REGENERATIVE MEDICINE

Discover the Future of Healing With Orthopedic Regenerative Medicine

UNC Cary Orthopaedics is passionate about providing the highest level of care with the most up-to-date information and technology. We recognize that the world of regenerative medicine and orthopedic biologics is rapidly expanding. Our goal is to ensure these services are available to our patients.

What is Regenerative Medicine?

Regenerative medicine is more than just orthopedic injections. It is the cutting-edge field that harnesses the body’s innate ability to heal. By stimulating the body’s own healing processes, we can treat a wide range of orthopedic conditions. From sports injuries to degenerative diseases, regenerative injections work without invasive surgery or long recovery times.

At Cary Orthopaedics, we deliver personalized regenerative medicine treatment customized for each patient’s unique condition. Our team has studied these modalities and utilizes state-of-the-art techniques. We offer the latest advancements in this science to provide safe, effective and long-lasting results.

Regenerative medical injections are a safe and conservative option to treat patients without surgery, boosting the body's natural healing process and eliminating pain caused by inflammation.

Benefits of Regenerative Medicine

  • Non-invasive: Say goodbye to surgery and hello to natural healing.
  • Faster recovery: Regenerative ortho injections often result in shorter recovery times than traditional methods.
  • Long-term relief: Regenerative medicine can offer lasting relief and improved quality of life by addressing the root cause of your condition.
  • Minimal side effects: Unlike medications or surgery, regenerative treatments typically have minimal side effects, allowing you to return to doing what you love sooner.

Regenerative Modalities

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy

PRP therapy harnesses the healing power of the patient’s own blood to promote tissue repair and regeneration. Osteoarthritis, tendonitis, back and spine conditions, nerve injuries, and ligament and muscle injuries can be treated with PRP.

Stem cell therapy

Stem cell therapy is at the forefront of non-surgical orthopedic regenerative medicine. Stem cell injections use a patient’s own stem cells to treat osteoarthritis and soft tissue injuries.

Stem cells are drawn from a patient’s own bone marrow in the hip bone or pelvis. These cells help rebuild soft tissue, bone and cartilage to increase the rate of healing and improve overall joint function.

Traditional Orthopedic Injections

In addition to Cary Orthopaedics’ regenerative medicine solutions, we also offer traditional non-surgical orthopedic injections, including:

Viscosupplementation

Viscosupplementation injections are lubricating gels containing hyaluronic acid. The gel is injected directly into the joint to decrease friction during movement. The shots help reduce pain associated with osteoarthritis and improve the range of motion in the joint.

Anti-inflammatory injections

Cortisone or steroid injections work to relieve pain and inflammation in a joint or tendon. This non-surgical orthopaedic treatment provides quick pain relief for inflammation in areas like the wrist, spine, shoulder, knee, hip, elbow or ankle.

Why Choose Cary Orthopaedics?

Our team of board-certified orthopaedic specialists has expertise in diagnosing orthopaedic injuries and the understanding and knowledge to apply these modalities appropriately. For most injections, we utilize ultrasound for needle placement to ensure the medicine reaches the desired location precisely.

Your health and well-being are our top priorities. We work closely with each patient to develop a personalized treatment plan that fits their needs and lifestyle. From diagnosis to treatment and follow-up care, we provide comprehensive services to ensure a seamless journey to recovery.
