"Simply put, Platelet Gel has helped my patients recover faster and as such are more appreciative of my work. Platelet Gel has made a significant positive impact on the quality of care that I now offer in my practice. It has no drawbacks, no allergic reactions, no downside whatsoever. Lastly, the service provided by NEPA Perfusion is superlative. The boys, Carmen and Joe, are friendly, informative and always there when needed. I recommend them without hesitation!"
I have been utilizing platelet gel on 100% of my cardiac procedures since 2005. I find great comfort in the hemostasis it provides my patients. Furthermore, PRP is very cost-effective and extremely safe. Also, the bio-engineered hemostasis products on the market tend to be pricey. Finally, I would recommend platelet gel to my colleagues in the surgical community without hesitation.
Our mission is to be the best cardiovascular perfusion and platelet gel service provider and to provide excellent customer service backed by our years of experience and dedication to healthcare.
