If you have suffered from muscular or joint pain and have been failed by traditional orthopedic medicine, the specialists at DiCesare Orthopedic Medicine can help. We believe in the power of regenerative medicine, which is a branch of medicine involving the regeneration of human cells and tissue.
The dedicated team at DiCesare Orthopedic Medicine is headed by an osteopathically trained, board-certified sports medicine physician, who has been offering non-surgical treatments to the Greensburg area for the last decade. Known as “The Gentle Injector,” he has earned a reputation among patients for delivering joint injections in a way that minimizes pain and discomfort. He has also lectured on a national level about joint injection, and instructed other physicians world-wide on his injection techniques.

What is so impressive about stem cells is that they have the power to duplicate and become different types of cells. Scientific research has indicated that patients suffering from severe arthritis, as well as younger patients with mild osteoarthritis, can all benefit from stem cell therapy.
Advocates of stem cell injections theorize that when stem cells are placed into a certain location in the body, they can adapt to a specific function. For example, a stem cell can turn into a cartilage cell, creating more cartilage tissue in a patient that has cartilage damage.
Patients at DiCesare Orthopedic Medicine have the privilege of enjoying this incredible, cutting-edge treatment. Dr. DiCesare is extensively experienced in administering stem cell injections for arthritis, as well for other chronic/acute musculoskeletal injuries and illnesses.
Prolotherapy is an innovative treatment that uses concentrated dextrose (a form of sugar) that is injected through a small needle into a tendon, ligament, or joint. The concentrated dextrose, known as a "proliferant solution," stimulates the tissue healing process. This can tighten loose ligaments and tendons, reduce physical stress on nerves, and improve pain and function.
While it is most commonly used for the back, prolotherapy is also effective in the following areas of the body:
Dr. Dicesare is highly experienced administering prolotherapy to patients of all ages and backgrounds.

Regenerative medicine is the practice of regenerating damaged human cells and tissues to restore normal function. It works by stimulating the body’s own repair processes, prompting it to heal from within. One of the most popular examples of regenerative medicine is stem cell therapy.
Joint injections are simply injections made by an orthopedic specialist into an affected joint to reduce pain and inflammation. They work by reducing blood flow, and contain an anesthetic as well as a corticosteroid. Patients typically feel immediate pain relief after receiving a joint injection, and see a decrease in their inflammation.
There are numerous benefits of joint injections, including:
If you have struggled to find adequate, long-term relief from arthritis, a work injury, or any other musculoskeletal condition, you may be qualified for joint injection therapy.
