What's New and Innovative?
Introducing the new AlterG

Capital Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine is excited to bring the new AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill to Central Iowa.

Alter G


The AlterG Treadmill is the world's first and only treadmill using NASA based anti-gravity technology and has been installed to help provide patients the opportunity to experience rehab or training without pain, even while you are still recovering from surgery or an injury.

Watch as Molly Nelson from KCCI trys the Alter G.

New treatment, new knee?

Autologous chondrocyte implantation is a new treatment that repairs damages in articular cartilage. ACI provides pain relief while at the same time slowing down the progression or considerably delaying partial or total joint replacement (knee replacement) surgery. The goal of ACI is to allow people suffering from articular cartilage damage to return to their old lifestyle; regaining mobility, going back to work and even practicing sports again.

TorresOlympic swimmer Dara Torres had the procedure done on her knee last year and is on track to compete in the London Olympics in 2012.

This cutting edge procedure is being done right here in Des Moines by Dr. Bill Jacobson. For more information on this type of procedure and to see if it might help ease your knee pain contact Dr. Jacobson at Capital Orthorpaedics & Sports Medicine 440-2676.
