Regenerative & Alternative Medicine

Non-surgical treatment options for hand, foot, knee, joint and tendon injuries


Benefits of regenerative and non-surgical remedies

The goal of surgery alternatives is to harness the body’s natural ability to heal to reduce pain and improve mobility. For patients who are strong candidates for non-surgical options, these procedures are less invasive and recovery time is faster when compared with most surgical treatments.

Initial improvements in pain and mobility are seen within few weeks of treatment, and continue to gradually improve as the healing process continues.

Alternative treatment options

PRP Injections

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections use platelets from the patient’s blood and injecting them into cartilage and tendons to reduce pain and aid healing of common injuries.
