Looking for a surgical alternative that will provide lasting pain relief and healing power?
Regenerative medicine is an exciting and revolutionary field of orthopedics designed to provide the benefits you seek without surgery. It is an excellent option for sports injuries, sprains and strains, and joint damage. Southwest Orthopedic Associates uses innovative methods for treating orthopedic conditions and injuries using regenerative therapies with stem cells and platelet-rich plasma.
The use of your own body’s tissue to help heal injury and disease is known as regenerative medicine. Regenerative techniques are highly successful because we use your own stem cells, taken from bone marrow or fat tissue, to deliver healing therapy right where you need it. Because new collagen and healthy tissues are being regenerated beneath the surface, the benefits of regenerative therapy are cumulative, so you have a better chance of avoiding surgery. Depending on your age, health, and condition, you may be a candidate for stem cell therapy, PRP therapy, or a combination of these therapies.
