Orthobiologics have become an important new tool in our ability to care for patients. These include treatment options both in the clinic and surgical setting. Examples of this include platelet-rich plasma injections that take your own blood separated by a centrifuge and allow re-injection of just the platelets back into your tendon or joint to create a healing response. Bone marrow derived stem cells as well as human amniotic cells are options for stem cell related treatments designed to stimulate your body’s pathways to heal, decrease ongoing age related damage pathways, and accelerate recovery. Surgical options include specialized graft and processes that stimulate healing without mechanical implants, and even processes to harvest and re-grow your own cartilage cells that can be re-implanted.
