Healing Aches and Pains (Without Surgery)
Chronic pain and orthopaedic injuries in your knees, hips, and other joints are frustrating to manage. If your joint pain treatment has been a series of minor temporary fixes, you may feel like surgery is your only option. The truth is, there are ways to improve joint pain without invasive procedures by harnessing our body's innate healing mechanisms in powerful ways.
The use of your own body’s tissue to help heal injury and disease is known as regenerative medicine. Allowing the body to heal itself can take a long time, and surgery is not always the best option. Non-surgical therapies like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and adult stem cell injections harness the body’s healing potential through natural processes that help repair joints without surgery. These cutting-edge technologies stimulate the body in order to accelerate the healing process. Depending on age, health, and the severity of your condition, we can offer you various non-operative treatments to get you back to being active. These therapies are performed as a same-day, office-based procedure with minimal downtime.
What are the benefits of regenerative medicine?
Regenerative therapy offers the following benefits:
Increased healing potential
Quicker recovery time
Decreased time away from sports or daily activities
While conditions like bone-on-bone arthritis have no “cure”, there are ways to improve pain and function tremendously through these procedures. With years of experience and expertise in this field, our providers enjoy a high success rate in healing bone, muscle, joint, soft tissue, and nerve injuries with regenerative procedures.

Platelet activation plays a key role in the process of wound and soft tissue healing. The use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), a portion of the patient’s own blood having a platelet concentration above baseline, to promote healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints, can be applied to various musculoskeletal problems.
Adult stem cell therapy is a minimally-invasive approach to treating the structural and systemic aspects of joint pain. The basic building blocks of human tissue, our body uses stem cells to repair, rebuild, and rejuvenate tissues all over the body throughout our entire lives. In the case of osteoarthritis, we retarget the cells to the areas within the joints that need help creating new cartilage cells.
