Video Transcription

Currently at Summit Orthopedics, we’re offering two regenerative therapies. One is platelet-rich plasma therapy, and the other one is bone marrow aspirate concentrate therapy. There are other forms of regenerative medicine and regenerative treatments for orthopedic conditions that have been studied. But currently, we’re offering really the primary options that meet FDA guidelines for regenerative conditions. We offer spine regenerative treatments; we also offer peripheral regenerative treatments. We cover spine care in the sense that there are discal pathologies or disc problems that someone can have treated. You can have other problems in joints and ligaments that are support structures in the spine, if that’s your diagnosis. Osteoarthritis is a major component as well as peripheral applications. And what do I mean by that? Elbows, wrists, thumbs, small joints. But there are applications for muscle, bone, soft tissue. Everything from top to bottom is what we cover.
