Platelet rich plasma (PRP) and stem cell products are available as adjunct treatment options for chronic musculoskeletal diseases. These products can prolong and sometimes prevent more invasive treatments like surgery. They can be injected in the shoulder, elbow, wrist, fingers, knees, ankles, for tennis elbow, and around other inflamed tendons.
Shoulder arthritis can be debilitating. New techniques in shoulder replacement involves the use of a computer system to aid in the accurate placement of the shoulder components during the surgery.
Phantom pain, neuromas and residual limb pain are often chronic problems after losing a limb. Nerve injuries can result from trauma and after surgical procedures. Targeted muscle reinnervation (TMR) and nerve transfers are novel techniques that can be used to help prevent and treat these conditions.
Many people suffer with migraines and chronic headaches as well as jaw pain, temporomandibular disorders (TMD/TMJ), and teeth grinding (Bruxism). Botulinum toxin products such as Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin can be used to treat these disorders.
Neurotoxins (e.g., Botox, Dysport, Xeomin) and fillers (e.g., hyaluronic acid) are available cosmetic injectables for facial rejuvenation and anti-aging. These are less invasive treatment options to improve contour and reduce wrinkles in the forehead, around the eyes and mouth, reduce facial lines and folds, slim the jawline, and lift sagging skin.
