Cartilage restoration procedures can help you find relief from joint pain and physical limitations that develop as a result of cartilage damage. If you are an athlete – whether you play professionally or just enjoy staying active – and you suffer from cartilage damage, trust in Brian C. Domby, M.D. at Florida Medical Orthopaedics, Sports Medicine & Spine help you decrease pain and regain your vitality.
Dr. Domby is a fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon and sports medicine physician who has dedicated his life to helping men, women, and children maintain active and healthy lifestyles through cartilage restoration and other forms of orthopaedic treatment. As a former Division I college soccer player at the University of North Carolina at Asheville and a current Category 1 road cyclist, Dr. Domby understands the need to compete and stay active – even in the midst of joint pain. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections use a patient’s own blood to help rebuild a damaged cartilage. Other treatment options include:
- Microfracture surgery
- Osteoarticular transfer system (OATS) surgery
- Autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI) surgery
When you’re seen by Dr. Domby, he will complete a thorough evaluation, listening to your symptoms and gaining a full understanding of what you’re dealing with. Then, together, you will decide if a cartilage restoration procedure is right for you. Dr. Domby performs a variety of minimally invasive procedures to help reduce his patient’s pain and recovery time.
