Advanced Regenerative Orthopedics

Raleigh Orthopaedic is happy to offer natural non-surgical healing therapy for orthopaedic conditions. Orthopedic injuries and arthritis can cause pain and disability. We want to get you back to doing what you need to do on a daily basis, whether it’s work, sports, or just getting around town!

Allowing the body to heal itself can take a long time, and surgery is not always the best option. Regenerative Orthopedics uses cutting-edge technology to stimulate and accelerate the healing process. Depending on age, health, and the severity of your condition, we can offer you stem cell therapy, platelet-rich plasma therapy, and various other non-operative treatments available to get you back to being active.

Our physicians are specially trained in advanced regenerative orthopedics. People know these therapies as PRP (platelet rich plasma) and stem cell therapy.  Additionally, they are trained in ultrasound guided injections.

Benefits of Regenerative Orthopedics include:

  • Long-term joint pain relief
  • Speedier recovery time
  • Reduced time away from athletic or daily activities
  • Improved function
  • Diminished pain
  • Improved healing potential

Common Areas of Treatment:

  • Tendon or Ligament injury (tear, sprain)
  • Tendonitis
  • Arthritis
  • Muscle Strains
  • Articular Cartilage Injury

These therapies are performed as a same day, office-based procedure with minimal downtime. Although success may ultimately depend on the site and severity of the injury, and there is no “cure” for arthritis, we can often improve pain and function tremendously for years.

Call now to schedule your consultation, and see if you may benefit from one of these advanced therapies or review your non-operative options! The consultation is covered by insurance.
