We recently concluded our second annual The Orthobiologic Institute (TOBI) Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) symposium, hosted & moderated by Dr Steven Sampson at the Orthohealing Center . This years event was incredibly exciting with appx 40 visiting Physicians from 9 different countries.
The lectures were phenominal with physicians presenting their data on elite athletes & on non-athletic patients suffering with joint arthritis. The two day event featured hands on ultrasound workstations in small groups.
It was an excellent opportunity for like minded physicians to network & collaborate on projects in the future. In summary many sudies will emerge on PRP, and many appear highly favorable. Without a doubt some studies will not be positive & will only help us refine the indications for PRP & it’s role as a treatment option. The shortcomings that we see with PRP will only drive us to find other natural based therapies in regenerative medicine to accelerate healing using new technology & maxinizing the body’s natural ability to heal.
