Non-Surgical Repair of Ligaments and Tendons
Are you looking for a non-surgical treatment option for your joint injury?
Joint repair using PRP is an exciting and cutting edge therapy for the stimulation of tissue repair and the regeneration of weakened, torn, or damaged ligaments and tendons.
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) treatments are effective non-surgical options for joint injury repair. This non-surgical treatment is a great way for patients to avoid the pain, complications, and recovery time associated with joint surgery.
If you’ve been told by an orthopedic surgeon that you need surgery to repair your damaged joint, you may be facing a hospital visit, general anesthesia, risks of complications, weeks or months of limited ability on crutches or in a cast, and up to a year of recovery and physical therapy before the surgeon says things might be “normal” again.
Before you commit to a surgery that you may regret from the very first day, you should know that there IS an alternative to joint surgery that has none of those disadvantages.
Non-Surgical Repair by Peter A. Fields, MD, DC
My name is Dr. Peter A. Fields, and I am a leading expert in Regenerative Orthopedics and uniquely degreed as both an MD and a Doctor of Chiropractic. I’m here to tell you that in many cases, you do NOT need to have surgery to repair a severely damaged ligament, tendon, labrum, or meniscus and the pain that goes with it.
My treatments have helped thousands of people resume their normal lives without joint surgery, and there’s a very good chance that I can do the same for you.
I am a specialist in a natural, non-surgical method of assisting the body to heal injured tendons and ligaments called Regenerative Orthopedics. These treatments help your body to regenerate and repair the damage in your joint.
What is Regenerative Orthopedics?
Regenerative Orthopedics is a treatment that causes an increase in nutrient-rich blood cells in the affected area, causing your body to heal and strengthen injured or weakened ligaments, tendons or joints. Your own body does the work to grow healthy, strong and vibrant tissue. It’s incredibly effective.
As the tissue grows and strengthens, your joint begins to operate properly, and your pain (and the causes of your pain) dissipate. Many of my patients enjoy a permanent recovery from their symptoms and go back to living a normal life without joint pain.
That means you fix your joint problem and eliminate your pain with…
- NO hospital stay
- NO general anesthesia
- NO surgery
- NO surgical complications
- NO long recovery
Platelet Rich Plasma for Joint Repair
In certain joint injuries, we recommend PRP. PRP means “Platelet Rich Plasma”, and the therapy isolates the platelets from your own blood in a centrifuge, and then re-injects this “platelet rich plasma” — with 7 to 10 times more concentrated growth factors — where it’s needed. PRP is more effective in these severe situations and typically results in 80% to 85% reduction in joint pain and a similar increase in range of motion. And the results are permanent.
In addition to severe tendon and ligament tears, torn meniscus and torn labrum, PRP is also effective with torn achilles tendon, plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, and a long list of severe sports injuries in any joint.
