Avoid Orthopedic Surgery with Stem Cell, PRP and Lipogems® Injections
Patients may be able to avoid orthopedic surgery with stem cell, PRP and Lipogems® injections. These treatments include growth factors and regenerative cells from the patient that are injected into areas of injury or degeneration. The goal is to stimulate the body’s natural ability to heal damaged areas.
Orthobiologics and Regenerative Medicine
These injections fall under the category of orthobiologics or regenerative medicine which is a combination of biology and biochemistry used to regenerate bone and soft tissue. Your natural healing capacity is stimulated using growth factors and/or regenerative cells that come from your body and are used to treat various orthopedic conditions.
Dr. Goradia is a leader in orthobiologics. He has worked with physicians around the country to bring this technology to Richmond, VA and the mid-Atlantic region. He has been treating patients with PRP since 2010 and stem cell injections since 2013. Dr. Goradia was the first orthopedic physician and surgeon to perform Lipogems injections in Richmond.
