Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Kevin Stone is Today’s Honoree

DrStoneDr. Stone has improved the lives of hundreds of patients suffering painful arthritis. He is a pioneer in a arthritis treatment, BioKnee, that allows patients with moderate to severe arthritis to stay active and avoid or delay total knee replacement. BioKnee uses human tissue instead of
artificial parts to regenerate or biologically replace the damaged parts of the knee.

With a biologic, rather than artificial knee replacement, patients can go back to full activity, since there is no artificial material to wear out. This exciting procedure has brought relief for hundreds of people suffering from arthritis.

Dr. Kevin Stone is a pioneering Orthopedic Surgeon and also the chairman of the Stone Research Foundation. He lectures around the world as an expert in cartilage and meniscal growth, replacement, and repair and holds over 40 U.S. patents on novel inventions to improve healthcare.

Dr. Stone was trained at Harvard University in internal medicine and orthopedic surgery and at Stanford University in general surgery. His fellowship was in research at the Hospital for Special Surgery and in knee surgery in Lake Tahoe. He is a physician for Smuin Ballet and has served as a physician for the U.S. Ski Team, the U.S. Pro Ski Tour, the Honda Ski Tour, the Jeep 48 Straight Tour, the Old Blues Rugby Club, Lawrence Pech Dance Company, Marin Ballet, the modern pentathlon at the U.S. Olympic Festival, and for the United States Olympic Training Center.

Dr. Stone enjoys skiing, windsurfing, biking and especially enjoys spending time with his wife and two daughters.
