Evolving treatment options in orthopedics include ortho-biologic stem cell therapy and PRP treatment (platelet-rich plasma). Our goals in using these therapies include demystifying the process, educating patients so they understand their options, discussing where these options fit in their treatment plan and the benefits/limitations of these treatments. This is a rapidly emerging area within orthopedics and refers to using “biologic” options to treat orthopedic injuries. Biologic treatment of orthopedic injuries has the potential to harness the body’s ability to heal itself, as well as adding new options to our treatment armamentarium. Ortho-biologics can be used as standalone nonoperative therapies or to complement and support surgical repairs.
