Joint Preservation at OU Health

Joint preservation techniques – many available in Oklahoma only from the orthopedic experts at OU Health – can help extend your ability to function well. Especially as an active young person, you may avoid early joint replacement when you and your care team choose one of several innovative and less invasive treatments, such as injections of platelet-rich plasma and bone marrow or other orthobiologics.

Joint preservation procedures for injuries or chronic conditions of joints in your hips, knees, ankles or feet may involve cartilage transplant or corrective osteotomy, which realigns the joint to restore the mechanical axis of the extremity and prolong the life of the original joint.

Options also may include arthroscopic procedures or robotic-assisted, minimally invasive surgery procedures.
