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
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.
Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell therapy is a minimally invasive procedure injecting a person’s own stem cells into damaged tissue to initiate healthy cell growth, improve function and decrease pain.
The Tenex procedure is a proprietary method of treating chronic tendon pain by locating and removing scar tissue that causes pain when the tendon is overused or as a result of an active lifestyle.
Needle aponeurotomy (NA)
Corrects Dupuytrens contracture of the fingers using a a small needle and without stitches. Return to full use in a few days.
Enzymes injected into Dupuytrens soften and breaks cords, usually with immediate correction. Faster recovery and no stitches compared with surgery.
