Long Island Center for Orthobiologics

An emerging treatment at the Center of Orthobiologics is Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP). This revolutionary procedure can relieve pain by promoting musculoskeletal healing – and has shown significant potential for alleviating symptoms associated with conditions such as plantar fasciitis and knee and shoulder disorder, and injuries including tennis and golfer’s elbow, muscle tears and ankle and ligament sprains.

When the human body suffers a soft-tissue injury, it responds by delivering platelet cells (brimming with growth and healing “factors”) to the injured area. PRP Therapy intensifies this natural healing process with a concentrated dose of platelet-rich plasma, created by placing a small sample of the patient’s blood into a high-speed centrifuge, which separates platelets from other blood components. Since it’s the patient’s own blood, there’s no chance of transmissible infection and the risk of allergic reaction is low – but tissue recovery can be dramatically enhanced.

In addition to PRP we routinely use Hylauronic viscosupplementation injections in the office to ease the pain from osteoarthritis conditions in the knee and shoulder joints. Many times by using these injections patients have been able to avoid surgery altogether.These viscosupplementation injections are routinely covered by most insurance companies. These injections are also made more accurate and effective and less painful by the use of ultrasound guidance to place the medication exactly where it will work the best with no unintended joint damage from the needle.

Lastly Dr.Weissberg is currently training to use Stem Cell injections as a possible helper in the healing of damaged tissues including joint cartilage, meniscal tissue and ligaments. As research elucidates the best use and techniques for Stem Cell treatment the Center for Orthobiologics will be prepared to treat our patients with the best treatment protocols available.
