Have you been told that you need arthroscopic surgery of the knee?

Have you been told you need arthroscopic surgery on your knee?

New evidence from recent long-term studies suggest that:


      - Knee surgery does not correct all cartilage problems (Aprato et al, 2016).


       - PRP can heal up to 52% of meniscus cartilage tears, without need for surgery (Kaminski et al, 2019).


Dr. Kelly Cunningham, a board-certified orthopedic surgeon and sports and regenerative medicine specialist, can discuss with you the pros and cons of surgery versus non-surgical treatment of knee meniscus and cartilage problems, even early arthritis.

He is a member of ICRS (International Cartilage Regeneration Society), AANA (Arthroscopy Association of North America), and has over 30 years of experience in treating sports and activity injuries of the knee. 


He has advised and treated countless “weekend warriors”, as well as US ski team members, area collegiate and professional athletes, and even members of the Dallas Cowboys during their training camp years in Austin.


As an expert in the dynamic & growing field of regenerative sports medicine, and skilled in the emerging science of cellular “stem cell” and PRP platelet therapy, he and the team at Austin OrthoBiologics can help you return to normal activity, often in a matter of days.
