While we are using cutting edge technology like musculoskeletal ultrasound to diagnose orthopedic injuries & guide PRP injections, Physicians used this equipment to save lives in Haiti. Through generous donations by Sonosite, Emergency Doctors & Anesthesiologists visited Haiti & treated patients with severe injuries.
NPRrecently featured PRP discussing it’s use in orthopedics & sports medicine. Interestingly via professional athletes, the community is learning more about emerging therapies that are driving change in medicine. Hopefully indirectly the increased awareness of PRP use in professional sports will promote further studies so that more patients at home can benefit as well.
