At Beaver Valley Foot Clinic and our sister company Center for Joint Health, we strive to help all of our patients with effective, minimally invasive pain relief solutions for osteoarthritis. A second, related goal is to restore your lost function and mobility. We want our patients pain-free and able to enjoy the activities they love.
Hybrid treatments, like the Vampire procedure enhanced with stem cells, deliver facelift-like results. They aren’t designed to take the place of surgery, however, and it’s really not a contest. In fact, patients actively choose less-invasive procedures over “normal” surgical procedures every day. The wrinkle-relaxing “injectable facelift” medication Botox is a perfect example. Highly popular facial fillers like Juvederm are another.
Our approach is unique:
Being different can be a great thing—especially if what you’re doing isn’t working. We successfully help or cure some of the most chronic, frustrating, and treatment-resistant conditions seen by doctors of all types. This includes plantar fasciitis, knee osteoarthritis, rotator cuff injuries, and even stubborn low back pain.
We do this by taking a regenerative approach. This lets us address 2 core aspects of many common (and not-so-common) joint conditions.
The first is reversing tissue damage. All injuries involve some level of tissue damage. Especially when this damage is chronic or long-standing the body can’t heal itself properly. Our doctors can now encourage a more complete healing response, including tissue regeneration, using treatments like stem cell therapy.
The second is reversing ligamentous laxity. Ligaments are the tough bands of connective tissue hold our bones together to form joints. These ligaments become stretched in many chronic injuries, making the joint less stable. This can also occur during serious acute injuries when the ligaments are stretched suddenly under too much force. An example is a very severe ankle sprain. Treatments such as stem cell therapy can correct ligamentous laxity, tightening joints and adding stability.
