The Orthobiologic Institute (TOBI) recently completed it’s 1st ever training seminar for platelet rich plasma therapy under ultrasound guidance in Los Angeles Ca Aug 13-14, 2010. It’s very important that a standard of excellence is maintained with this procedure so that outcomes are maximized & data is accurately obtained.
Over 30 Dr’s from around the world attended. Guest lecturers represented many countries & provided insight into their particular clinical work and data with PRP and regenerative medicine. There were hands on workshops to advance ultrasound skills. Day 2 featured live injection demonstrations at the orthohealing center.
There has been an overwhelming demand for further courses to encourage the exchange of dialogue & experience to provide better patient care. Interestingly patients are driving this change, asking their physicians to offer this new realm of treatment.
