Abstract: Osteoarthrosis (OA) represents a failure of the diarthrodial, synovial lined joint. Among the elderly, knee Osteoarthrosis is the most frequent cause of chronic disability [1]. Because of the increased life expectancy, the prevalence of osteoarthrosis is on the rise in the Indian population. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is defined as a volume of plasma with a platelet concentration higher than average in peripheral blood. Many basic, preclinical and even clinical case studies and trails report PRP’s ability to improve musculoskeletal conditions including osteoarthrosis. Our study of platelet rich plasma has thrown up an exciting choice of treatment modality in knee osteoarthrosis, and it has proved efficient in observation period of one year.
