Regenerative Orthopedics and Stem Cell Therapy

Understanding Athletes

Dr. Albano is an internationally respected Doctor of Orthopedic Medicine, who began his career in the United States Air Force as a flight doctor, keeping the Air Force’s top pilots flying. His advice and treatments are routinely sought by Olympic-level athletes and their coaches from around the world and he serves as the team doctor for Real Salt Lake and the Westminster College Griffins. For more than 15 years, Dr. Albano has developed techniques to apply regenerative medicine that employ state-of-the-art imaging and ultrasound technologies, targeting injuries with exacting precision to achieve optimal results. An endurance athlete himself, Dr. Albano understands how devastating injury can be. His passion is providing hope for patients who live active, health lifestyles and helping them get back to peak condition.

Certified. Proven. Trusted.

Dr. Joseph Albano inspires confidence among world-class athletes and coaches and is recognized throughout the professional and collegiate sports worlds as a trusted ally in combatting injury.  Drawing on more than four decades of medical training and world-stage-level experience, he designed the Albano Clinic to give active adults access to the same level of care that world-class athletes count on.  Alberto Salazar (world-reknown coach for the Nike Oregon Project and winner of 3 consecutive NY City Marathons) and Galen Rupp (American Record holder at multiple distances, silver medalist at the 2012 London Olympics in the 10,000m and bronze medalist in the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics marathon) are just two of those who do.

Dr. Albano started learning Musculoskeletal Ultrasound (MSK US) in 2006 and cellular injections just after that.  He has been teaching MSK US, Platelet Rich Plasma and stem cell injections (including fat, bone marrow and other sources) at national conferences since 2008.  When other physicians have a difficult case, they contact him.
