Innovative methods for joint revitalisation - not only for athletes

Damian Zaborowski Md
Orthopaedic/Traumatology Consultant

“Rejuvenation of Joints” (Odmładzanie stawów) is an innovative project in Polish orthopaedics. Thanks to state-of-the-art therapies and regenerative procedures, patients with chronic problems, injuries and articular pain can regain fitness to do the things they like. All the “Rejuvenation of Joints” procedures are only available at the Damian Hospital at Wałbrzyska 46 in Warsaw.

Specialists with extensive clinical experience, in close cooperation with the Orthopaedic/Traumatology Consultant, Doctior Damian Zaborowski, have joined their forces to provide medical care to all individuals suffering from articular pain.

Moreover, they have created a medical website dedicated to this subject. The motto of the project is “Fitness without Pain” (Sprawność bez bólu). It is fulfilled thanks to proper diagnosis as well as an individual and cutting-edge treatment programme. The experts of “Rejuvenation of Joints” assist in the prevention, treat and perform surgical procedures as well as prepare customised rehabilitation plans. The project has been joined by famous media and sport personalities. They regularly share their experiences related to the therapy programmes that allow them to develop the passions they are eager to share.

WHEN IT HURTS

Pain may appear for various reasons and irrespective of age. At www.odmladzaniestawow.pl, you can find a special module dedicated to patients. Thanks to the simplified scheme of injuries and orthopaedic conditions, all the individuals interested will learn more about sudden injuries, such as: twisting, dislocation, fracture, bruising, pulling and tearing. Each of them is characterised by different symptoms and manner of treatment. The interactive modules of the website facilitate diagnosis and advise how to optimally regain full fitness.

Sudden injuries may happen to all of us, as can sports injuries. Individuals who are regularly involved in sports activities are often at risk. If left untreated, such injuries can contribute to serious degeneration and deformations.

Many individuals often ignore the pain, because they do not understand its cause or they do not feel like or have time for making an appointment with a specialist, says Doctor Zaborowski. Our website is a signpost for the patient, which helps understand difficult medical terms and get to know cutting-edge methods for joint treatment, he adds.

NOT ONLY FOR ATHLETES

The “Rejuvenation of Joints” programme and the medical portal are intended not just for active individuals who lead a healthy life style, but need to give up on their passions due to pain. They are also designed for those who wish to make a quicker recovery after injuries, as well as those who need to undergo surgeries in order to restore the lost functions or boost articular regeneration.

Moreover, they are useful for the elderly to “extend the life of painful joints”, which will postpone radical treatment and improve the quality of life.

Certainly, it will also draw the attention of patients who struggle with degenerative joint disease or professional overload by helping them react at the right time to slow down the ageing and destruction process of their joints. Thanks to the “Pain Projection” (Rzutowanie bólu) module available on the website www.odmladzaniestawow.pl, everyone can find out more about the causes, symptoms and treatment of a given condition.

REGENERATION THERAPIES AND PROCEDURES

Depending on the patient’s problem and the specific needs, each treatment process is based on proper qualification for an individual therapy. This is achieved through a reliable consultation, during which it is possible to perform imaging tests, such as: X-ray, ultrasound, CT and MRI. Depending on the results obtained, a physician can prescribe the stem cell therapy, in which the cells are derived from the adipose (fatty) tissue by means of the Cytori technology, the therapy based on stem cells derived from the bone marrow using the Angel system, the Orthokine therapy, the platelet-rich plasma therapy with the Angel system, the viscosupplementation procedures or a full range of surgical procedures.

Have your joints checked at the Damian Hospital

Each patient is treated individually, according to his/her needs. Most commonly, the diagnostic process encompasses one or two consultations with an orthopaedist.

THE COURSE OF CONSULTATIONS

The first examination involves medical history taking and ultrasound analysis at the Damian hospital. If it is necessary, an X-ray may also be taken along with an orthopaedic evaluation. If it is necessary to use other tests, such as MRI, CT or laboratory tests, their results are evaluated at the subsequent consultation appointment.

During the second consultation, the final diagnosis is made based on the analysis of the prior examinations. The patient receives recommendations on the available modes of treatment: regenerative therapies and/or surgical procedures. The patient is provided with additional materials and information on the suggested treatment, so that s/he is able to choose an optimal therapy along with the physician.

THE EFFECTS OF THE “JOINT REJUVENATION” PROGRAMME

  • delaying the biological joint ageing process;
  • minimising overload lesions which results from, amongst others, professional work routine;
  • faster healing of injuries;
  • support for the post-operative recovery process;
  • biological renewal of joints.

WHAT IS VISCOSUPPLEMENTATION?

Viscosupplementation involves the application of hyaluronic acid in a special form. The preparation is administered in an injection by an orthopaedist under ultrasound supervision. Hyaluronic acid is the main component of the joint cartilage matrix. Introduced in this way, hyaluronic acid will improve the functioning of the joint and increase its mobility thanks to its oily properties. More information on viscosupplementation and other terms related to joint rejuvenation can be found at www.odmladzaniestawow.pl

WHAT IS THE ANGEL SYSTEM?

The Angel System refers to a computer-controlled cell separator unit for obtaining platelet-rich plasma with properly condensed concentration of growth hormones which are necessary to achieve the desired therapeutic effect. The task of the therapy is to boost the healing processes and positively influence the quality of the intra-articular, muscular or tendon structures.

THE ORTHOKINE THERAPY

This type of therapy demonstrates strong analgesic (painkilling) and anti-inflammatory action. A suitable preparation is supplied straight to the inflamed and painful site.

THE CYTORI THERAPY

The Cytori technology is a unique therapy that makes it possible to obtain stem cells from the adipose (fatty) tissue. The equipment used in this therapy has so far been used only in scientific centres. Stem cells considerably accelerate the regeneration of damaged structures.
