What Are Orthobiologics?

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.

As an active and progressive leader in the field of Regenerative Medicine, we’ve had the pleasure of seeing and experiencing amazing results. While we can’t guarantee complete recovery in each case, here are some of the success stories and testimonials that we can share.

View all testimonials

Dr. Ambach is very knowledgeable about regenerative medicine and all the injection therapies. She is very concerned with her patients’ well-being and looks for solutions that will work for each patient. She has helped my lumbar pain tremendously with PRP in both the epidural space and facet joints. She’s awesome.


Scott S.

I went to many doctors to find out what was wrong with my foot. Finally a friend referred me to Dr. Rodgers and he gave me a proper diagnostics and solution to my problems. Once we found out what it was and decided on PRP. Dr. Rodgers carefully examined the area and inserted it into my foot. Him and his staff were extremely kind and comforting before, during and after the procedure. I truly believe this whole staff really wants to help each and every single patient as best as they can. They treat you like family and you feel like your family when you are there. Thank you very much for everything and I will be recommending you to all my family and friends.


Matthew K.

I saw Dr Ambach for left hip pain and she did a thorough exam with ultrasound and my MRI, and then did PRP. Not only was she thorough, but very kind and understanding. Since the PRP I feel like I have a new hip thanks to her! I cannot say enough good things about her and her office!


Theresa G.

Dr. Rogers is truly brilliant. He has expertly treated me for chronic shoulder and back pain, which were resultant from 25 years as a US Marine Officer. Noteworthy, he astutely assessed the acute achilles tendonitis injury to my left leg and expertly using platelet-rich plasma (PRP), completely resolved the condition and nagging pain. Thanks to Dr. Rogers’ outstanding acumen, I have finally been able to resume bother running and biking completely pain free. Even more incredible, my left achilles came back stronger that the right! Extremely personable, he is also very open-minded and thoughtfully considers multiple options to treating any condition, which has precluded surgeries and other invasive procedures. I could not be more grateful. He has secured my highest recommendation. Thank you Dr. Rogers.


George M.

I became a patient of Dr. Ambach about 2 years ago when I was looking for alternatives to back surgery. Dr. Ambach is very personal, knowledgeable, and has great bedside manner. She took her time in evaluating me. I never felt rushed. Her staff is extremely friendly as well. I finally made the decision to move forward with stem cell treatment. After about 3 and a half months, post treatment, I am starting to see results. This is very exciting to me, especially as an Ironman triathlete. I feel like I am going to be able to return to the sport of triathlon with confidence. If your considering stem cell therapy or any other kind of regeneration therapy, I would highly recommend you to visit Dr. Ambach.


Dave S.

I saw Dr Rogers yesterday and really appreciated his friendly manner and his willingness to explain what was happening with my back and the best way to treat it. He took all the time I needed and really knew what he was doing. I would be comfortable recommending him to anyone.
