CSMO utilizes OrthoBiologics technology to create living, functional tissues to replace or repair tissue that has been lost due to damage, disease, or hereditary defects. For those struggling with limited mobility due to arthritis, injury, tendinopathy (disease of the tendons), or other forms of musculoskeletal inflammation, patients may be able to experience relief and avoid surgery by harnessing the healing potential of their own cells.
