The Dallas PRP and Stem Cell Institute/Texas Orthobiologic Institute “Know Series” Video #9. In this short video clip Don Buford, MD answers a surprisingly common question asked by patients…..”Will my knee xrays get better after a stem cell injection” As it turns out, there are many “stem cell” clinics running stem cell seminars at which patients are told that their cartilage will completely regenerate and that their X-rays will get better. This is not proven by any published study in orthopedics and patients should not be told this as a sales ploy.
TOBI is one of the world’s largest orthobiologic meetings attended by doctors from around the world. Dr. Buford is a frequent lecturer and instructor at TOBI and will be there once again June 6-8, 2019!
The “Know Series” Video #6 If a clinic is doing a study does that make stem cell procedures legal? NO
Many unscrupulous regenerative medicine clinics are telling patients that because their clinic is doing a “study”, or sometimes an “IRB study”, their procedures are allowed by the FDA. This is simply not true. Many orthobiologics are regulated by the FDA and if there are claims of stem cells in the product, then the FDA definitely is involved.
In this short video clip Don Buford, MD answers a surprisingly common question asked by patients…..”Do I need special massages to make these injections more effective?” As it turns out, there are several local DFW “stem cell” clinics running stem cell seminars at which patients are sold a package that includes massages “….to help regenerate the joint after the injection”
One of the most common questions I get in clinic from prospective patients is about the post procedure rehab and the recovery process. Many patients come to see me because they have been told that their next option is surgery with significant time off of work and other family and recreational activities. Naturally, they want to know how much down time is involved with orthobiologic injections if they are a candidate. The good news? For virtually every clinical condition I treat, the “downtime” after an orthobiologic injection is measured in days instead of weeks or months like it usually is after a surgical procedure
The FDA just won a summary judgement against adipose tissue clinics under the umbrella of US Stem Cell
A federal court just affirmed the FDA’s claims and injunction against against US Stem Cell and two of its employees/principals.
The TOBI 2019 Regenerative Medicine Course is underway in Chicago!
I had the opportunity to give the first talk on Bone Marrow Aspirate and Concentrate Basic Science.
This video was done immediately after she received a bone marrow aspiration in the office and a concentrated stem cell injection into both hips and both knees to help minimize her joint pains from arthritis. She did great thru the procedure and danced out of the office as you can see. By doing these procedures with ultrasound guidance and local anesthesia, I can save patients thousands of dollars and lots of time when they want a bone marrow derived stem cell injection.
Another Organization Selling Amniotic Fluid and Umbilical Cord Blood As A Stem Cell Injection Is Getting Shut Down By The FDA
Goodbye and good riddance to the R3 Stem Cell Chain of over 45 affiliated clinics who were taking advantage of people in pain and with debilitating conditions by selling them stem cell injections that were not properly registered and that were not even stem cell injections in the first place.
