Regenerative therapies are changing the way in which many orthopaedic injuries and conditions can now be treated. Staying ahead of the technology and advances in orthopaedics, many of OACM’s physicians are now offering regenerative therapies, which allow doctors to utilize a patient’s own cells to promote tissue and tendon healing, pain relief from acute/chronic conditions such as arthritis, tendinitis and tendon tears, and to improve function of joints without surgery.
