Orthobiologic Support for Orthopedic Specialists

Osteoarthritis & Joint Pain

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.

The state-of-the-art options Greyledge offers in regenerative orthopedics can enable your orthopedist to help you eliminate joint pain and take back control of your life. 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. For some patients, orthobiologics can offer alternatives to knee replacement surgery for osteoarthritis and other joint conditions. When applied by injection or post-operation, they can offer you a faster, more effective recovery than any other option available in medicine today*.

Whatever your needs are as a patient, we’ll support your orthopedic specialist in giving you the relief you deserve. Ready to eliminate your joint pain? Talk to your doctor about Greyledge today, or find a Greyledge-affiliated orthopedic physician near you.

Non-Surgical Treatments for Osteoarthritis 

Highly-Trained PRP Joint Injection Specialists

Greyledge’s capabilities include a number of cutting-edge regenerative preparations. One of the most popular preparations is known as platelet-rich plasma, or PRP. The process of creating PRP works like this:

  • Your orthopedist or their assisting Greyledge technician will draw whole blood from whichever joint is affected by osteoarthritis or another joint condition.
  • The blood we draw will be transported to a Greyledge lab, where it will be separated into 3 layers -- red blood cells, platelet-poor plasma, and a “Buffy Coat” made up of both platelets and white blood cells.
  • Our highly-specialized technicians will concentrate and ratio these elements to prepare a customized PRP product that provides the optimal treatment for your body and your specific condition.
  • Greyledge will deliver your PRP product to your physician to be reinjected into the affected joint.

PRP stimulates your body’s natural ability to reduce inflammation and help restore the tissues and cartilage surrounding your worn-down joint. PRP is useful for providing:

  • Osteoarthritis treatment involving:
    • Hip
    • Knee
    • Shoulder
    • Foot and Ankle
    • Wrist and Hand
    • Small joints (fingers and toes)

Minimally-Invasive Treatments for Osteoarthritis

Using Your Own Cells for Joint Pain

Bone marrow cellular concentrate (BMC) can help your orthopedic specialist offer a surgical or non-surgical method of treating osteoarthritis and other conditions of the joints. Here’s how Greyledge has optimized the preparation of BMC:

  • Your treating physician will extract blood from your own bone marrow using a special needle. This blood includes stem cells and many other cell types as well as platelets.
  • During this extraction process, we’ll also take a sample of progenitor cells from your marrow.
  • We’ll take this sample back to our lab, then concentrate the cells into a single preparation customized to your body and your particular condition.
  • The sample will then be reinjected into your affected joint.

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.
