At Dr. Timmerman’s clinic in Walnut Creek, California, the following specialties are offered:
Knee injuries can range from minor ACL sprains to more serious meniscal tears and instability. In the past, treatment options were limited, but today there are various options available depending on the severity of your injury. For ACL injuries, surgery may be necessary to repair the ligament and restore stability to the joint. For meniscal tears, arthroscopic surgery can remove the damaged tissue and relieve pain.
Knee arthritis is a common condition that can cause pain and stiffness. Dr. Timmerman offers a variety of treatment options available for knee injuries including arthroscopic procedures, PRP therapy, and Regenokine® treatment.
Shoulder injuries can be painful and debilitating, making it difficult to perform everyday tasks. The most commonly encountered shoulder injuries include labral tears, shoulder impingements, acromioclavicular (AC) joint dislocation, and shoulder arthritis. Fortunately, there are a number of effective treatment options available. These include arthroscopic labral repairs, shoulder strengthening, and bicep tendon repair. No matter what type of shoulder injury you're dealing with, there's a treatment option that can help you get back to your normal life.
The elbow joint is a commonly injured joint. Typically, elbow injuries occur in athletes due to overuse or trauma. Common elbow conditions include tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, biceps tendon ruptures, and elbow arthritis. Fortunately, elbow injuries can be effectively treated to get you back on the field. At Laura Timmerman, M.D., we provide comprehensive orthopaedic treatments in the form of PRP therapy, Regenokine® injections, ultrasonography, and elbow arthroscopies.
PRP therapy, or platelet-rich plasma therapy, is a cutting-edge treatment that can be used to address a variety of musculoskeletal issues. During PRP therapy, a concentration of platelets and growth factors is injected into the affected area. These growth factors then help to stimulate the healing process, resulting in reduced pain and improved function.
PRP therapy has been shown to be particularly effective in treating shoulder, knee, and elbow injuries. In many cases, PRP therapy can provide relief when other treatments have failed. At our clinic, we have a biologics lab that prepares PRP injections for your specific condition.
The Regenokine® injection is a new and exciting treatment option for pain and inflammation. The injection is made from the patient's own blood, which is then injected into the joint or other area of pain. The blood is rich in natural growth factors and cytokines, which help to reduce pain and inflammation.
In addition, the injection helps to stimulate the body's natural repair processes, leading to faster healing. Regenokine® can be used effectively for any body part except the neck and back. At Laura Timmerman, M.D., we have our own biologics lab to prepare Regenokine® injections for your specific condition.
At our state-of-the-art biologics lab, we prepare PRP and Regenokine® injections for our patients. PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is derived from the patient's own blood and contains high concentrations of growth factors that can promote healing. Regenokine®, also derived from the blood of the patient, contains both anti-inflammatory proteins and growth factors that have been shown to reduce inflammation and pain.
Both PRP and Regenokine® injections are nonsurgical treatments that can be used to alleviate pain and improve joint function. If you are considering PRP or Regenokine® injections, we will help you determine if these treatments are right for you.
The ultrasound facility at our orthopaedic clinic is top of the line and provides superior quality images. The advantage of ultrasound over other imaging modalities is that it does not use ionizing radiation, making it much safer for patients. In addition, ultrasound can be used to visualize soft tissues, tendons, and ligaments, which are often the source of pain in orthopaedic patients.
If you are experiencing pain in your musculoskeletal system, we encourage you to come and see us for a consultation. Our ultrasound facility can help you get the answers you need.
