Discover the Stone method

The Stone Clinic is different. We take a biologic approach to treating joint injuries and arthritis, preserving as much of the natural biology of the joint as possible in order to avoid or delay a joint replacement. We care for you every step of the way from onsite x-rays and MRIs, to expert physical therapy. Our patients become like family to us. Learn more about our method.

Knees do not necessarily wear out evenly, sometimes one part of the knee is perfectly fine while another part is completely destroyed. If only part of the knee joint is worn out, why replace all of it?
Treatments for joint injuries have vastly improved during the past decade. Two of our best non-operative strategies are stem cell or growth factor injections. How do they differ—and which is best?
New ways to heal joints can keep us fitter as we age
