Have you seen an orthopedic surgeon and been told the only option for your condition is surgery? If so, you should consider getting a second opinion from a physician who specializes in sports and regenerative medicine. The truth is that most surgeries, like meniscus and labrum surgeries, can be avoided and many surgeries have no benefit and can potentially worsen your problems.
Traditionally, over 90% of orthopedic conditions do not require surgery. With advancements in technology and the emergence of regenerative procedures, like PRP and stem cells, that percent is much higher today. Even when a procedure is needed, with the use of ultrasound it can be performed with a much smaller incision, which has a much quicker recovery and can be performed in the comfort of the office and not in an operating room. These procedures can also be performed with only local anesthesia, so you do not have to go to sleep, and don’t require any stitches.
Regenerative therapies like PRP and stem cell therapy can be used for many chronic conditions that cause pain, such as osteoarthritis, tendon and ligament injuries and tears, partial muscle tears, chronic back and neck pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and many other conditions. Regenerative therapies use your own body to help areas of chronic pain heal. They are minimally invasive and require little recovery. In some cases they can actually repair the tissue and in other cases they clear out all of the chronic inflammation, which is causing your pain, allowing you to function pain free without surgery and the months of recovery involved.
In addition to injuries, advancements in technology and regenerative therapies can also be used to avoid surgery in aesthetics. We can now remove fat, tighten skin, remove cellulite, reduce wrinkles, remove hair, spider veins, dark spots, grow hair and even build muscle without big surgeries that can cost tens of thousands of dollars and take months to recover from.
