Innovators in Research

The Orthopedic Stem Cell Institute is a research and treatment facility in Johnstown, Colorado. It was founded by Dr. Kenneth Pettine, an extremely skilled, world renowned, spine surgeon who employs the latest concepts, developments, and therapies for innovative techniques using the body’s natural healing resources. Dr. Pettine is a pioneer in spinal and joint stem cell therapies and has created the Orthopedic Stem Cell Institute for his patients seeking a possible alternative to surgical procedures. We offer two revolutionary therapies; Self-Derived Stem Cells and Platelet Rich Plasma. Dr. Pettine and his team of experts treat patients from around the world, using the newest and most advanced technology to treat orthopedic injuries in the spine, knees, hips, shoulders, feet and ankles, and other joints. Our adult stem cell therapies utilize adult mesenchymal, multipotent stem cells, taken from a patient’s own bone marrow concentrate, which is then directly injected into the area of damage on the patient. Our facility has years of data supporting the positive attributes that stem cell therapies provide. Please contact us today for more information!
