Our doctors are dedicated to offering the most advanced and promising treatments for our patients. This includes regenerative medicine procedures to promote the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints.
Orthopaedic Associates offers stem cell, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), and allograft injections. Stem cell treatments are concentrations of the patient’s own bone marrow. After injection back into the area of injury or pain, these cells can transform into several kinds of cells that repair and regenerate the injured part. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is extracted from the patient’s own blood, concentrated, and injected at the treatment site. PRP is intended to start a cascade of cellular reactions to promote healing. Allograft injections can be used in the same manner as stem cells and PRP. All three types of injections have shown promise in treating, amongst other things: arthritis, tennis elbow, Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff disorders, and ligament damage.
Our doctors at Orthopaedic Associates have completed additional training in regenerative medicine procedures and have the expertise and experience to assess, diagnose, and treat your injury or condition.
