COUNCIL BLUFFS, IOWA – Miller Orthopedic Specialists introduces MOS Regenerative Medicine Solutions, a non-surgical treatment that uses a patient’s own stem cells to promote healing within.  MOS Regenerative Medicine Solutions has multiple types of treatments that utilizes the patient’s own blood, begin healing at the cellular level to quicken the healing process, concentrate the growth factors and prolong the need for potential surgery.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a concentration of platelets and growth factors created from a small amount of your own blood. It focuses on concentrating the healing factors to increase the speed of recovery. This is a treatment we have already been doing for about 3 years with good results.

Autologous Conditioned Plasma (ACP) is a rapid concentration of platelets and growth factors from the patient’s own blood. Autologous means that it is from your own body.

Amniotic Fluid (AF) is a protein-rich fluid with proven regenerative potential that is injected into the patient.

NEW Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery Comes to the Area

Innovative Robotic Technology Allows Surgeons to Personalize Procedures to Each Patient.

When it comes to joint replacement surgery, experience and precision are critical.  Miller Orthopedic Specialists total joint specialists, Dr. Clayton C. Thor, is the first in the area to offer patients a new, innovative option for partial and total knee replacements using the Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgical System.

This highly advanced robotic technology provides Dr. Thor an additional tool for performing joint replacement surgery allowing for more predictable accuracy and a personalized surgery based on the patient’s specific diagnosis and anatomy.

Using a 3D virtual model, Dr. Thor creates each patient’s individualized, surgical plan pre-operatively before entering the operating room. During surgery, the doctor can make any necessary adjustments while guiding the robotic-arm to execute that plan.  This guidance helps the patient to recover quickly because it spares the muscles and limits tissue damage.

Dr. Thor trained on the Mako system during his fellowship and is certified to perform surgeries using the assistance of this technology. This procedure, despite being so new, is covered by insurance as well.  It increases your recovery speed and quality of life because of its precision and personalization to each patient.

The Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery is just another way Miller Orthopedic Specialists is staying at the forefront of technology.

You can learn more about this procedure and other advancements in hip and knee pain/surgeries on February 21st, 11:30am at our Omaha location.
