Orthobiologic injections allow us to help the body repair areas of musculoskeletal degeneration and injury without the use of (and associated cell damage from) corticosteroids, with the goal of regaining function, decreasing pain, and avoiding surgery. I take the time to let my patients tell me their whole story, including their goals and challenges, and perform a thorough musculoskeletal exam. I take a whole-body, holistic approach to my patients, and work with my patients to get them “back into their game”. At Interventional Orthopedic Solutions – Rochester, we strive to be partners with our patients on the road to recovery, better health, and higher function.
