The Regenerative Orthopedic Medicine Clinic offers world class stem cell and platelet procedures to help you get back to the pain free way of life you are used to. If you have a tendon or ligament injury, muscle injury, joint damage, nerve pain, or back pain, you may be a candidate. If you are not getting the results you need from your current treatment plan and you want to avoid surgery if at all possible, then you owe it to yourself or your family to investigate stem cell therapy and platelet rich plasma procedures.
Regardless of age, stem cell and platelet injection procedures can be an effective method of stopping your pain from a damaged or injured joint or preventing the increase of common arthritis pain. Don't let joint pain take over your life. A sufficient number of stem cells can be isolated from anyone and these stem cells can become cartilage when injected into an arthritic joint. This allows the treatment and potential healing of many painful arthritic joints with a simple in-office, painless procedure. Initial improvements in pain and mobility are seen within few weeks of treatment and continue to gradually improve as the healing process continues.
Stem cells have the capability to heal or replace damaged tissues and cells in the body. They accomplish this by transforming into other cell types, such as bones, cartilage, muscles and tendons.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a non-operative procedure, where platelets from the patient’s blood are injected into cartilage and tendons to reduce pain and aid in the healing of common injuries.
Healthy knees are essential to everyday activities and sports. Common knee treatment options are arthroscopic knee surgery or total joint replacement, both of which require months of rehab. Knee injections could get you back to doing what you love right away.
Hip injuries can lead to long term pain management or traumatic surgery options. Stem cell therapy in the hip has the potential to both solve your hip pain and allow you to get back to your regular life much quicker than the surgery alternatives.
Injuries are very common in the shoulder due to how movable the joint is. The complexity of the joint makes surgery difficult and strength recovery can be a long road. Non-invasive injection procedures can alleviate pain with little to no down time.
Injuries in the elbow are commonly caused by a well known condition called tennis elbow. Treating this inflamed tissue with surgery can result in loss of strength in the forearm or a decreased range of motion. Injection procedures have proven to be very effective in the elbow joint.
"I went to see Dr Hughes at his clinic for my arthritis pain in my knees. I had been told I needed a total knee replacement by my previous doctor but I did not want that done because my neighbor just had surgery on his knee and he got an infection. I was afraid that if I had surgery it would be hard to return to skiing and an active lifestyle which I enjoy with my children. I had the stem cell procedure performed by Dr Hughes in his office, it was pain free even with the bone marrow draw and shot in my knees. I have been amazed how the pain I felt everyday in my knees is now gone. There is no doubt that this was worth it and now I am so excited for the new ski season. Thank you Dr Hughes for giving me a ski season I did not think was possible."
