Beyond the Knife: Alternatives to Surgery
Surgery is no longer necessary for many injuries, ailments, and conditions for which it used to be the only option. It is invasive and unpredictable, and recuperation is often slow and painful. Surgery does not guarantee healing and can leave patients vulnerable to serious infections. The bottom line is that the natural healing mechanisms of the body are responsible for repairing and mending any injury or condition.
From shoulders to ankles, Dr. Lazar's patients have experienced firsthand the incredible healing power of the combination of modern medicine and the body's natural healing processes. More than one thousand of his patients have benefited from platelet-rich plasma therapy, where a patient's platelets are extracted from their blood and when necessary combined with stem cells from their abdominal fat or bone marrow, and re-injected into the injured site.
The results of the platelet-rich plasma treatments speak for themselves: baseball pitchers are back on the mound a few weeks after being benched with shoulder injuries. Tennis players sidelined with tennis elbow are able to again hit shots without pain. Everyday people suffering from debilitating knee pain are now walking with ease.
People everywhere, in all walks of life, are gaining full mobility and improved quality of life faster-without surgery.
