Regenerative Medicine

The field of non-surgical orthopaedic and sports medicine is reshaping itself with a regenerative medicine approach. The Cody Regional Health Orthopaedic specialists offer stem cell and platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapies that successfully treat bone, muscle, joint and soft tissue injuries with regenerative solutions. Cody Regional Health patients can now benefit from a treatment called platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) injections. This non-surgical treatment can help in reducing pain and provide long-term relief from muscle injuries such as hamstring tears, ligament sprains and chronic tendinitis.

PRP injections use your own body or donated natural growth factors to prompt healing and alleviate pain. Stem cell use in medicine has also grown tremendously over the past decade. Every joint in the body and most tissues contain stem cells that are responsible for maintaining health in that location. Degeneration of tissues or joints occur when the stem cell population becomes depleted and that structure loses its ability to heal itself because of injury or the natural aging process. Stem cell therapy is an attempt to repopulate tissues or joints with the stem cells thereby restoring the body’s ability to heal itself. Stem cell therapy is now available through the Cody Regional Health Orthopaedic Specialist practice.

Our goal is to provide minimally invasive treatments within our office along with regenerative techniques to target your body’s natural healing ability.

  • "ER department went to great lengths to make this "out of towner" feel comfortable. Dr. Polley and Nurse Sarah were very professional and had a great bedside manner. It was my worst asthma attack and I felt very confident that I was getting top notch care."

  • "Had to bring my daughter for a shoulder injury, on July 4th. I was thoroughly impressed. The staff was absolutely great, very friendly and compassionate. They took great care of my daughter and explained the diagnosis and discharge orders with great detail. I only wish our ER back home could be this professional. I know this is a smaller town and more tight knit, but this hospital/ER could set an example for the rest of the country. Thanks to the staff, physician and PA for the excellent care."

  • "I was a walk in patient on 5/29/18. I had been sick for several days while on a month long motorhome trip. The reception staff was friendly and efficient. I was seen quickly by the PA on duty, Robert Lang. He listened to me, did an exam, diagnosed my illness as acute bronchitis, and prescribed the necessary medication. I was feeling better in just a few days which enabled me to enjoy the remainder of my trip. I was sick and a long way from home so I really appreciated the excellent and friendly care that I received."
