When it comes to foot/ankle problems, our three main goals at Greco Medical Group are to avoid surgery, alleviate pain without drugs, and increase the patient’s activity. Yes we are fortunate to have life-changing surgery and medications to manage pain but we need to utilize our own body’s fantastic natural healing mechanisms. Cortisone shots usually are not injected into tendons and ligaments because of the risk of rupturing them. Cortisone helps with pain and inflammation but its effect is short lived.
There is an alternative! Greco Medical Group offers Orthobiologic treatments like PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and our exclusive purified next generation CRP (Cytokine Rich Plasma) . In our care even the most challenging cases have been able to reduce, and at times eliminate the need for medications or surgery. The real beauty of these treatments is that there are almost no side effects because Orthobiologics are derived from your own blood. They are tailored exactly for you…by you.
Greco Medical Group can honestly say we have been using PRP for the past 15 years, whether it was intra-operatively in orthopedic surgery or cardiothoracic surgery. Then 6 years ago, as part of a biotech company we developed the purified form of PRP that no one else is using called CRP (Cytokine Rich Plasma). We have published, lectured, and taught the benefits of Orthobiologics to physicians both nationally and internationally. Greco Medical Group has the experience and technology to help you heal yourself safely and naturally.
