Dr. Doute’ has been specially trained to offer injection therapy, such as PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), to treat osteoarthritis, chronic tendonitis, and meniscus problems. This is a potential way to AVOID SURGERY, which is important for many these days. These treatments use your own body tissue to repair old tissue/regenerate new tissue which can help healing and eliminate pain in joints and tissues all over the body.

PRP comes from blood drawn from your body.

Stem cells are drawn from the patients hip or adipose/fat tissue of the abdomen.

Examples of tissues which can be treated:

  • Shoulder joint, rotator cuff - tendonitis and tearing
  • Knee joint - joint arthritis and menicus problems
  • Tennis elbow,
  • Foot and ankle tendon problems
  • Achilles tendon
  • Hip bursa
  • Wrist tendons

Usually at your office visit, we can determine if you are a candidate.

PRP and stem cell injections are not covered by insurance, so cash payment rates would apply.

Stem cell-based therapeutic strategies for cartilage defects and osteoarthritis

ACI is the gold standard cell therapy for cartilage defect repair. MSCs are promising substitutes for chondrocytes in ACI-like procedures. Intra-articular MSC delivery for OA is safe but efficacy remains to be established. Extracellular vesicles could replace cells in therapy. Understanding endogenous repair mechanisms could lead to targeted therapies.

Novel therapeutic strategies for degenerative disc disease: Review of cell biology and intervertebral disc cell therapy

Intervertebral disc degeneration is a disease of the discs connecting adjoining vertebrae in which structural damage leads to loss of disc integrity. Degeneration of the disc can be a normal process of ageing, but can also be precipitated by other factors. Literature has made substantial progress in understanding the biological basis of intervertebral disc, which is reviewed here. Current medical and surgical management strategies have shortcomings that do not lend promise to be effective solutions in the coming years.
