Hip and knee replacements are surgical procedures in which parts of an arthritic or damaged joint is removed and replaced with a metal, plastic or ceramic device called a prosthesis. The prosthesis is designed to replicate the movement of a normal, healthy joint.
Anterior approach hip replacement surgery is performed through a smaller surgical incision, which is in the front of the hip rather than the side or back like a traditional hip replacement. The advantages include less muscle trauma, faster and easier recovery, less pain, shorter hospital stays and a decreased chance of hip dislocations.
Regenerative medicine is the process of replacing or regenerating tissue that may be permanently damaged to restore function. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy and Stem Cell Therapy are two types of regenerative medicine.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy injects a concentration of a patient’s own platelets to help promote faster healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints, and some milder forms of arthritis.
Stem Cell Therapy is the use of your body’s own stem cells to help speed repair for bone, muscle, joint, soft tissue and nerve injuries. This regenerative, non-surgical treatment can be effective for patients who haven’t experienced adequate relief with more conventional treatments.
