What Are DHC Procedures for Knees?

DHC uses sophisticated image-guided injections to place high-dose platelet-rich plasma or HCTP products in critical areas to primarily help cushion and protect the joint/tissue and secondarily help to rejuvenate the area. These are breakthrough, non-surgical treatments for people suffering from knee pain due to common injuries to the knee meniscus, ACL or MCL, cartilage, or who are experiencing degenerative conditions, such as osteoarthritis. So, if you’re looking for alternative to surgery for knees in Colorado, then look no further than the Downtown’s Healthcare (Two locations – Downtown Denver & Lowry).

Traditional options for patients suffering from these conditions include arthroscopic knee surgery to repair ligament tears, or total knee joint replacement. With both surgeries, months of rehab are required, and the patient must be aware of and prepared to take on the risks as well as costs. As an alternative, Downtown’s Healthcare uses a multi disciplinary approach which may help alleviate knee pain and the conditions that cause it with a sophisticated team approach.
