Orthopaedic Treatments Non-Surgical

There are many conditions that our Orthopaedic Consultants care for which may be treated through non-surgical means. Highgate Private Hospital offers innovative solutions which could result in avoiding surgery.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy

At Highgate Private Hospital Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is available for the treatment of a number of Orthopaedic conditions, including osteoarthritis, tendonitis and many soft tissue sports injuries.

PRP, which is also referred to as ACP (Autologous Concentrated Plasma), is where a concentrated mixture of platelets from your own blood is used to treat a number of Orthopaedic conditions. Platelets naturally occur in your own blood and part of their function is to stimulate healing.

nSTRIDE is a new treatment for osteoarthritis of the joints, particularly in the knee. It is known as an ‘autologous’ protein injection, meaning it contains proteins that have been taken from your own body. nSTRIDE involves taking a blood sample from your arm and processing the blood to separate out a protein-rich liquid. This liquid is then injected back into your knee joint to help alleviate the symptoms of osteoarthritis.

Stem Cell Therapy

In joint repair, the role of stem cells is to treat early-stage arthritis of the hip and knee joints. The cartilage on the joint surface is the barrier to arthritis and once this layer is damaged, it is likely to progress. Arthritic progression will present as pain, stiffness and loss of function in the joint. Autologous Stem Cell Therapy may be used in an attempt to encourage regeneration of this cartilage layer. This procedure is designed to help preserve the natural hip and knee joints and can delay or potentially prevent the need for a major operation such as a hip or knee replacement.
