A Better Option than Ankle or Foot Surgery
Painful post-surgical recovery, lengthy physical therapy and loss of function are just some of the main reasons why regenerative medicine is better than an invasive ankle or foot surgery to repair tissue damage. In fact here are three more:
- Regenerative Medicine uses your body’s own biologics; not hardware, or grafts
- Significantly shorter recovery time
- Return to use that is as natural as it has always been
If you suffer from osteoarthritis of the ankle, tears in the tendons and ligaments of the ankle, or planters fasciitis, you know pain. The reality is that if you are like many individuals suffering from chronic pain of the ankle or foot, you know that there are not a lot of optimal treatment options.
Regenerative Medicine Alternatives
Focused around promoting healing within, regenerative medicine offers patients a true alternative to invasive and often ineffective treatments. When it comes to treating the ligaments, tendons and joints of the foot and ankle, two regenerative medicine therapies have proven to provide relief.
- Autologous Stem Cell Therapy (using your own stem cells)
- Platelet Rich Plasma (concentration of the platelets in your own blood)
As both of these regenerative medicine procedures are extracted using your body’s own biologics, the risk of adverse side effects is almost non-existent. Lead by Dr. Lucy Hostetter, Seattle Regenerative Medicine Center can provide advanced regenerative medicine options to treat these injuries.
