“Gone are the days where patients with hip and knee arthritis are sent away to wait until there arthritis is bad enough to need a joint replacement. This reactive approach to medicine is outdated and cruel. It has been my pleasure to have a hand in developing new biological treatments for arthritis and watch them progress from the laboratory bench to the bedside. Regenerative treatments such as platelet rich plasma injections have massively improved my patients pain, function and overall quality of life. The future of arthritis treatment is proactive. Biological and cellular treatments allow us to intervention early in the disease process by using the patient’s own biology to improve pain, reduce inflammation and repair their damaged joints.”
