Hip pain can be extremely difficult to deal with, especially when
it occurs on a daily basis. Conventionally, it requires
long-term pain control if the root cause of the problem is not
treated. Hip surgery for hip replacements and hip resurfacing
are often the only treatment options offered to the patient
dealing with debilitating hip pain. Hip surgeries are by nature
traumatic and require a lengthy rehabilitation period. Patients
often must deal with pain and discomfort for months while trying
to restore strength and mobility.
While many times surgery is the correct answer, at The Burress Center for Cellular and Regenerative Medicine, we encourage patients to explore other options. In some cases, patients may be able to recover from their issues quicker and with minimal discomfort and down time when they pursue regenerative medicine alternatives.
Cellular and Regenerative Medicine for Hips
Many of our procedures are nonsurgical or minimally invasive.
The treatment is usually carried out in minutes instead of hours
and recovery time can be in terms of days instead of months.
Achieving that same level of fast recovery time and healing is
difficult with surgery. In addition, patients undergoing
Orthobiologic treatments may be far less susceptible to
post-surgical risks such as blood clots, but ultimately, a
consultation will be needed to see if you are a good candidate.
Typical treatments might include low intensity shockwave therapy using sound waves to break up calcifications and stimulate fibroblast regrowth, platelet rich plasma lysate injections, which uses your blood’s own growth factors, adipose therapy which involves using your own fat to stimulate tissue repair, and ‘autologous’ (from your own body) bone marrow transplants which contain, among other growth factors, mesenchymal stem cells.
Are You A Candidate For Cellular Or Regenerative Procedures For Hip Issues?
In general, if you are suffering from any hip injury or hip pain, you may be an excellent candidate for regenerative medicine techniques. Get in touch with us today and we can schedule a free consultation to see if you may be able to benefit from our extensive training in this field. We at The Burress Center for Cellular and Regenerative Medicine are especially proud of our ability to provide precision placement of orthobiologic substances through the use of fluoroscopy and ultrasound. And if you are not a good candidate for our protocols, we will tell you. We will be happy to refer you to scientific articles supporting our approach.
