Joint Replacement Alternatives Tampa FLJoint replacement alternatives are worth exploring if you are considering surgery to treat a degenerative joint condition. At Tampa Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Center, we provide a full range of progressive, nonsurgical treatments, including regenerative medicine techniques, which are sometimes effective enough to delay the need for aggressive surgical intervention. Patients from Tampa, Clearwater, St. Petersburg, and other Florida areas are welcome to consult with our Board-certified surgeons and physicians to learn about all of the options available to them.

Unlike other conservative treatments that are designed to manage symptoms by providing short-term relief, the regenerative joint replacement alternatives available at Tampa Orthopaedic in Tampa, FL, are outpatient procedures that can sometimes trigger the body’s natural repair mechanisms to facilitate the healing of damaged tissue. For example, options like stem cell treatments and platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy might be suitable for certain individuals who are facing the painful effects of:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Knee, hip, or shoulder pain
  • Meniscal tears
  • ACL strains
  • Patellar tendonitis
  • Labral tears
  • Rotator cuff tendonitis
  • Rotator cuff impingement
  • Tennis elbow
  • Achilles tendonitis

Stem cell treatments and PRP therapy are innovative joint replacement alternatives which, in certain cases, can capitalize on the body’s ability to heal itself. The most appropriate treatment technique for each patient is best determined during a personal consultation with a physician.
