Non-surgical Solutions to Musculoskeletal Injuries

About the Practice Things to Know

Pain does not have to be part of your daily life!

Regenerative medicine is the next frontier of sports medicine. Without surgery, it is possible to utilize the body’s own natural healing mechanisms to manage and recover from numerous musculoskeletal injuries.

At Paragon Sports Medicine, we stay on top of the latest research and science behind all the regenerative medicine techniques to help our active patients recover faster. Dr. Garten has been involved in multi-center research studies on various regenerative medicine therapies such as Platelet Rich Plasma, Bone Marrow Aspirate Stem Cell Injections and Amniotic Tissue Allograft Injections and serves as a principal investigator on two FDA clinical trials for regenerative medicine injections. He performs each of these techniques under ultrasound guidance to precisely target the diseased tissue and provide the best potential for a positive outcome.

Bone Marrow Aspirate Stem Cell Injection

Dr. Garten utilizes bone marrow stem cells by injecting them into the injured ligaments or cartilage of the knee, shoulder or hip. These stem cells cause a transition in the body's response, taking it from an inflammatory response to one of healing.

Adipose Derived Stem Cell Injection

Stem Cells from your own body, also known as Mesenchymal Stem Cells, have shown great success in helping our patients in the greater Atlanta area that are suffering from Osteoarthritis, or have cartilage injuries in their knee, shoulder or hip. This non-invasive procedure allows patients to use their own stem cells to work towards recovery and a pain-free life style.

Amniotic Tissue Allograft Injection

Purified growth factors from amniotic tissue are injected into an injured area and help by both promoting healing through stem cells and decreasing scar tissue growth. This helps facilitate the healing process for tendon and ligament tears, by helping you heal faster and reducing or eliminating the long term chronic pain from scar tissue at the tear site.

Platelet Rich Plasma Injection

Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP injections has had proven success for patients suffering from repetitive use injuries such as: Osteoarthritis, Tennis Elbow, Sacroiliac Joint Pain and other active sports-related injuries. Combined with the fact that it is a simple, effective and non-invasive out-patient procedure, patients across Atlanta are turning to Dr. Ched Garten for this life-renewing procedure.
