Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a portion of your blood with high levels of platelets, which contain many important growth factors. Patients experiencing chronic tendon injuries who have experienced pain for more than three months and have tried conservative treatments (rest, bracing, medications, physical therapy) may consider PRP injections. Examples of chronic tendon injuries include lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow), medial epicondylitis (golfer's elbow), patellar tendinitis, Achilles tendonitis, and plantar fasciitis.
Stem cell injections have had a recent and growing rise in popularity in the field of orthopaedics. Patients seek out this form of treatment as a means to decrease pain, improve function, and prolong the time before needing surgery. Physicians at Orthopaedic Associates of Wisconsin (OAW) have taken a cautious approach to offering stem cell injections to our patients. Let’s take a closer look as to why.
Orthopaedic Associates of Wisconsin’s physicians are experts at diagnosing, evaluating, and treating work-related injuries.

An MRI scan is often helpful for diagnosing orthopaedic conditions. Though the process requires elaborate technology, the patient experience is painless and noninvasive. Orthopaedic Associates of Wisconsin provides MRI services at our Pewaukee location. We utilize the most up-to-date technology along with friendly personnel to make the procedure efficient and comfortable.
Tenex Health TX is a minimally invasive treatment designed to address chronic tendon pain. It is designed to remove the source of the pain, just like open surgery, in a minimally invasive manner. It requires only local anesthetic and only a small adhesive bandage is used to aid healing - no stitches or sutures are required.
Our goal is to make your surgical procedure positive, safe and as comfortable as possible. That’s why our anesthesiologists-through consultation and expertise-work with you to determine the best protocol based on your health, procedure, and lifestyle. Anesthesia falls into three main categories. Though best practices for each procedure typically inform the type of anesthesia we use, we do take patient preferences into consideration when possible.
