ORTHOBIOLOGICS are substances derived from cells and cell products found in your own body. They are designed to heal bones, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, muscles, nerves and intervertebral discs. We use them to permanently heal injured tissues more quickly and naturally. Examples of Orthobiologics include platelets, plasma, fibrin, protease inhibitors, growth factors and stem cells.
San Diego Orthobiologics Medical Group provides the most comprehensive treatment options currently available in San Diego. We believe that each patient is unique and deliver customized care designed to produce outstanding results. Our team of world class physicians combine the best of traditional orthopedic care with innovative regenerative medicine therapies.

LIPOGEMS® is not simply a “stem cell” treatment. Rather, it’s a comprehensive Regenerative Medicine treatment that uses your own stem cells and their cellular "niche" to maximize results. Mesenchymal stem cells require support from other cells and proteins to exert their healing benefits. Unlike other so-called “stem cell” treatments, the unique advantage of LIPOGEMS® is that the complete healing environment of the fat tissue is maintained to improve cell viability.

Add New Dr. Christopher Rogers is RMSK certified and has more than 14 years experience using Musculoskeletal (MSK) Ultrasound Imaging. This diagnostic modality uses harmless sound waves to safely visualize many parts of the body in the clinic. ...
Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Imaging uses high frequency soundwaves to quickly take a picture of your source of pain. Although X-ray and MRI are extremely useful imaging tools, an ultrasound examination often can see what they miss. Injuries to tendons, ligaments, nerves and blood vessels are easily visualized with extremely high precision. Muscle contractions and joint motions are seen in real-time. Once the cause of your pain is established, customized treatment will.
Stanford University scientists have discovered a biologic indicator of cartilage degeneration and inflammation in patients with arthritis, disc degeneration or sciatica. This molecular complex is called the Fibronectin-Aggrecan Complex (FAC). Alpha 2 Macroglobulin (A2M) is a natural substance found ...
Arthritis causes millions of Americans to suffer every day. Cartilage destruction and joint inflammation make it difficult for people with arthritis to exercise, sleep, and maintain their health. The discovery of a molecule found in the blood has the potential to improve their lives significantly. Alpha-2-macroglobulin (A2M) is a powerful inhibitor of cartilage degeneration and stops the progression of osteoarthritis by preventing cartilage breakdown. Cytonics has developed a breakthrough technology.
