I’ve written a number of books on how regenerative medicine, in the right highly trained hands, disrupts the world of orthopedic surgery. My newest book is now out, focused on how patients with shoulder pain can avoid invasive surgery. Let’s dig in…

Renee Calliet

While I was in medical school and residency, I was enamored with books by American Physical Medicine author Rene Calliet. These were meant both for physicians and patients and all hand-illustrated by Calliet to make the complex very simple. In some ways, I wanted to be Rene Calliet when I went into practice and writing this Orthopedics 2.0 series has been a realization of that dream.

When I finally became a physician in private practice I soon saw a problem. I needed a way to educate my patients about every conceivable topic using the then brand new “Internet”. How could I do that? At first, it was through blog posts that I could send via a link and an email. Then it was through books.

Orthopedics 2.0

I wrote Orthopedics 2.0 many years ago as a way to try to relay to patients that what we were seeing and doing in the clinic was very different and changing lives without orthopedic surgery. The goal was to have patients think twice before pulling the trigger on an often irreversible decision to have a huge surgical procedure. I also wanted to educate patients that the research supporting that they needed orthopedic surgery was pretty weak. Through the years Orthopedics 2.0 has had numerous revisions with the 4th edition now available which is the number 2 best seller on Amazon in orthopedics! Click below to get a copy:

My Speciality Ortho 2.0 Books

After writing Orthopedics 2.0 I began to realize that the book couldn’t really dive deep into any one body part and I had patients that wanted to learn more about their specific problem. Hence, that book got followed up with both a Knee and a Spine version, which can be downloaded below by clicking on the book cover:

       

Shoulder 2.0

This new book began on a long series of delayed flights. I decided it was time to tackle the shoulder so that my patients with rotator cuff tears, labral tears, arthritis, and other issues could get an understanding of how their shoulder works and should be treated using regenerative medicine to avoid invasive orthopedic surgery. Hence, Shoulder 2.0 was born! To download a copy of the book, please click on the cover below:

The upshot? I find that an educated patient becomes a partner in their recovery journey and not a passive passenger. So the patients that read and understand these books just tend to do better and understand more. So please read the ones that apply to you!

Regenerative procedures are commonly used to treat musculoskelatal trauma, overuse injuries, and degenerative issues, including failed surgeries.
Select Your Problem Area
Shoulder

Shoulder

Many Shoulder and Rotator Cuff injuries are good candidates for regenerative treatments. Before considering shoulder arthroscopy or shoulder replacement, consider an evaluation of your condition with a regenerative treatment specialist.

  • Rotator Cuff Tears and Tendinitis
  • Shoulder Instability
  • SLAP Tear / Labral Tears
  • Shoulder Arthritis
  • Other Degenerative Conditions & Overuse Injuries
Learn More
Cervical Spine

Spine

Many spine injuries and degenerative conditions are good candidates for regenerative treatments and there are a number of studies showing promising results in treating a wide range of spine problems. Spine surgery should be a last resort for anyone, due to the cascade of negative effects it can have on the areas surrounding the surgery. And epidural steroid injections are problematic due to their long-term negative impact on bone density.

  • Herniated, Bulging, Protruding Discs
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • SI Joint Syndrome
  • Sciatica
  • Pinched Nerves and General Back Pain
  • And more

Knee

Knees

Knees are the target of many common sports injuries. Sadly, they are also the target of a number of surgeries that research has frequently shown to be ineffective or minimally effective. Knee arthritis can also be a common cause for aging athletes to abandon the sports and activities they love. Regenerative procedures can be used to treat a wide range of knee injuries and conditions. They can even be used to reduce pain and delay knee replacement for more severe arthritis.

  • Knee Meniscus Tears
  • Knee ACL Tears
  • Knee Instability
  • Knee Osteoarthritis
  • Other Knee Ligaments / Tendons & Overuse Injuries
  • And more

Lower Spine

Spine

Many spine injuries and degenerative conditions are good candidates for regenerative treatments and there are a number of studies showing promising results in treating a wide range of spine problems. Spine surgery should be a last resort for anyone, due to the cascade of negative effects it can have on the areas surrounding the surgery. And epidural steroid injections are problematic due to their long-term negative impact on bone density.

Hand & Wrist

Hand & Wrist

Hand and wrist injuries and arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and conditions relating to overuse of the thumb, are good candidates for regenerative treatments. Before considering surgery, consider an evaluation of your condition with a regenerative treatment specialist.
  • Hand and Wrist Arthritis
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Trigger Finger
  • Thumb Arthritis (Basal Joint, CMC, Gamer’s Thumb, Texting Thumb)
  • Other conditions that cause pain

Elbow

Elbow

Most injuries of the elbow’s tendons and ligaments, as well as arthritis, can be treated non-surgically with regenerative procedures.

  • Golfer’s elbow & Tennis elbow
  • Arthritis
  • Ulnar collateral ligament wear (common in baseball pitchers)
  • And more

Hip

Hip

Hip injuries and degenerative conditions become more common with age. Do to the nature of the joint, it’s not quite as easy to injure as a knee, but it can take a beating and pain often develops over time. Whether a hip condition is acute or degenerative, regenerative procedures can help reduce pain and may help heal injured tissue, without the complications of invasive surgical hip procedures.

  • Labral Tear
  • Hip Arthritis
  • Hip Bursitis
  • Hip Sprain, Tendonitis or Inflammation
  • Hip Instability

Foot & Ankle

Foot & Ankle

Foot and ankle injuries are common in athletes. These injuries can often benefit from non-surgical regenerative treatments. Before considering surgery, consider an evaluation of your condition with a regenerative treatment specialist.
  • Ankle Arthritis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Ligament sprains or tears
  • Other conditions that cause pain
