Orthopedics plus biologics is the emerging science of applying the biology of enhanced native healing of joint cartilage and tissue to the field of orthopedic sports medicine.
Advances in biologic therapy are allowing the use of natural substances, such as an athlete’s own plasma and stem cells or donor cartilage grafts, to be modified and then re-introduced to injured areas to promote healing in ways never before possible. This can now be accomplished by both surgical and non-surgical means.
Technology is progressing rapidly. While currently able to repair, replace, or restore damaged cartilage, the ultimate goal is to regenerate tissue and allow complete return of joint structure and function in the recovery of the injured athlete.
