Alternative Treatment Option for Chronic Bone Pain

What if you could delay a total knee replacement or other invasive procedure?

Did you know that chronic bone pain could be due to stress fractures? Small cracks in the bone, known as insufficiency fractures, are located below the surface and can cause significant pain. When these fractures do not heal on their own, they become chronic and require treatment. One of Anika’s regenerative solutions, enhanced by hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the human body, is designed to fill insufficiency fractures and promote new bone growth and healing, allowing many patients to resume their active lifestyles with minimal surgical intervention.

Tactoset Injectable Bone Substitute

Tactoset® Injectable Bone Substitute is a synthetic, biocompatible calcium phosphate and hyaluronic acid-enhanced bone repair therapy that is easily injected through minimally invasive surgery. It can be injected directly into the cracks in the bone, and after injection, it hardens and mimics the properties of the natural bone, effectively treating the fracture. During the healing process, Tactoset is resorbed by the body and replaced by the growth of new, healthy bone.

When receiving a Tactoset injection, patients are typically treated in an outpatient or ambulatory surgery center (ASC) setting and return home the same day, unlike more invasive procedures, such as total joint replacement. Many patients are also able to get back to activity much sooner and usually don’t need crutches past the fifth post-operative day. They are also able to weight-bear as tolerated and as guided by their orthopedic surgeon.

Patient Benefits

  • A minimally invasive surgery option

If you are living with chronic pain, it may be caused by an insufficiency fracture. Talk to your doctor about Tactoset as an option to delay a more invasive procedure such as a total knee replacement.
