Osteoarthritis -- the most common form of adult arthritis -- occurs when the cartilage between your bones begins to wear away, creating painful friction in the joints of the knees, shoulders, hips, and more. Along with other types of orthopedic joint conditions, the pain and loss of motion you may experience as a result of osteoarthritis can be debilitating. Historically, joint replacement surgery was the only option for progressive arthritis.
Cell therapies are being more commonly used throughout the world to treat arthritic conditions without surgery. These therapies can significantly reduce pain and swelling, preserving joint function as long as possible and in some cases, prevent joint replacement altogether, especially if the disease process is caught earlier.

Made using technology at the forefront of orthobiologic treatment, our PRP and BMC preparations allow your physician to tailor your therapy to your individual needs.

Your own stem cells are unique in the fact that they don’t just serve a single purpose -- they exist at a stage in which they can transform into any other type of cell. Equally as important, they are critical to coordinate the healing process necessary to restore the joint tissue compromised by your injury and rally other cells to do the same. This makes BMC extremely valuable in helping physicians offer non-surgical treatment for arthritis in the hips, shoulders, knees, and more.
