It involves using a small camera (arthroscope) to view and operate inside the joint through tiny incisions. Dr. Gelber performs procedures like rotator cuff repair, cartilage restoration, and meniscus debridement using extremely small incisions to address the root cause of joint pain with minimal scarring, allowing you to return to your daily activities quickly. Arthroscopic surgery is a last resort after all other options have been exhausted.

Therapeutic Injections

Cortisone injections are a common medical treatment used to alleviate inflammation and pain in various conditions. These injections deliver corticosteroids directly into the affected area, reducing inflammation and providing relief from discomfort. They are particularly effective for conditions such as arthritis, tendonitis, and bursitis. Cortisone injections typically provide rapid relief and are a valuable tool for managing acute pain and inflammation. However, their effects are temporary, and repeated injections may be necessary for long-term management. It’s essential to discuss potential risks and benefits with your healthcare provider before undergoing cortisone injections.


Viscosupplementation is a medical procedure designed to treat osteoarthritis, particularly in the knee joint. It involves injecting a thick, gel-like substance called hyaluronic acid into the joint space. This substance acts as a lubricant and shock absorber, helping to reduce pain and improve joint function. In resolving these conditions with Orthopedics in Burbank, Viscosupplementation is often recommended when other treatments like physical therapy and pain medications have proven insufficient. While it can provide relief for some patients, the effectiveness varies, and it may require multiple injections over time. Discuss the potential benefits and limitations of viscosupplementation with your healthcare provider to determine if it’s the right option for you.


Platelet-Rich Plasma

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a regenerative medical treatment that taps into the body’s natural healing abilities. It involves extracting a small amount of your blood, processing it to concentrate the platelets, which contain growth factors, and then injecting this PRP into the injured or damaged area. The growth factors in PRP help stimulate tissue repair and regeneration. PRP therapy is a non-surgical approach that harnesses your body’s own resources to promote healing, making it a safe and effective option for various conditions, from tendon injuries to hair loss.


Stem Cell Injections

Stem cell injections are another regenerative medicine technique that is an essential solution in Orthopedics in Burbank. Stem cell injections are aimed directly at harnessing the body’s healing potential. This treatment involves the extraction of stem cells from your own body or from other sources, such as bone marrow or adipose tissue, and then injecting them into damaged tissues or joints. Stem cells have the unique ability to transform into different cell types and promote tissue repair. This innovative approach is non-surgical and offers promising results in addressing a range of conditions, including joint degeneration, soft tissue injuries, and chronic pain, by supporting the body’s natural healing mechanisms.
