The Center for Orthopedics and Sports Medicine
Dr. Fox has been providing quality Orthopedic care for his patients in Ocean & Monmouth Counties since 1989. Dr. Fox is a board certified, fellowship trained orthopedic surgeon.
We specialize in all aspects of Sports Medicine and Orthopedic Surgery and are located in both Ocean and Monmouth counties.
Alternatives to Knee Replacement Surgery
Dr. Fox understands that total knee replacement surgery is not indicated in certain circumstances nor desirable to the patient. He performs many minimally invasive alternatives to total knee replacement surgery.
For instance, the doctors at The Center For Orthopedics and Sports Medicine (COSM) perform PRP and Stem Cell Procedures
that stimulate and enhance healing of bone and soft tissue injuries, such as tendons and ligiments. These procedures, which we commonly perform on athletes, enhance healing and are an alternative to surgery. The American Academy of Othopedic Surgery (AAOS) named this as the hottest topic in orthopedics.
COSM is one of the top stem cell procedure practices in Ocean and Monmouth Counties. We are the only practice that will perform these stem cell procedures with no payment from the patient in most cases (most patients qualify).
Dr. Fox performs the Tenex procedures for all forms of tendonitis. This is a minimally invasive non-surgical approach to eliminate scar tissue and regenerative tendons which is a source of chronic pain in joints such as elbows (including tennis elbow), shoulders, knees, as well as Achilles tendon and plantar facia. This is an ultrasound-guided procedure as well.
The doctors at COSM also perform Viscoelastic Supplementation/Hyaluronic acid injections for arthritis. These injections offer both is a lubrication and shock obsorption for the knee and are an excellent alternative to surgery.
