Is arthritis or a sports injury keeping you off the golf course or from exercising in the park like you used to? Are you a competitive athlete who wants to finish the season safely and painlessly? Are you looking to avoid orthopedic surgery or to bridge the pain until you can fit surgery into a busy schedule? With leading-edge orthobiologics, including Stem Cell Injection Therapies and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections, arthritis patients and athletes of all ages can get back to their active lifestyles quickly and safely.
Advanced Injection Therapy builds on your body’s own abilities to heal itself. Your doctor uses natural materials from your blood or bone marrow to alleviate pain and stimulate healing.
Regenerative medicine is an exciting alternative to steroid shots, joint replacements and other orthopedic surgeries. And because orthobiologics are made from natural substances from your own body, they have an excellent safety profile and side effects are not common.
Why Ochsner for Orthobiologics?
Orthobiologics is a relatively new breakthrough in natural healing. The first stem cell injections in Louisiana using the advanced Arthrex Angel system were done right here at Ochsner. Today we go beyond traditional orthopedics by offering the most advanced therapies available.
Patients who are not getting satisfactory results from their current treatment plan, athletes with sprains or strains who are trying to finish a season or anyone who would like to avoid surgery should consider orthobiologics. Advanced injection therapies are much safer than surgery, relatively pain free and can be incredibly effective. They have the potential to improve quality of life for so many people.
At Ochsner, we believe good medicine is collaborative. We work with referring primary care physicians, orthopedic surgeons, rheumatologists, sports medicine specialists and other team members to customize a treatment plan that’s right for you.
