Procedures for Foot & Ankle Conditions.

Regenerative orthopedic procedures are non-surgical injection-based procedures for people suffering from foot and ankle injuries, arthritis, or other conditions that cause pain. These procedures utilize concentrated repair cells that are obtained from your own bone marrow or blood to promote your body’s own natural ability to heal.

Current surgical treatment options for common ankle injuries and arthritis, include ankle arthroscopy to “clean up” damaged cartilage, fusion of ankle bones where cartilage has been lost, and tendon grafts screwed in place to strengthen loose connections between bones. All are painful and are often not be effective in the long run. These surgeries typically involve a painful post-surgical recovery with a lengthy rehab period to restore strength and mobility to the ankle. Our procedures may help reduce pain and improve function for those with foot or ankle pain due to injury or arthritis eliminating the need for these invasive surgeries.

Commonly Treated Ankle & Foot Conditions

  • Arthritis
  • Ankle Instability
  • Peroneal tendon tear or split
  • Ankle ligament sprain or tear
  • Sub-talar arthritis or instability
  • Tarsal tunnel syndrome
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Bunions

This is not a complete list, so please contact us if you have questions about whether you or your condition can be treated with these non-surgical procedures.

Considering Ankle Surgery, Fusion or Replacement?

As an alternative to surgery and the long recuperative period involved, tears to Foot and Ankle tendons and ligaments and Ankle Arthritis can often be treated with the healing agents from your own body, promoting your body’s ability to do its natural job of healing.

Regenerative Orthopedic Procedures may help alleviate pain and improve function with a non-surgical image-guided injection procedure. Patients are often encouraged to walk the same day, and most experience little downtime from the procedure.

 

Ankle Ligament Tears, Sprains and Instability

When the ligaments that hold the bones of the ankle joint together are partially torn or stretched, as in the case of a bad sprain or repeated minor sprains, they can become painful, loose, and weak. This changes how you walk, putting painful stress on other joints of the foot, as well as making it more likely that you will sprain the ankle again. This leads to a cycle of chronic pain and instability.

How Regenerative Procedures Work

Bone Marrow Stem Cell Concentrate Procedures 

Bone Marrow Concentrate contains your own stem cells. These reparative cells, inherent to our bodies, reside in various tissues, primed to initiate repair when damage occurs. However, as we age or sustain significant injuries, our capacity to recruit these cells diminishes, hindering full restoration. The bone marrow concentrate procedure addresses this issue by extracting bone marrow from the dense cell population in the back of the hip, concentrating them, and precisely administering them into the injured area with advanced imaging guidance. The objective is to alleviate pain and enhance functionality by harnessing the body's innate healing capabilities. Our protocol for Bone Marrow Stem Cell Concentrate can effectively treat a broad spectrum of orthopedic conditions. Your Interventional Orthopedics CT physician will assess your condition and imaging to determine whether bone marrow stem cell concentrate or platelet-based therapy is optimal for your orthopedic needs.

Platelet Rich Plasma Procedures

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) procedures involve utilizing healing growth factors derived from your own blood to enhance your body’s innate repair mechanisms. This treatment has gained prominence, particularly among professional athletes, for its effectiveness in addressing joint, tendon, ligament, and muscle injuries. PRP injections stimulate the repair cells within the targeted area, intensifying their natural healing capabilities. Similar to other Interventional Orthopedics CT procedures, PRP procedures are conducted under advanced imaging guidance to ensure precise placement of cells in the intended location. Platelet procedures, or PRP, are frequently employed for soft tissue injuries, mild arthritis, spine conditions, and nerve-related issues.
