At The Hand & Upper Extremity Center of Georgia, we are dedicated to offering the latest and most advanced treatments and procedures. That’s why we offer several therapies in the field of orthobiologics as a nonsurgical treatment option for soft-tissue injuries and chronic conditions.
Orthobiologics are naturally-occurring substances that are used to help injuries heal more quickly. These treatments often use concentrated plasma, bone marrow aspirate, or other healing and growth factors to stimulate the body’s natural healing process in certain orthopedic conditions.
Orthobiologic therapies we offer include:
- Stem cell therapy: Orthobiologic procedures utilizing cells from bone marrow or adipose tissue to promote natural healing
- Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy: An orthobiologic procedure that uses growth factors from the patient's own blood components to repair and regenerate tissue
Performed by fellowship-trained, board-certified surgeons Gary M. Lourie, M.D., and Allan E. Peljovich, M.D., M.P.H., orthobiologic therapy at The Hand & Upper Extremity Center of Georgia offers you a nonsurgical treatment option and healing aid that can help you recover faster and get you back to your active lifestyle without surgery.
