Cutting Edge Therapies
Cellular Therapy or Orthobiologics is a branch of translational research in tissue engineering and molecular biology which deals with the process of replacing, engineering, or regenerating human cells, tissues, or organs to restore or establish normal function.
Cellular Therapy involves delivery of specific types of cells or cell products to damaged/diseased tissues or organs, where they ultimately restore tissue and organ function. This can be done through cell-based therapy or by using cell products.
Orthopedic injuries, as well as joint and tendon pain, can compromise mobility and hinder quality of life, whether you are active, aging, or an athlete.
Portneuf has the only certified cellular therapy doctor in Idaho and is invested in using the latest non-invasive technologies when medically appropriate. These innovative approaches offer:
- Better ways to heal orthopedic injuries
- Quicker recovery time without surgery
- Replacement tissue for joints, cartilage, and ligaments
While the specialty of sports medicine includes the prevention and treatment of injuries to athletes and physically active people, sports medicine professionals understand that athletes do not always wear uniforms and athletic injuries can happen anywhere, not just on athletic fields. injuries can range from a sprained ankle to a more significant injury such as a sports-related concussion.
No two sports-related injuries are alike. As an orthopedic team we are committed to partnering with our patients to develop a customized treatment and rehabilitation program for your specific sports injury.
We are primarily concerned with the investigation, preservation, and restoration by medical, surgical, and rehabilitative means to all structures of the musculoskeletal system affected by athletic activity. The same principles used to return an athlete to the field are also used to return workers back to work, restore function to non-athletes and allow for efficient return to the activities of daily living.
Common injuries which may necessitate sports medicine care include:
- Injuries and other conditions related to, arising from, or preventing participation in sports or other recreational activities
- Elbow injury
- Iliotibial (IT) band syndrome
- Knee injury
- Patella-femoral knee pain
- Plantar fasciitis
- Tennis elbow
- Throwing injury
- Torn ACL
- Shoulder injury
- Sports Hernia
- Sprained ankle
