Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am board certified and I have 40 years of patient experience. I am happy to help you. I'm sorry you are having hip pain. I am not an Orthopedist but I will give you a logical/medical response. If you don't agree, I will opt out and let you wait for an Ortho doc to respond.
The answer to your question is if you receive both the steroid and the protein rich plasma at the same time, how do you know which one , if either, helped you to reduce or eliminate your pain. I am familiar with PRP and have not found it to be very effective in treating large joint disease/pain. The steroid injection alone may provide short term relief after the fluid is removed. The anti-inflammatory action of the steroid is beneficial.
I am available to answer any additional questions you may have. Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance. I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you
