Our colleague from Argentina, Dr Gerardo Marcelo Nunez recently attended the 9th Middle East Orthopedic Conference in Dubai.
Cutting edge research was presented on PRP Platelet Rich Plasma for knee osteoarthritis. The Orthohealing Center’s pilot trial was referenced multiple times at the conference, serving as a platform for larger clinical trials that are now emerging. A worldwide collaboration is occurring as physicians are recognizing the need for more innovative and cost effective treatments as alternatives to surgery. Further research ius needed to best determine who may be an ideal candidate for PRP or BMC injection therapy.
