For patients in Tampa, FL, who require knee replacement, alternatives are available that may postpone or even preclude the need for a highly invasive surgical procedure – along with the risks, potential complications, and lengthy rehabilitation that typically go along with it. Some of the conditions that can be treated with regenerative medicine include:
- Meniscus tears
- ACL tears
- Other knee joint conditions
The primary goal of conservative therapy is to reduce pain, stiffness, and swelling to prevent the loss of mobility and function. In some cases, a customized regimen of nonsurgical treatment options, such as pain medications, anti-inflammatories, and cortisone injections, supplemented by knee replacement alternatives that incorporate regenerative and reparative techniques, can be highly effective.
