To Surgery Or Not To Surgery?
”There are surgical orthopedic specialists and non-surgical orthopedic specialists. If you go see a surgical specialist…they’re going to offer you surgery”.
-Dr. Booth from the video below
Consider A Spine and Joint Specialist Who Specializes in Helping You Avoid Surgery
How you treat your back or joint pain can have a big impact on your life, and one of the most important decisions is also one of the first: What kind of doctor should you see? If you have back pain, for example, it seems simple that you should see a spine specialist, but shouldn’t you first consider a spine specialist who specializes in helping you avoid surgery?
“With back surgery, an orthopedic doctor has to cut through tissue that is used to stabilize your spine.” Watch Dr. Booth’s short video for more on why you should first consider surgery-free orthopedic options.
Orthopedic surgeons are not trying to lead you astray, but rather to utilize their specialty to help you. Surgery is sometimes the best option. But, you may want to consider non-surgical orthopedic options, particularly if those options involve the most advanced regenerative procedures in the world.
5 Key Factors That Make Orthobiogen Better Than Surgery For Spine & Joint Pain
There are many uncertainties and complications with orthopedic surgery, and there’s typically a long recovery time. You may have kids, grandchildren or friends that depend on you, so it can be overwhelming to choose a solution for your pain.
Regenexx treatments utilize Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) or Bone Marrow Concentrate (BMC) containing your own live stem cells to kick-start your body’s healing process. These cells and tissues are extracted from your own body, concentrated, and re-injected into the site of the injury. This gets the healing elements precisely where they need to be.
In this short video see 5 factors that set Orthobiogen apart and make Oklahoma’s only Regenexx clinic the most trusted alternative to traditional orthopedic surgery:
Board Certified Doctors with Advanced Training
- Board Certified Doctors with Advanced Training
As regenerative medicine has gained popularity in the last 20 years, many clinics that claim to offer “stem-cell therapy” have popped up. These clinics often lack qualified staff, and may not even have a doctor present for your procedure. All Regenexx specialists are Board Certified Doctors and have received additional training in interventional and regenerative procedures. These specialists have performed over 140,000 procedures worldwide, across a wide range of spine and joint conditions.
- Use Your Own Blood and Tissue
The key to the effectiveness of Regenexx is that it utilizes your own body’s natural healing ability to speed up recovery. Regenexx treatments essentially move your own body’s blood and tissues that are responsible for healing, directly to the site of the injury. We never use blood and tissues gathered from external sources, as they are not sanctioned by the FDA as they have not been proven effective and because they have the potential to cause a bad reaction or additional complications.
- Our Lab Facilities
Orthobiogen’s lab facilities, like the labs in all Regenexx facilities, are state of the art, and are the only facilities of their kind. Orthobiogen utilizes its lab to prepare the concentrated platelets and bone marrow on site, so that the healing agents can be injected back into your body within 24-hours–an FDA requirement. By adhering to strict lab protocols we maintain a sterile environment and protect you and your health during the process.
- Advanced Imaging
Every Orthobiogen procedure is conducted using X-ray fluoroscopy and ultrasound. Fluoroscopy is a type of medical imaging that shows a continuous X-ray image on a monitor, much like an X-ray movie. This advanced imaging allows Orthobiogen’s doctors to be as precise as possible from the first consultation to the injection procedure itself.
- Condition-Specific Treatments Based On Experience
Regenexx maintains an active patient registry that tracks patients’ progress or side effects, post-procedure. This tracking allows the Doctors to see what has worked, and the best way to improve the procedures over time. There is now 2 decades of experience going into every procedure we perform. At Orthobiogen you will receive treatment that has worked for other patients with your specific condition. See our Patient Outcomes to see how other patients have benefited from a Regenexx procedure.
