Kevin Stone's clinic treats joint injury using the latest in bio-medicine: reconstructing damaged tissue, even replacing whole joint parts, with lab-grown cartilage and ligament.
Orthopedic surgeon Kevin Stone knows mobility means more than just where you go -- it's the foundation for a fulfilling daily life. (True whether you're an athlete or not.) His Stone Clinic specializes in "biologic knee replacement": replacing damaged joint parts, not with artificial components, but with lab-grown tissue and parts from human donors. He and team are spearheading new techniques that use animal tissue but avoid the complications associated with animal-to-human transplantations.
Stone has consulted publications such as The Wall Street Journal and Newsweek as a medical expert; he has contributed to TV programs such as ESPN's "Treating Athletes in the New Millennium" and The Discovery Channel.
"We can re-grow these surfaces biologically. Why isn't that good enough? There's not enough donor cycles. ... The solution is animal tissue."Kevin Stone
