This morning, Dr. Robert Dugas was featured on KLKN Channel 8 News to discuss orthobiologic procedures. Orthobiologics is a great alternative treatment to surgical intervention and is used to help the healing process in fractures and joints. These procedures are called “orthobiologics” the products are made from substances that are naturally found in your body – and when used in higher concentrations, they may help speed up the healing process. The substance is injected to leverage the immune system to augment the healing process that takes place naturally, whether due to injuries or degenerative diseases. Unlike cortisone injections which just temporarily treat the pain, orthobiologics help cells restore some of the joint or bone’s normal function, which helps lessen pain. This in turn helps you participate in the activities you desire.
