How to avoid a total knee replacement with a BioKnee

Submitted by admin on 1 October 2018

At the Stone Clinic in San Francisco we've developed an alternative to joint replacement that we call BIOKNEE. If you've got a painful knee either because you've got arthritis or you've lost the meniscus cartilage, we can put back in the biological tissues that you've lost. We can put back in a new meniscus cartilage from a donor, we graft your damaged articular cartilage with your own bone and cartilage and stem cells and we recreate those new surfaces biologically rather than with artificial materials.

Articular cartilage repair

Submitted by admin on 1 October 2018

If you have damaged your articular cartilage, the bearing surface inside the joint, you may be experiencing pain and swelling. At The Stone Clinic in San Francisco, Dr. Kevin Stone has developed a technique called the articular cartilage paste graft, which uses your own bone, cartilage and stem cells to create repair tissue which can be pasted over that damaged surface. Find out if we can help you with a complimentary phone consultation http://www.stoneclinic.com/schedule-c...

Bio ankle patient story

Submitted by admin on 1 October 2018

 

After being told that he may need to fuse his ankle, or wear an ankle brace, our patient traveled from Arizona to have an arthroscopic regenerative procedure to biologically rebuild his ankle. 2 years later he runs once a week, hikes and with no issues other than some slight stiffness, which he says lasts no more than a day. Find out if we can help you. Set up a complimentary phone consultation.

Achilles tendon rupture and treatment

Submitted by admin on 1 October 2018

 

At The Stone Clinic in San Francisco, we've seen athletes make a full recovery from a ruptured Achilles. The way we treat the injury is different from most other places, (including the clinic that operated on Kobe Bryant). The most common approach is to open up the wound, unfortunately losing valuable cells and growth factors that the body has produced around the injury site to begin the repair process.

What's the best way to fix a ruptured Achilles tendon?

Submitted by admin on 1 October 2018

 

The Achilles tendon connects the muscles of the calf to the calcaneus, or heel bone. It is designed to stretch. This serves to absorb force as an athlete lands from a jump, and to deliver power to the foot in walking and running. The tendon tissue is flat, with a good blood supply, and serves most women well for their entire lifetime. 

Why does Achilles tendon rupture vex men in their 40s and 50s? And why is the repair so troublesome?

Treating Stiff Joints

Submitted by admin on 1 October 2018

If you've got a stiff or injured joint, one of the things you can do is to lubricate the joint. At The Stone Clinic in San Francisco, Dr. Kevin Stone is able to loosen the joint by injecting hyaluronic acid, the natural lubricant of the joint. Sometimes it's done with growth factors and sometimes just as the joint lubricant.
