This is a new modality of treatment for orthopaedic problems of tendons, bones and joints. It consists of using the body’s own tissues to heal diseased areas.
Biomedical treatments stimulate natural tissue healing and augment the body’s own healing powers.
When an injury occurs to the body, it responds by releasing blood from the damaged blood vessels. Additionally cells are released into the area. These cells serve to limit the damage and heal the damage. Scar tissue forms over time to heal the damage. This is known as the natural healing process or “inflammation”.
Biomedical treatments augment and accelerate this healing process. An orthopaedic surgeon can help to aid this process by several measures which range from physical therapy to injections to surgical procedures. Dr.A.K.Venkatachalam is a member of the International cartilage research society. He has performed biomedical procedures to heal cartilage and bone. These comprise
Most of these procedures are performed either as outpatient or day care procedures.
