Treating orthopedic conditions, including sports injuries and arthritis, with regenerative therapies such as Stem Cell Therapy and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is becoming more mainstream.
Peyton Manning reportedly traveled to Europe in 2011 for stem-cell therapy to treat a neck injury while playing for the Colts (Manning has not publicly acknowledged this). Andrew Luck also reportedly received PRP and stem cell therapy in 2015 to treat a shoulder injury. The truth is, that stem cell therapy has been widely used by elite athletes for quite some time. Hundreds of NFL players have been treated with stem cell therapy as reported in Sports Illustrated. The magazine noted on how running back Chris Johnson was treated with stem cells from his bone marrow to rebuild his cartilage after a knee injury.

Tri-State Orthopaedics recently celebrated the career of Dr. James M. Heinrich and the many years of devotion to his patients. Dr. Heinrich has been with Tri-State since January 1978 specializing in joint replacement, arthroscopy of the knee and shoulder, and ACL reconstruction. The relationship side to medicine is what gave Dr. Heinrich a profound sense of satisfaction. He always approached the field of medicine with a patient-centered mindset. In his words, “My promise to my patients is to treat them as I would want to be treated or as I would treat a member of my family.” The patients and staff cannot thank Dr. Heinrich enough for his 40 plus years dedicated to TSOS.
On behalf of the Tri-State family, we wish Dr. Heinrich a very happy retirement. We will miss you dearly!
