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.
