Understand your injury

Learn about your injury

The Stone Clinic Symptom Checker

If you’re not sure what might be wrong with your joint, our self diagnosis tool  for the knee, shoulder and ankle is a good place to start. It won’t replace a real doctor and cannot give a definitive diagnosis but it may help you better understand your symptoms.

 

 

 

Search by diagnosis

If you already have a diagnosis, select from the drop-downs to understand more about your injury or disorder and how we can treat it.

We believe in the power

We believe in the power of the human body to heal itself. In this new “anabolic” era of joint repair, we are able to harness and augment natural healing and combine it with advanced medical technologies to repair orthopedic injuries. We use stem cell techniques and offer Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections. Learn more about how biologic treatments work and how we can rebuild joints using donor tissue.

Robotic Joint Center

A biologic knee replacement is always our first option but if it’s not right for you then a partial knee replacement is the next best thing. We use state of the art robotic technology for increased accuracy and faster patient recovery.

Total Knee Replacement San Francisco

If you have advanced arthritis in multiple compartments of the knee, a total knee replacement is usually the best choice. We use the best replacement devices available to allow maximum activity.

We are changing the treatment


We are changing the treatment paradigm for osteoarthritis. No longer is it acceptable to be told to stop your activities, take anti-inflammatories and wait until your arthritis has progressed until it warrants a joint replacement. There are ways to fix it.

Physical Therapy San Francisco

Physical therapy is an integral part of our practice. Working with our onsite physical therapists makes a huge difference to how you heal.

Fitness Programs for Joint Health at the Stone Clinic in San Francisco

Energizing, high intensity interval training programs are taken under the careful guidance of physical therapists. The programs cover general fitness, post injury recovery, ACL injury prevention and ski season preparation.

Nutrition for Joint Health

Dietary advice to promote strong healthy bones and speed up healing. We often recommend joint lubricators, taking glucosamine and injecting hyaluronic acid (HA).
