Orthobiologic research

OrthoIndy doctors have been at the forefront of treatment with orthobiologics for orthopedic injuries and conditions?such as arthritic joints, broken bones, injured muscles, tendons or ligaments.?Orthobiologics?are natural tissue-derived products that orthopedic surgeons use that may help decrease pain and restore function and potentially avoid or delay major surgery, like joint replacement surgery.?The?orthobiologic?substances consist of cells, proteins, glycoproteins and complex carbohydrates that are naturally found in the body.?? 

The goal of the?orthobiologics?program at OrthoIndy is to provide cutting-edge treatment options with a sound scientific foundation.?When non-operative options have failed, our doctors?may prescribe platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections or tissue and cell?therapies. 

If you are considering orthobiologic therapies, please review research discussing the potential benefits of PRP and tissue and cell injections.
