Regenerative Medicine Injection-Based Procedures for Knee Osteoarthritis, Meniscus Tears, Tendon & Ligament Tears, Overuse Injuries and More.

Interventional Orthopedic Procedures are non-surgical injection-based treatment solutions for people suffering from knee pain due to common injuries to the knee Meniscus, ACL,  MCL, and other structures, or who are experiencing degenerative conditions such as Osteoarthritis. These procedures utilize concentrated repair cells that are obtained from your own bone marrow or blood to promote your body’s own natural ability to heal.

Traditional options for patients suffering from these conditions include arthroscopic knee surgery to repair ligament tears, meniscus, or total knee replacement. With these types of surgeries, months of rehab are required, and the patient must be aware of and fully prepared to take on the risks. As an alternative, interventional orthopedic procedures are designed to help reduce knee pain and improve function with precise highly specific image-guided medical procedures.

Your Alternative to Knee Surgery

Surgical options for those dealing with painful knee issues range from arthroscopic knee surgery to total knee joint replacement. Recent research has shown that some of the most popular arthroscopic surgeries, such as meniscectomy, provide little benefit to the patient. Knee replacement is extremely traumatic and carries risks of chronic pain and toxic wear particles entering the bloodstream. Surgical risks aside, all surgeries require months of painful rehab to regain strength and mobility. Most knee surgeries also accelerate the cascade of degeneration that leads to Osteoarthritis.

We have seen exciting results on difficult cases, such as complete muscle and ligament tears, and have helped many patients with arthritis avoid knee replacement and continue to do the things they love with little or no pain. Most patients experience little downtime from their procedure and are encouraged to return to activity as they begin to feel better.

Your physician will determine if you are, or are not, a candidate for these procedures and recommend surgery if that’s what’s needed

How Regenerative Medicine Works

Effective Bone Marrow Concentrate Treatment

Bone Marrow Concentrate

Regenerative Medicine Bone Marrow Concentrate contains stem cells. These repair cells from your own body live inside all of us in various tissues, poised to leap into action to repair damage as it occurs. As we age or have big injuries, we may not be able to recruit enough of these cells to the site to fully repair the area. Our treatments help overcome this problem by harvesting Bone Marrow from an area of the back of the hip that contains a dense population of these important cells and then concentrating those cells before precisely injecting them into the injured area using advanced imaging guidance. The goal of the procedure is to reduce pain and improve function by promoting the body’s own ability to heal naturally and can be used for a wide range of orthopedic conditions. Your doctor will evaluate your condition and your imaging to determine whether a bone marrow concentrate or platelet-based treatment is the best option for your orthopedic condition.

Effective PRP Procedures

Super Concentrated Platelet Rich Plasma & Platelet Lysate Procedures

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Platelet Lysate are Platelet procedures that contain healing growth factors from your own blood that promote your body’s natural ability to repair itself. The use of PRP to treat joint, tendon, ligament, and muscle injuries is becoming well known, thanks to exposure from professional athletes. Platelet injections have a stimulating effect on the repair cells within the targeted area, making those cells work harder to perform their natural job of healing the body. Regenerative Medicine PRP procedures are performed with high-level imaging guidance to ensure the most accurate placements of cells into the desired area. Our Advanced Platelet Procedures are more concentrated and purer than PRP created by the automated machines used at most regenerative medicine clinics, increasing its ability to stimulate the body’s natural healing response. Platelet procedures are commonly used for soft tissue injuries, mild arthritis, spine conditions, and around nerves.
