Dr. Silvers became well familiar with the sterile technique as a fourth year Yeshiva College student when he used to prepare cell cultures in a research laboratory at Columbia Medical school. He applies the sterile technique principles that he learned in the research lab to perform the PRP procedures at his office. Dr. Silvers treats one PRP patient at a time to leave no room for cross injecting patients’ blood product specimens.
