Personalized care plans
Have you heard terms like “stem cell injections,” “PRP,” or “prolotherapy”? If you have, then you already have an introduction to orthobiologic treatment! Kansas City Orthopedic Alliance and its orthobiologics providers are leaders in utilizing regenerative treatments to assist in healing acute injuries and helping patients avoid surgery.
KCOA is a trusted provider of orthobiologics in Kansas City—our team is well regarded in the region as experts on these advanced treatments. Because we are the most sub-specialized practice in the area, our orthobiologics team dedicates itself explicitly to growing and excelling in this field.
Advanced, non-surgical treatments
Orthobiologics procedures differentiate themselves by allowing patients to use their own healing potential, utilizing the body’s cells and growth factors to treat acute injuries and chronic pain. Our providers obtain these growth factors by sourcing platelet-rich plasma from a small amount of blood, or by acquiring stem cells from the patient’s own body.
All orthobiologic injections are performed under either ultrasound guidance or live x-ray (fluoroscopic) guidance for unequivocal accuracy.
For Any Condition. For Every Body.
What We Treat
How It Works
Our Orthobiologics Treatment Process
Kansas City Orthopedic Alliance offers the most advanced orthobiologics options in the Midwest. The KCOA orthobiologics program consistently prevents unnecessary surgeries and eliminates pain through natural, safe, and effective treatments in the Kansas City area.
When you visit one of our orthobiologics physicians, you will undergo a detailed evaluation of your complaint and corresponding physical examination. Sometimes, we may need further testing to determine the correct diagnosis.
The process begins with an initial appointment, the length of which varies based on your condition. More complex issues will require more time with your physician, especially if you have multiple musculoskeletal conditions.
Our patient-centric approach means we conduct individualized tests and studies based on your physical examination. Tests may include:
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
- Digital X-Ray
- Electromyograms (EMG) & Nerve Conduction Studies
- And Other Medical Technologies
Recovery & Outcomes
In many cases, PRP and stem cell (BMC) treatments provide a permanent cure to the injured tissue. In other instances, the treatments provide several years of improved function and pain relief. Our team will discuss your expected outcome with you based on your specific diagnosis, treatment plan, and personal goals.
Most patients return to normal, daily activities the same day after their treatment. Because these orthobiologic injections use your own cells and natural growth capabilities, the resulting pain relief typically begins around 4 to 8 weeks after treatment.
