In this 8 minute training video, Don Buford, MD demonstrates the flexibility of the Trice Medical dynamic imaging tablet based platform that includes a fu based ultrasound and a single stick disposable needle arthroscope that can be used for diagnostic arthroscopy under local anesthesia at any location. The Mi-Ultra is a full featured ultrasound unit. The mi-eye2 is the only single stick disposable needle arthroscope on the market…..with no need for additional cannulas. Both imaging modalities are available and interchangeable on a single tablet!
The Dallas PRP and Stem Cell Institute will soon be changing names to reflect the expansion of orthobiologic services available at the clinic.
A regenerative medicine doctor (Dr. Charles Lee) recently asked the CBER division of the FDA if Wharton’s Jelly products were being correctly regulated and sold for use in humans. Guess what? The FDA said “NO”. All allograft stem cell Wharton’s Jelly products currently on the market in the USA are being sold in violation of FDA regulations. Avoid any company and ALL doctors and clinics selling this stuff. On top of it all….there is no science that it even works for human orthopedic conditions anyway. This is why we only use bone marrow derived stem cells from your own body.
The Texas Orthobiologic Institute’s next free Regenerative Medicine seminar will be Thursday night, August 29th from 7pm – 8pm at our office location at 1015 N. Carroll, #2000, Dallas, TX 75204.
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
