Find out if we can help you. Set up a complimentary phone consultation. We've spent 25 years pioneering and refining biologic orthopedic treatments. Dr. Stone holds around 50 U.S. patents on novel inventions to improve healthcare. He's always figuring out ways to improve. 

Transcript: "I dedicate myself to really trying to help people recover and become fitter, faster, and stronger than they were before they got hurt or before they developed arthritis. What I love the most is that everyday I get to help people. Not just help them, I get to think about how I might be able to do it better and I have the tools around me to innovate, to create those new technologies and a team of people around me who are as excited about it as I am. 
Quite frankly, it came from my own knee injury. I injured my knee in college, lost the meniscus cartilage, the shock absorber in my knee and I admired the surgeon who repaired it but was frustrated by how primitive the techniques were. They just took the cartilage out and threw it away and so I've spent much of my research career figuring out how to replace that meniscus tissue. 
So I do what I do because everything that I look at and I see, I think could be made better, could be improved. I've taught my children that most of what we know isn't true and if we are doing something next year that we were doing this year, we clearly haven't learned anything. So I want them to be better for my patients, I want better tools to use, I want surgery to be more efficient, more elegant, more effective and I want our patients' rehab to be quicker and better. I think about ways to make it better and I see ways to make them better and I am passionate about doing it."

Makoplasty-partial-knee-replacement
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?
Mind, Body, Gut Connection
Gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free…all these variations of diets originally designed to address irritable bowels are exploding—apparently, because people’s bowels are now explosive. Celiac, diverticulitis, irritable bowel syndrome, and their relatives are being diagnosed more frequently than ever. As a society, Americans are becoming both more mindful and more stressed. Could these be linked through the gut?
