UKA to assemble top doctors in London to discuss PRP Platelet Rich Plasma use in elite athletes
On Nov 26, 2009 pioneering physicians from around the world will meet in London to form a consensus statement on the use of complex growth factors to treat muscle & tendon injuries. The UKA or United Kingdom Athletics is the national governing body for athletics, including the Olympics & Paralympics.
Dr Steven Sampson was invited to participate to share clinical experience with PRP. After the symposium, hopefully a consensus statement will be published. PRP has seen increased use in professional sport. Having meetings like this is paramount to advance our understanding of the potential role for growth factors & biologics in sport.
