About Demineralized Bone Matrix
A demineralized bone matrix is an allograft or xenograft bone that has been decalcified as a way to create a product of collagen and growth factors. The sole purpose of a demineralized bone matrix is to help treat damaged bones, and it can be formulated from animal or human sources. At Interventional Orthopedics of Atlanta, Dr. Christopher Williams utilizes donor demineralized bone matrix as a way to promote healing and induce bone formation. As a bone graft substitute or extender, a demineralized bone matrix can treat bone with the help of restorative bone growth factors. To learn more about this innovative treatment option, we invite you to contact our Atlanta, GA facility to schedule an initial consultation. Dr. Williams will evaluate your symptoms and conditions before creating a treatment plan specifically for you and your needs.
"When my hope was dashed by years of severe pain and misdiagnosis and mistreatment, by drs in San Francisco, I met Dr Williams. He diagnosed my problem correctly based on a very inexpensive test and told me what I needed to do and where to go to learn about what I needed to do to get out of pain and back into the world. I’m working sure and steady towards recovery and not there yet but if it weren’t for Dr Williams I don’t know where I would be. I wish that every person in need would meet a Dr like Dr Williams. He is kind and he made the difference for me. His staff are nice and easy to work with."- L.M. / Facebook / Mar 10, 2021
"Great experience across the board! Dr Williams takes the time to listen and explain your situation while giving you the best course of action to treat your condition. Staff & office are top notch and very organized. Highly recommend to anyone that is looking for a safe and effective non-surgical procedure to treat their injuries."- D.S. / Google / Sep 01, 2020
"IO Atlanta is an exceptional experience. Few doctors have the time to talk to you about your condition, answer ALL your questions (and your spouse's questions too), go over your imagery, and explain all the options with real world results. Not only am I a patient, but my wife is also working with Doc Williams to solve a problem she's had for 20+ years. I can't say enough good things about the staff and how everyone is concerned about your individual outcomes. They truly care, and the work they do is cutting edge. I am very glad I have taken this route over conventional surgery and bought more time without permanently changing my body in irreversible ways. The treatment they offer does things just not possible with conventional orthopedic surgery, and using your own body's ability to heal itself by just creating a bit of encouragement is the wave of the future. I have a big Thank You to Doctor Williams and his entire staff at IO Atlanta."- L. / Google / Aug 26, 2020

Patients who are in need of a bone graft but do not have the capability to harvest it from another area of their body may be a good candidate for a demineralized bone matrix. Additionally, when grafting bone, it is important that the donor bone is able to transfer host cells to the graft site. With a demineralized bone matrix, the bone has been carefully processed in order to elevate the bioavailability of the donor bone. Therefore, the graft can have a higher rate of success for restoration and regeneration.
Bone Matrix Treatment
A demineralized bone matrix can be curated from either animal or human sources. During your consultation, Dr. Williams will evaluate if you are a candidate for the bone matrix procedure and determine which source is ideal for you. During the procedure, a small incision may be made within the area being treated and the demineralized bone matrix can be carefully injected into the area. Following your procedure, Dr. Williams will explain the aftercare process and what you can expect during recovery.
What to Expect
After your demineralized bone matrix treatment, you may need to be monitored for some time at our Atlanta, GA facility before you will be able to return home. The amount of time it takes to experience optimal results may vary from patient to patient, but Dr. Williams and his team will let you know what you can expect following the procedure. You will also need to attend follow-up appointments so that your progress can be evaluated and any necessary alterations can be made to your procedure plan. We also encourage you to contact our practice if you have any questions or concerns after your procedure.
