Dr. Patel offers the most comprehensive approach to non-surgical care of the foot and ankle, including the most advanced stem cell and PRP platelet procedures.
Stem cell and blood platelet procedures offer a non-surgical treatment option for many patients who are considering elective surgeries to resolve their foot and ankle pain. Regenerative medicine may help heal and alleviate problems with a same-day injection procedure by amplifying the concentration of a person’s own stem cells in the problem area, improving the body’s ability to heal itself naturally.
When the ligaments that hold the bones of the ankle joint together are partially torn or stretched, as in the case of a bad sprain or repeated minor sprains, they can become painful, loose, and weak. This changes how you walk, putting painful stress on other joints of the foot, as well as making it more likely that you will sprain the ankle again. This leads to a cycle of chronic pain and instability.
Ankle sprains and injuries that are not too severe, may be resolved with super concentrated PRP (platelet rich plasma) procedures. These procedures are intended to help heal damaged tissues and tighten lax ligaments due to sprain. For more substantial injuries on tears, our stem cell protocol may be recommended.
By combining his extensive experience, Dr. Patel has created a multi-faceted approach to address all components of both the foot and ankle. A traditional approach often involves injecting cortisone at the pain generator, but therefore only treats the effect and not the cause. We use a combination of prescribed exercise, manual therapy, and a patient’s own orthobiologic solutions such as stem cells & PRP in precise image-guided injections.
