Cutting Edge Treatments Q & A

What cutting-edge, non-surgical orthopedic treatments are available?

Some of the cutting edge non-surgical treatments available at Metairie Orthopedics & Sports Medicine include:

PRP injections

PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is a form of regenerative medicine that uses growth factors extracted from the patient’s blood. These growth factors are part of the body's natural repair systems that can heal tissue damage and produce new, healthy cells.

After a blood draw, Dr. Bostick extracts the growth factors from your blood, purifies and concentrates them, then injects them into the site of your pain. PRP is particularly useful for accelerating the healing of soft tissue damage.

Arthritis injections 

Cutting-edge, non-operative arthritis treatments include ultrasound-guided injections such as viscosupplementation, corticosteroid, Platelet-Rich-Plasma and Lipogems.  Viscosupplementation involves injecting hyaluronic acid (a natural lubricant) into your joints, while steroid injections deliver potent anti-inflammatory medication to the source of your pain. PRP and Lipogems injections can also help some patients with arthritis.

Dr. Bostick uses image-guidance to deliver injectable treatments. This ensures that your medication reaches the precise point where it can do the most good while avoiding any tissue damage from the needle.

What cutting-edge surgical treatments are available?

Dr. Bostick uses cutting-edge arthroscopic surgery techniques to treat many orthopedic conditions, including:

  • Meniscal tears
  • Labral tears
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Arthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Ligament tears (ACL tear, etc.)

Arthroscopic surgery requires much smaller incisions than traditional open surgery. Dr. Bostick uses an arthroscope – a long instrument with a camera on the end – that fits through one of the small incisions. The arthroscope sends back images of the surgery site that Dr. Bostick views on a screen, using other specialized instruments to complete the surgery.

Dr. Bostick also uses state-of-the-art techniques such as robotic-assisted joint replacement surgery.

What diagnostic technologies support cutting-edge orthopedic treatment?

Metairie Orthopedics & Sports Medicine has digital X-ray facilities on-site for your convenience, as well as cutting-edge diagnostic ultrasound.  

If you have a problem with your joints that requires further investigation, Dr. Bostick can use the Mi-Eye 2 arthroscopy to assess your condition. This is an in-office procedure that doesn't require general anesthesia. It allows Dr. Bostick to see the inner structures of your joints in great detail, find any loose bone or cartilage fragments, and assess soft tissue damage.

Metairie Orthopedics & Sports Medicine specializes in these cutting-edge treatments and diagnostics, offering them all in one location for the most efficient and effective results. Call the practice today to find out more or book an appointment online.
