Musculoskeletal injuries can happen unexpectedly or be due to accumulated wear and tear. When pain interrupts your daily activities, interferes with your sleep, or keeps you out of the game, the experts at Orthopaedic Specialists of Dallas (OSD) recommend calling their team of specialists.
Orthopaedic care is not a one-size-fits-all approach. Individuals searching for excellent care and innovative surgical options put their trust in the experienced OSD physicians. The carefully chosen medical team is highly regarded for their expertise and knowledge. Servicing Rockwall, Wylie, Forney, and Terrell, they maintain a high standard of orthopaedic care utilizing cutting-edge techniques and the latest technological advances.
The focus at OSD is providing the most appropriate care for the patient. They offer conservative treatment ranging from stem cell, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), bracing, and therapy. OSD is committed to integrity, open communication, and accurate, efficient patient care within the community.
PRP is an in-office procedure facilitating restoration of an affected area, typically the joints. A patient’s blood is drawn and separated from its plasma and platelets. The richly concentrated platelets are injected directly into the joint. The use of PRP promotes faster healing, resulting in effective outcomes.
Stem cell therapy is also used for joint regeneration, utilizing the body’s natural healing mechanism to renew and repair diseased or damaged tissues. It’s promising results treating various orthopaedic, cardiovascular, neuromuscular, and autoimmune conditions.
After other modalities have been implemented and surgery is necessary, arthroscopy offers patients a minimally invasive option with quicker healing and recovery. Through a small incision, an orthopaedic surgeon inserts a narrow tube with a tiny fiber-optic video camera into the joint. The camera’s transferred images allow surgeons to repair joint damage using small tools.
OSD has been in our community for 15 years.
