Orthopedics is a branch of medicine that focuses on your muscles, bones, joints, and tendons. If you need relief for joint pain, bone fractures, soft tissue injuries, and other musculoskeletal issues, you’ll likely work with an orthopedist.
Interventional orthopedics (IO) refers to an advanced treatment path that only a small fraction of providers have the skills and tools to offer. Let’s explore what interventional orthopedics is and how you could benefit from it moving forward.
Interventional Orthopedics Provides Targeted Pain Relief with Laser-Like Accuracy
Interventional orthopedics uses precise imaging to deliver stem cells, platelets, and other healing properties directly to the source of discomfort. Instead of blindly injecting in a certain area hoping to relieve pain, interventional orthopedics relies on ultrasound or X-ray technology to pinpoint where the treatment needs to go.
Interventional orthopedics is a groundbreaking solution for a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, but it is not right for everyone. Your doctor will need to evaluate your symptoms, health history, and overall goals to determine if you are a good candidate for IO and if it is the right path for you. The experts here at Michigan Center For Regenerative Medicine would be happy to discuss your options and create a personalized treatment plan.
How Interventional Orthopedics Compares to Other Regenerative Medicine Techniques
Your body is equipped with tons of healing properties. Regenerative medicine utilizes those naturally-available healing properties to repair broken bones, damaged tissues, arthritis, worn joints, and more.
Interventional orthopedics takes this concept one step further by delivering the healing properties precisely where they need to be. Think of the difference between walking through your house in the dark at night vs. walking through in broad daylight. You may be able to navigate the halls in the dark because you’re familiar with the house, but you’ll get where you need to go much more easily with the light on. The imaging used in IO offers that “light” to ensure your treatment gets where it’s needed most.
