What is Orthobiologics?
At the Center for Orthobiologics at Georgia Bone and Joint, we use growth factors from platelet rich plasma (PRP) harvested from a patient’s vein or concentrated cells which are derived from a patient’s bone marrow. We inject these cells under image guidance in a same day procedure into damaged tissues in order to achieve the best long term outcomes. Examples of common conditions we treat are bone, cartilage, muscle, tendon, and ligament injuries. Our doctor’s specific expertise combines with our surgical capabilities to make Georgia Bone & Joint your best orthopedic option on the Southside of the Atlanta market including Coweta, Fayette, Henry, Douglas, Meriwether, Spalding and Troup counties.
