GPS Platelet Concentrate System
Surgeons at Saint Joseph Mount Sterling are putting into practice one of the recent breakthroughs in medicine-the natural healing power found in human blood.
Using the patient's own blood drawn the day of surgery, surgeons are able to create a concentrated "platelet gel" called the GPS Platelet Concentrate System, that promotes faster healing, helps control bleeding, reduces pain and helps prevent infection when applied to the surgical wound site.
At Mount Sterling,the use of platelet gel is just one more important step in our dedication to improved patient care and outcomes. If you are interested in GPS being used during your surgery, please talk to your doctor to see if you are a candidate.
