Joint Preservation

OU Medicine orthopedic surgeons offer a Joint Preservation Clinic providing adult patients the chance to enjoy a healthy and active lifestyle by improving or maintaining joint function, sometimes without the need for replacement or prosthetics.

Joint preservation interventions can address injuries or chronic illnesses involving the shoulder, elbow, hip, knee, ankle and foot. Treatments may involve surgery, including bone or cartilage transplants, and the latest biologic techniques like injection of platelet-rich plasma and bone marrow to enhance joint healing and cartilage health.
