Dr. Fox has been providing quality Orthopedic care for his patients in Ocean & Monmouth Counties since 1989. Dr. Fox is a board certified, fellowship trained orthopedic surgeon.

PRP, Stem Cell and Tenex Procedures
The doctors at The Center For Orthopedics and Sports Medicine (COSM) perform PRP and Stem Cell Procedures
that stimulate and enhance healing of bone and soft tissue injuries, such as tendons and ligiments. These procedures, which we commonly perform on athletes, enhance healing and are an alternative to surgery. The American Academy of Othopedic Surgery (AAOS) named this as the hottest topic in orthopedics.
COSM is one of the top stem cell procedure practices in Ocean and Monmouth Counties. We are the only practice that will perform these stem cell procedures with no payment from the patient in most cases (most patients qualify).
Drs. Fox, Agesen and Dunn perform the Tenex procedure for all tendon problems. This is a minimally invasive, ultrasound guided, non-surgical approach to eliminate scar tissue and regenerate tendons, which is a source of chronic pain in joints such as elbows (including tennis elbow), knees (patella tendon and quadriceps tendon), as well as Achilles tendon, plantar fasciitis and shoulders. The doctors at COSM also combine the stem cell procedures and the Tenex procedure.
Alternatives to Knee Replacement Surgery
The doctors at COSM perform Viscoelastic Supplementation/Hyaluronic acid injections for arthritis. These injections offer both is a lubrication and shock absorption for the knee and are an excellent alternative to surgery.
Total knee replacement surgery is not indicated in certain circumstances nor desirable to the patient. We perform many minimally invasive alternatives to total knee replacement surgery.
