OrthoBiologics is cellular or regenerative therapy that enhances our bodies’ own natural healing processes, creating viable alternatives to invasive surgeries and prescription painkillers. These minimally invasive procedures are ideal for patients looking to avoid long recovery times and narcotics following a traumatic joint replacement surgery. OrthoBiologics use healthy cells to rebuild body tissue where degeneration or injury has occurred. It can be particularly effective in treating conditions related to a loss of cartilage or damage to tendons and ligaments, whether it is caused by injury or aging. The result is an accelerated and natural healing process.
Conditions OrthoBiologics can treat:
- Hip pain
- Knee degeneration, ACL & MCL injuries
- Elbow injuries, tendonitis
- Shoulder and rotator cuff conditions
- Ankle issues
- Injuries related to damaged or degenerative tendons, cartilage or muscles
- many more orthopedic conditions
How it Works:
The restorative therapies within the scope of OrthoBiologics stem from optimizing our bodies’ own natural healing processes and utilizing them to repair degenerating cartilage, muscle tissues, tendons and ligaments. These minimally invasive procedures take naturally occurring cells that have the ability to differentiate – meaning they can transform into any other cell in the body – and apply them to damaged areas; allowing them to promote the regeneration and repair of damaged tissues. Sourcing healthy, high-functioning cells from other areas of our bodies and relocating them to these damaged areas allows them to signal repair and restore the system for healthy function.
OrthoBiologic procedures include:
- Platelet Rich Plasma
- Umbilical Cord/Wharton’s Jelly
- Amniotic Allograft
- Stromal Vascular Fraction(SVF)/Adipose-Derived Stem Cells
Additional minimally invasive therapies we offer are:
- Vitamin B12 Injections
- Myofascial Trigger Point Injections
