The Texas Orthobiologic Institute was founded by Don Buford, MD, a Board Certified and Sports Medicine Fellowship Trained Orthopedic Surgeon. We provide evidence based regenerative medicine treatments. We believe that patients deserve an expert diagnosis and an unbiased orthopedic evaluation of all nonsurgical, surgical, and orthobiologic options appropriate for their condition so that they may make informed healthcare decisions. We specialize in platelet rich plasma (PRP) and bone marrow derived stem cell injections in the office or with surgery to minimize pain and to support the body’s own healing potential.

The Texas Orthobiologic Institute uses Platelet Rich Plasma and Bone Marrow Concentrate Stem Cell injections to minimize pain and to support and stimulate your body’s natural healing potential.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections
Biologic factors in blood plasma obtained from drawing blood.
PRP can accelerate recovery and promote healing from muscle, tendon, and joint injuries.
PRP can be used to minimize arthritis pain and back pain instead of surgery
PRP can help heal sports injuries or be used with some surgeries to get better results
Bone Marrow Concentrate Injections
BMC contains living cells derived from bone marrow aspirate. These cells produce biologically active things like growth factors and cytokines that help maintain health in our bodies
BMC can support recovery and promote healing from acute and chronic orthopedic injuries.
BMC can minimize pain and symptoms from arthritis.
