What are Ortho Biologics?
Ortho Biologics are natural substances such as cells, tissue, blood components and growth factors that are harnessed to aid in the treatment of orthopedic injuries or conditions. They may be used to replace lost tissue, stimulate regeneration and healing, reduce pain and inflammation and improve joint function.
Ortho Biologics are obtained from your own body. They are re-administered in an in-office procedure. They may be used as a stand-alone treatment or following orthopedic surgery to enhance results.
What Conditions are Treated by Ortho Biologics?
Ortho Biologics can be used to treat articular cartilage injuries, early osteoarthritis, ligament injuries or tendon injuries.
When are Ortho Biologics Recommended?
Ortho Biologics are recommended when rest, medications and physical therapy do not relieve symptoms and joint replacement surgery is not indicated. It may also be recommended following spine surgery.
Types of Ortho Biologics
The different types of Ortho Biologics include:
- Platelet rich plasma (PRP): PRP is obtained from your own blood after it has been processed to concentrate platelets and certain white blood cells that enhance healing and reduce inflammation. PRP may be injected directly into the damaged tissue during an outpatient procedure or following repair surgery.
- Bone marrow concentrate (BMC): BMC is obtained after processing bone marrow that is removed from your pelvic bone. BMC is rich in stem cells, which produce proteins and growth factors necessary for healing and reducing inflammation.
- Micro Adipose Grafts: Adipose tissue or fat cells have remarkable healing and regenerative properties. Micro adipose grafts are typically obtained from your waist, processed to remove impurities and inflammatory components, and then injected at the site of injury.
