Non - Surgical Treatments

There are non-surgical treatments for such injuries as tendonitis / plantar fasciitis / and joint pathologies that can be done as an alternative to surgery and have minimal to no negative complications as compared to surgery. These can also be used in conjunction with surgery.

Platelet Rich Plasma: This is a derivative of your own blood where we take blood in the office and spin off the red blood cells and the left over plasma has a high concentration of growth factors that stimulate the healing cascade in tissue. This puts an abundance of these growth factors around the injured soft tissue and joints ( more than would get there through natural circulation ) .

Stem Cell injection: This is an injection of embryonic stem cells that can regenerate injured tissue

Prolotherapy: this is using injections of a mild irritant to induce the body to have a mild acute inflamatory response which will bring growth factors to the area and simulate the healing cascade in the tissue.

Located in Bee Cave, 15 minutes from downtown Austin.
