he says hes not absolutely sure how he feels about it now, seeing as there havent really been extensive studies and such.
