KLKN Channel 8 News interviewed Dr. Dugas today to discuss orthobiologic procedures. Orthobiologics is a great alternative treatment to surgical intervention to help the healing process in fractures and joints. Orthobiologic products are made from substances that are naturally found in your body. When used in higher concentrations, they may help speed up the healing process. Orthobiologics injections augment the body’s healing process that takes place naturally, whether due to injuries or degenerative diseases. Unlike cortisone injections (which just temporarily treat the pain), orthobiologics help cells restore some of the joint or bone’s normal function. This helps minimize pain which in turn helps you participate in the activities you desire.
