Dr Steven Sampson was recently invited to visit Dr David Karli who trained at Harvard University & currently works at the renowned Steadman Clinic in Vail Colorado. Dr Karli is one of the pioneers in regenerative medicine and has been performing BMC on knee and hip osteoarthritis for nearly 2 years with encouraging results. Interestingly, many of the surgeries there routinely include PRP intra-operatively to expedite recovery & healing. This biologic approach to surgery will likely spread across the country as more awareness catches on. Both doctors shared protocols & ideas about the future of biologic medicine in orthopedics and sports medicine. Meetings like this advance our understanding of biologics and grows the community of enthusiastic physicians unsatisfied with the limited options presently available for joint pain and cartilage disorders. Dr Karli will be lecturing at Dr Sampson’s annual event in Los Angeles, The Orthobiologic Institute’s 4th annual prp & regenerative medicine symposium with cadaver lab, June 7-8, 2013.
