The Stone Clinic Symptom Checker

The Stone Clinic Symptom Checker

If you’re not sure what might be wrong with your joint, our self diagnosis tool  for the knee, shoulder and ankle is a good place to start. It won’t replace a real doctor and cannot give a definitive diagnosis but it may help you better understand your symptoms.

Meniscus Transplant Center

The Stone Clinic runs one of the few centers in the world dedicated to the diagnosis, surgical implantation and rehabilitation of meniscus transplant patients. 

The Meniscus Transplant Center offers: 

  • World-class surgical facilities
  • Onsite physical therapy
  • Tissue acquisition 
  • Measured outcomes

Biologic treatments

We believe in the power of the human body to heal itself. In this new “anabolic” era of joint repair, we are able to harness and augment natural healing and combine it with advanced medical technologies to repair orthopedic injuries. We use stem cell techniques and offer Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections. Learn more about how biologic treatments work and how we can rebuild joints using donor tissue.

Fighting arthritis

We are changing the treatment paradigm for osteoarthritis. No longer is it acceptable to be told to stop your activities, take anti-inflammatories and wait until your arthritis has progressed until it warrants a joint replacement. There are ways to fix it.

Video library

Our many videos allow you learn more about how our surgical and rehabilitative techniques will work to heal you. Also hear from other patients about how our treatments have helped them.

Fix a meniscus to avoid arthritis
A recent study suggested that meniscus surgery doesn't help. Studies can be misleading. Even small losses of meniscus tissue lead to big changes in force concentration on the tibia (shin bone) and eventually arthritis.
Data everywhere, and nowhere to hide. In the bad old days, you got injured, and you didn’t tell anyone. You usually recovered. Lived to play another day. Until you couldn’t. Today, you get injured; you could be monitored, measured, uploaded and reported to everyone. You might not be allowed to play. You are “protected”, maybe even blacklisted. Which scenario is better?
If you want to be treated with a better than 75% chance of success—and if you value excellence as much as kindness—I suggest you demand that creativity be part of the doctor’s repertoire.
