On our local news cast in Fresno, CA I saw a Dr. Alan Mishra help tennis elbow with Platlet Rich Plasma. It heals degenerative cartliage. Is this the correct Dr.Mishra? If so, I'd like to know if this treatment could possibly help knees with degernative arthritis. I don't see how it could hurt to try since it is a person's own platlets that are used. Thanks
