With ongoing breakthroughs in healthcare, particularly in orthopedics, we make it a priority in offering cutting-edge clinically studied treatments to our patients. Advances in biologic therapies, including PRP (Platelet-rich plasma) along with Bone Marrow Aspirate, have made these injections an effective alternative to cortisone injections for the treatment of many chronic and debilitating conditions. These include, but are not limited to, lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow), medial epicondylitis (golfer’s elbow), Patellar Tendonitis and Achilles tendonitis. Recent clinical studies have also demonstrated these therapies to have beneficial effects in osteoarthritis as well.
Dr. Neri’s familiarity and experience in surgical and non-surgical treatments of these conditions combined with his implementation of ultrasound-guided injections will help unlock the potential benefit of biologics. Dr. Neri’s goal is to help you feel your best, so don’t hesitate to call for an appointment or talk to him about it on your next visit.
