Interventional Orthopedic

What is interventional orthopedics?

Interventional orthopedics is a specialized area of medicine that focuses on regenerative care with the use of stem cell and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapies using precise, image-guided technology. Regenerative care is a new area of medicine with significant potential, and the team at International Spine Pain & Performance Center are leading the way by using the most advanced methodologies for treatment.

What are stem cells?

Stem cells serve as your body’s raw material for creating new cells and tissue. They have the ability to transform themselves into any type of cell your body needs. For therapeutic purposes, these stem cells can be isolated from your body and injected into diseased or damaged tissue to accelerate the healing process and generate new, healthy bone, cartilage, muscles, tendons, nerves, and blood vessels.

What is platelet-rich plasma?

PRP is a blood product rich in growth factors, secretory proteins, and concentrated platelets that support tissue healing and repair. The team at International Spine Pain & Performance Center create PRP from a sample of your own blood, so it’s safe and effective for healing and health.

What is infusion therapy?

The team at International Spine Pain & Performance Center also offer intravenous (IV) infusion therapy to treat a wide range of pain conditions.
