Joint Preservation Treatments
Maintaining mobility is highly dependent on joint function. Joint deterioration is a common cause of reduced mobility, especially as you get older. Joint preservation treatments utilize cutting-edge medical techniques and technology to reduce wear and tear on the joints from inflammation, friction, injury and lost cartilage. Jonathan Glashow, MD, Orthopedic Surgery & Sports Medicine offers advanced joint preservation treatments at our first-in-class medical facility on NYC’s Upper East Side.

In fact, it can cause inflammation that results in faster deterioration of the existing cartilage. Preserving the cushion and cartilage between the bones in joints can reduce friction, inflammation and pain. At Jonathan Glashow, MD, Orthopedic Surgery & Sports Medicine, we offer joint preservation treatments that can slow down the loss of cartilage and improve joint function for less pain and better function for patients.
