PRP, Mesenchymal Stem Cell and Tenex/Tenjet Procedures

The doctors at The Center For Orthopedics and Sports Medicine (COSM) perform PRP and Mesenchymal 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 PRP/Mesenchymal Stem Cells practices in Ocean and Monmouth Counties. We offer these procedures with High discounts to patients as they are not generally covered by insurance companies.

The doctors at COSM perform the Tenex/Tenjet 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 PRP/Mesenchymal Stem Cell procedures with the Tenex/Tenjet 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.
