Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis and the leading cause of chronic disability in the United States.

Osteoarthritis Overview

Osteoarthritis comparison graphicOsteoarthritis, also known as degenerative joint disease (DJD), is a wear-and-tear condition of the joints involving articular cartilage and subchondral bone. Unfortunately, osteoarthritis is a progressive disorder, worsening year after year, often resulting in worsening of symptoms and ongoing gradual loss of joint cartilage.

Symptoms may include joint pain, tenderness, stiffness, and swelling. With osteoarthritis, there are currently no effective drugs to prevent osteoarthritis from occurring or from progressing. Most drugs and conventional treatments just seek to treat the symptoms of osteoarthritis, rather than address the root of the problem, which is ongoing degeneration of cartilage within joint tissues.

Benefits of Regenerative Medicine

The potential benefits of regenerative medicine in treating osteoarthritis is to promote natural healing of damaged joints, to slow or stop the degenerative condition from worsening, and most importantly to delay or avoid the need for joint replacement surgery. This natural healing is promoted through the use of autologous and/or allogeneic biologic agents such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP), lipoaspirate, growth factors & cytokines, and others.
