Considering Knee Surgery?
Has your doctor told you your knee is bone on bone? Is a knee replacement really your best option? In this video, Dr. Matt Gianforte reveals that usually there is a chance that these integrative treatment options can help you avoid surgery and prolong the life of your joint.

That’s not all though!
Many people who suffer from osteoarthritis knee pain are unaware that their pain is not originating in their knee, but rather in systemic inflammation occurring through the whole body. Our physical medicine team has decades of experience reducing and relieving pain through an integrative approach.
Research Suggests There Is A Better Approach To Knee Pain Relief
A landmark study from Baylor Medical School used this headline for their report “Study Finds Common Knee Surgery No Better Than Placebo.” The New York Times article about this study calls it a “sham procedure.” This study challenges the usefulness of arthroscopic lavage or debridement surgery finding the effectiveness no better than that of placebo surgery. An additional study including 180 participants found that people who had no surgery (placebo surgery) did better than those who had cartilage removed or flushed out.
Additional Treatment Options For Knee Pain Relief
We also use regenerative therapy and other regenerative medicine options to actually repair the damaged tissue in your knee. If you have had failed surgeries to remove cartilage and are now looking at a potential knee replacement, regenerative therapy could be the solution for you.
We could not be more proud to offer this option for pain relief to our community and our patients are ecstatic at the results they are experiencing. This non-invasive, safe, fast, and effective option is changing the landscape and shifting the paradigm for how the medical community views knee pain.
