Additionally, Stone developed The Stone Research Foundation, an independent, 501(c)3 non-profit research institute pioneering regenerative orthopaedic treatments to stimulate the body’s own healing properties to reduce the suffering of sports injuries and arthritis. Arthritis is a silent, insidious, and painful joint disorder that ruins many lives. In the United States, it’s the most common cause of disability. Around 50 million adults in the US have some form of arthritis. By 2030, an estimated 67 million American adults are projected to have physician-diagnosed arthritis. The mission of the foundation is to pioneer new orthopaedic treatments that accelerate healing, enabling people to stay active through research, development, innovation and education.
