Non-Surgical Options

Many orthopedic problems can be treated successfully without surgery. Our team of experts will work closely with you to provide the non-surgical options that meet the needs of your individual condition. Here are some of the options we offer, with more options offered on individual orthopedic pages.

Physical TherapyPhysical Therapy

OhioHealth Orthopedic Physical and Occupational Therapy staff work with patients of all ages to reduce pain, increase function and return them to an active lifestyle.

PRP TherapyPRP Therapy

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a non-surgical treatment in which blood plasma with concentrated platelets, bioactive proteins and other growth factors are injected into an injury to stimulate the healing process. These bioactive proteins initiate healing in connective tissues such as in the knees and shoulders, as well as initiate repair of bone and cartilage. Merging cutting-edge technology with the body's natural ability to heal itself, PRP therapy is a great treatment option for soft-tissue injuries and arthritis.


Fluoroscopically Guided InjectionFluoroscopically Guided Injection

Injections to the vertebrae are used to treat leg pain caused by irritation to the spinal nerves. It reduces inflammation and blocks pain to allow the body to begin the process of healing itself. It also provides accurate diagnosis of the source of the pain.

When Surgery Is Necessary

Our surgeons look at you as an individual, talk with you about your life and then provide surgical options. We help you understand when surgery is truly necessary and present you with options so you can make the most informed decision possible. Our orthopedic surgeons offer a range of expertise across a number of specialties including foot and ankle, shoulder and hip. From minimally invasive surgery to total joint replacement, we have the most experience in orthopedic surgery and provide care close to home at all our OhioHealth hospitals and outpatient facilities. Here’s a look at some of our more innovative procedures.

Hand and MicrosurgeryHand and Microsurgery

Advances in microsurgery have made it possible for surgeons to reattach severed limbs using a high-powered operating microscope, microsutures and special surgical techniques. This allows our surgeons to not only reattach severed parts, but also repair the tiny blood vessels and nerves needed to recover use of the reattached finger, hand or arm. Learn more about our hand and microsurgery services.


MAKOplasty® Partial Knee ResurfacingMAKOplasty® Partial Knee Resurfacing

MAKOplasty partial knee resurfacing makes surgery a more palatable option for patients who have been reluctant to pursue traditional knee surgeries that often require months of recovery. It's a less invasive treatment option than total knee replacement and allows surgeons to treat knee osteoarthritis at earlier stages. Learn more about this procedure.
