Orthohealing Center doctors Mary Ambach & Steven Sampson collaborate with research team from Brazil to publish new study on Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) combined with Hyaluronic Acid Injection (HA) for Knee Osteoarthritis.
Dr Ambach and Dr Sampson collaborated with the doctors from one of the best universities in Brazil and Latin America, University of Campinas in São Paulo , for this important study on biologic treatments for knee osteoarthritis. The study showed that autologous (obtained from the same individual) PRP and HA are safe and effective treatment of mild to moderate knee osteoarthritis. It also showed that the combination of HA and PRP resulted in less pain and more function than HA alone and allowed for earlier physical activity in the 1st 90 days compared to PRP alone.
Dr. Mary Ambach was an international guest speaker at ORTHOREGEN 2016, an international conference on stem cells and cell therapy in São Paulo, Brazil. She talked about the use of stem cells in knee joint arthritis, low back disc bulge and degeneration, rotator cuff tear and tennis elbow.
