Orthopedics 2.0 3rd Edition Kindle

Orthopedics 2.0 3rd Edition Kindle!

Our practice is committed to something different than most clinics offering stem cells for orthopedic problems. We’re focused on reworking orthopedic care through what we call, Interventional Orthopedics. This means a complete overhaul of how we understand, diagnose, and treat knee, back, shoulder, hip, and other problems. This also includes an emphasis on hyper-accurate cell placement under imaging guidance. To help our patients understand what we do and how we do it very differently than anyone else, I wrote a book many years back. The third edition of that book is now available on Kindle.

What is Orthopedics 2.0? First, I can tell you what it’s not. It doesn’t involve a patient getting magic stem cell injections somewhere inside a joint because the area hurts. It’s a complete overhaul of how we look at the musculoskeletal system. This takes the simplistic view of surgery from “cut out the painful tissue” and adds in layers of complexity to our understanding using a simple mantra-Stability, Articulation, Symmetry, and Neuromuscular (SANS).

The SANS approach starts with whether your joint is stable. This is different than the standpoint of a surgeon (i.e a ligament is busted) by also considering the much more common situation where small amounts of laxity in a joint can fry that structure over time. Next comes the joint itself (articulation). Rather than cutting out tissue (which research shows doesn’t help), the goal is to heal or help the cartilage, ligament, meniscus, or labrum that you have. Then we consider symmetry. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize that if only your right knee has arthritis and it’s never really been injured, then your body isn’t symmetrically loading that joint. The last part of the system is neuromuscular, a part of the equation that’s virtually invisible to many surgeons. Bad nerves in your spine or muscles that don’t fire correctly will also eat up your joints.

The upshot? If you haven’t taken the time to read the third edition of Orthopedics 2.0, give it a whirl. All three editions of the book have been downloaded more than 30,000 times and I consistently hear from patients that they like how it makes them a partner in figuring out what’s wrong.

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

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

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
