The announcement details a range of benefits for patients suffering from common sports injuries such as muscle tears, as well as chronic conditions such as lower back pain, herniated discs, and cervical spine issues. Interventional Orthopedics of Washington offers industry-leading diagnostics and procedural precision via a suite of cutting-edge x-ray and ultrasound technology.
Interventional orthopedics is a relatively new medical specialty that offers greater accuracy in the injection of biologics such as platelet rich plasma, also called PRP, and bone marrow concentrate containing stem cells to facilitate healing in tendons, muscles, ligaments, bones, and joints. The majority of doctors and surgeons offering these regenerative injections are only able to perform very simple intra-articular procedures in the same manner as they would a cortisone injection. This is called a blind injection, meaning the physician is unable to see inside of the joint while injecting it. However, regenerative therapies such as PRP cannot be effective if administered in the same simplistic manner, and a lack of visual guidance in administering the injections means that the correct placement of the cells is an educated guess at best.
Interventional Orthopedics of Washington harnesses the technological precision of advanced ultrasound and x-ray during any cell or platelet re implantation, ensuring that injections are administered as accurately as possible among the delicate weave of tendons, ligaments, bones, and fibrocartilage at an injury site.
In addition to diagnosing and treating chronic spine conditions, Dr. Silva offers advanced and highly specialized non-surgical treatment of knee injuries including ACL and meniscus tears, ligament laxity, and osteoarthritis. In addition to advising about more traditional approaches such as physical therapy and bracing, the clinic provides an array cutting-edge regenerative medicine treatments that work to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes.
