Guest Biography

Dr. Otten specializes in stem cell therapies that help people recover from injuries. Dr. Otten is Director of Orthopedics & Orthobiologics at Cellaxys. Cellaxys carries out revolutionary non-invasive procedures to treat orthopedic and spine injuries, arthritis and degenerative conditions. 

Dr. Matthew HC Otten, Director of Orthopedics & Orthobiologics at Cellaxys, moved into sports medicine with a fellowship at Beaumont Hospital in Detroit after completing cardiology research with Harvard University and UCSF. During this fellowship, he treated Division I college athletes, as well as members of the NFL’s Detroit Lions, for injuries that occurred during training and competitions.

In recent years, the preferred treatment for sports injuries came in the form of cortisone. The primary benefit of cortisone is that its injections can offer fast-acting relief of inflamed muscles, joints, tendons, and bursa. An unfortunate side effect of cortisone; however, is how it breaks down tissues, rather than healing them. In short, cortisone treatment treats the pain, but not its fundamental causes.

He is Board-certified in Sports Medicine. After completing cardiology research at Harvard University and UCSF, he obtained a medical degree from Michigan State University.
