REGENERATIVE ORTHOPEDIC FOOT AND ANKLE TREATMENTS
Use your own stem cells to accelerate the healing process
Regenerative Medicine Procedures for Foot & Ankle conditions.
Regenerative Medicine Procedures are non-surgical injection-based treatments for people suffering from foot and ankle injuries, arthritis, or other conditions that cause pain. 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.
Current surgical treatment options for common ankle injuries and arthritis, include ankle arthroscopy to “clean up” damaged cartilage, fusion of ankle bones where cartilage has been lost, and tendon grafts screwed in place to strengthen loose connections between bones. All are painful and are often not be effective in the long run. These surgeries typically involve a painful post-surgical recovery with a lengthy rehab period to restore strength and mobility to the ankle. Regenerative Medicine treatments may help reduce pain and improve function for those with foot or ankle pain due to injury or arthritis eliminating the need for these invasive surgeries.
Commonly Treated Ankle & Foot Conditions
Ankle Ligament Tears, Sprains and Instability of the Ankle Joint When the ligaments that hold the bones of the ankle joint together are partially torn or stretched, as in the case of a bad sprain or repeated minor sprains, they can become painful, loose, and weak. This changes how you walk, putting painful stress on other joints of the foot, as well as making it more likely that you will sprain the ankle again. This leads to a cycle of chronic pain and instability.
Considering Ankle Surgery, Fusion or Replacement?
As an alternative to surgery and the long recuperative period involved, tears to Foot and Ankle tendons and ligaments and Ankle Arthritis can often be treated with the healing agents from your own body, promoting your body’s ability to do its natural job of healing. Regenerative Medicine may help alleviate pain and improve function with a highly specialized, non-surgical, precise image-guided injection procedure. Patients are often encouraged to walk the same day, and most experience little downtime from the procedure.

Stem Cell Therapy Process
Our expert physicians will meet with you by phone or in-person to review your medical history and will determine if you’re a good candidate for stem cell therapy. If we agree stem cell therapy can help, we’ll schedule your first appointment in our office.
In most cases our outpatient treatment takes 2-4 hours and is nearly pain free. You do not have to “go under.” On the day of your procedure, our physicians will collect your stem cells. Fat is obtained from the low back or abdomen, bone marrow is obtained from the back part of the hip. After stem cell collection, you will relax in a private room. Once processed, your stem cells will be injected into the area of need using a highly sophisticated ultrasound instrument with enhanced needle visualization for precise delivery of your stem cells. In some cases, we also administer an IV of your stem cells during treatment to further enhance your body’s natural healing process.
There is virtually no recovery time from your stem cell therapy procedure. Most people are back to work the following day.
