Why a Biologic Knee Replacement is Better than a Bionic Knee Replacement
The Stone Clinic in San Francisco is at the forefront of orthopedic surgery. We regenerate and rebuild, rather than replace with metals and plastics. We take a biologic approach to treating joint injuries and arthritis, preserving as much of the natural biology of the joint as possible, often rebuilding with donor tissue, in order to avoid or delay a joint replacement.
The way we see it, the current standard of care for osteoarthritis is failing patients. Being told to “stop your activities, take pain killers and wait until you need a joint replacement” is outdated and unacceptable. It is possible to repair and prevent some types of osteoarthritis with our BioKnee program.
