About Foot and Ankle Surgery Alternatives

Have you been told that steroid injections or invasive surgery are your only options to treat your foot or ankle pain? Our interventional orthopedic specialists at Ospina Medical can provide a non-surgical alternative that uses your own cells to repair the damage without invasive surgery.

Surgical treatment options for common foot and ankle injuries include interventions such as ankle arthroscopy to clean up damaged cartilage, fusion of ankle bones where cartilage has been lost, and tendon grafts screwed in place to strengthen loose connections between bones. These surgeries also typically involve a prolonged post surgical recovery with a lengthy rehab period to restore strength and mobility.

Even worse, many patients experience less than optimal results from these irreversible surgeries because their biomechanics are permanently altered. This alteration subsequently causes knee, hip, and back pain as a result of additional and unintended strain. This pain occurs because the body requires millimeter precision to maintain proper biodynamics and surgery, even if performed well, can alter these subtle alignments and lead to pain in other areas of the body. We often see one orthopedic procedure lead to another because of the ripple effect that can occur when any part of this chain is out of balance.

Treatments for Foot and Ankle Surgery Alternatives

At Ospina Medical, we utilize the Regenexx regenerative medicine lab platform to help avoid unnecessary surgery and heal damaged tissue using your body’s own healing cells. Using precise ultrasound and/or x-ray imaging guidance we are able to carefully place platelet-rich plasma (PRP), platelet lysate (PL) and/or bone marrow concentrate containing stem cells into specific areas of damaged tendons, ligaments, and joints. When injected correctly, these cells then work at the site of your injury to promote growth of new, healthy tissue.

By utilizing the Regenexx platform, our providers are able to treat foot and ankle pain due to common injuries including foot and ankle osteoarthritis, tendon and ligament tears or laxity, and other degenerative conditions related to the foot and ankle. Regenexx treatments are the world’s most advanced regenerative medicine therapies for treating foot and ankle conditions. Before you consider ankle surgery, fusion, or replacement, consider the world’s leading platelet-rich plasma (PRP), platelet lysate (PL), and bone marrow concentrate containing stem cell procedures. Regenexx patients are typically encouraged to walk the same day and most patients experience little to no down time, little to no need for opioid pain medications, and minimal to no time off work.
