The Texas Orthobiologics Institute believes 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 will always use the best evidence based orthobiologics and orthopedic surgery to minimize pain and to support the body’s own healing potential.  We want to help our patients using the safest, most successful, least invasive, and most cost effective means possible!
The Texas Orthobiologics Institute was founded by Don Buford, MD, a Board Certified and Sports Medicine Fellowship Trained Orthopedic Surgeon.  Dr. Buford is the 2021 President of the Interventional Orthobiologics Foundation, a US based nonprofit organization that sponsors structured fellowship level training in orthobiologics.


The Texas Orthobiologics Institute uses Platelet Rich Plasma and Bone Marrow Concentrate cellular based 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. Our bone marrow contains biologically active things like growth factors and cytokines that help maintain health in our bodies and that can be harnessed in orthobiologic procedures
  • BMC can support recovery and promote healing from acute and chronic orthopedic injuries.
  • BMC can minimize pain and symptoms from arthritis.
