By adopting new technologies and developing new techniques, orthopedic surgeons at Shasta Orthopaedics provide patient excellent care to ensure they maintain a high quality of life.
Shasta Orthopaedics was the first in the country to introduce some of the newest orthopaedic techniques, including minimally invasive surgery and computer-assisted knee replacements. We continue to research the latest technologies to diagnose and treat the breadth of orthopaedic injuries with traditional and innovative surgical and nonsurgical techniques.
PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma)
PRP is a ground breaking non-operative treatment option that relieves pain by naturally promoting long lasting healing of musculoskeletal conditions. Many famous athletes — Tiger Woods, tennis star Rafael Nadal, and several others — have received PRP for various problems, such as sprained knees and chronic tendon injuries. Some athletes have credited PRP with their being able to return more quickly to competition with minimal to no pain at all. This rapidly emerging technique shows very promising potential for many conditions such as arthritis, tendonitis, and ligament sprains and tears.
Stem Cell Injections
Working in conjunction with Nor Cal Stem Cell Center, we are dedicated to cutting edge, highly professional procurement and delivery of autologous mesenchymal stem cells. Our process involves delivering stem cells throughout the body (systemically), as well as locally to the affected organ, when appropriate. This gives the patient the opportunity to use their own cells, now optimally directed, to heal a damaged body part or organ system.
OrthoFlo is an amniotic fluid allograft which helps to cushion, lubricate and protect the joint. This cutting edge process helps expedite the healing process.
Amnio fix (Sister Product to PRP)
AmnioFix® reduces scar tissue formation, modulates inflammation in the surgical site, enhances healing, and acts as a barrier.
Viscosupplementation injects a gel-like fluid into the knee joint. This fluid acts as a lubricant to enable bones to move smoothly over each other and as a shock absorber for joint loads.
Digital X-Ray System
Digital X-rays provide patients with speed in processing and better quality images.
Navio Robotics is changing the way orthopaedics are delivered. The NAVIO Surgical System features proprietary robotics-assisted technology that integrates handheld instruments with an intuitive CT-free registration and patient-specific planning process. The NAVIO hand-held robotics-assisted total knee arthroplasty (TKA) system is designed to deliver consistent and accurate results through the utilization of a surgeon controlled robotics-assisted hand piece, coupled with NAVIO specific cut guides.
