Bone and Tissue Transplantation
In orthopedics, some forms of reconstructive trauma require a bone or tissue transplant. These transplants can be an autograft from the patient’s own body or an allograft from another patient who chooses to donate. Bone and tissue transplants, or grafts, work for many types of musculoskeletal injuries and disorders. Depending on the type of transplant, Dr. Burke finds the healthiest option for his patients. The graft adjusts to the body and refills the missing bone or tissue. Tissue transplantations with Dr. Burke Orthopedics work for injuries to the muscles, ligaments or tendons anywhere in the body. In most cases, grafts repair injuries to the back, hips, knees or other joints.
