Mitchell Sheinkop, M.D. is a board certified orthopedic surgeon and a leading authority on the treatment of patients with complex hip and knee disorders, and is well known for his pioneering use of computer-assisted navigation, minimally-invasive technologies and hip resurfacing techniques. He is a professor emeritus in the Department of Orthopedics at Rush University and an active lecturer and educator.
Dr Sheinkop is leading an IRB register clinical trial utilizing BMC Bone Marrow Concentrate for the treatment of hip and knee osteoarthritis.
We believe that treatments like BMC may fill the large void needed in younger active individuals that are not ready for total joint replacement. Following biologic therapies like PRP, the door has opened for more sophisticated cell based therapies offering hope to address this epidemic of increased osteoarthritis in our community.
At the Orthohealing Center of Los Angeles CA we are providing BMC Bone marrow concentration injections combines with PRP for more challenging cases of arthritis with very encouraging results, however more studies much like Dr Sheinkop’s work are needed.
Our global TOBI The Orthobiologic Institute’s annual meeting this June 2013 will host leading pioneering physicians & researchers like Dr Sheinkop to further our field in regenerative medicine.
Dr Sheinkop has a terrific blog that we encourage our readers to follow: www.sheinkopmd.com/
His story is interesting after specializing in total joint replacements for decades, Mitchell is now pioneering work in the non-surgical realm.
