    Interested in orthobiologics? Have your seen my instagram @dallasstemcell? I bring an orthopedic surgeon’s approach to using orthobiologics like PRP (platelet rich plasma) and bone marrow concentrate (stem cells) . On Instagram, I have videos explaining basic concepts in orthobiologics and detailing how I craft a treatment plan for each patient based on the best evidence for surgery and orthobiologics.

  • You have to always be a student as a doctor!

    I just finished lecturing at a great inaugural meeting focused on sports medicine and nutrition and wellness. The ASPIRE meeting was chaired by Vonda Wright, MD and Mark Sakr, DO. Treating the whole patient is critical for success! Orthobiologics like PRP and stem cells are just two tools in the hands of an orthopedic physician to help patients maintain their health. I spoke about how and why an orthopedic surgeon would use orthobiologics like PRP and bone marrow concentrate (stem cells). The audience questions and panel discussions at these meetings are always so enlightening and allow me to learn as much as I teach!

  • Do Not Have Stem Cell Injections At A Chiropractor Clinic!

    Stem Cell Clinics telling patients that they are delivering placental stem cells or umbilical cord stem cells are scams whether they are run by chiropractors or any other clinician. All should be sued for fraud. All should be investigated by their state medical or chiropractor boards for fraudulent advertising.

  • What imaging tools are important for a regenerative medicine surgeon?

    One of the most important steps in evaluating patients prior to making treatment recommendations is to use some form of imaging to see what the problem is. Along with a thorough history and physical exam, and special tests like blood work or neurologic tests, imaging adds another bit of information to help diagnose the source of the problem. One of my favorite imaging tools is this unique Trice Medical Mi-Ultra tablet. It looks like a tablet but it actually combines an ultrasound machine AND and a disposable in office diagnostic arthroscope! It is the only tablet that allows me to see both inside and outside the joint.

  • Knee Pain? Let’s put the knee replacement on the “back burner” or forget about it completely!

    Our patient has now had 2 good years with minimal knee pain after being told she needed a total knee replacement! All from a single injection of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) made from her own blood in the office. She now wants the other knee done :). Who wouldn’t!

  • Why bone marrow concentrate is the best regulatory compliant orthobiologic in the USA

    I just gave this lecture at the 2019 Interventional Orthopedics Foundation Annual Meeting. At the Dallas PRP and Stem Cell Institute we only use your own bone marrow as the source for stem cell procedures. Anything out of a bottle is either not legal or a scam so avoid those providers at all costs.

  • We use bone marrow derived Stem Cells or PRP(platelet rich plasma) for elbow conditions like tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, ulnar collateral ligament tears

    Here is another example of how we analyze and document every single PRP injection in the office so that we can develop dosing criteria for specific orthopedic applications. Two weeks ago this young baseball athlete had a BMC (bone marrow derived stem cell) injection for a partial ulnar collateral ligament tear.

    My recent Regenerative Medicine podcast with Dr. Andrew Dold is now available! Dr. Dold is an orthopedic surgeon who has a sports medicine podcast just started on iTunes and Soundcloud.

In this episode 2 Dr. Dold and I talk about the growing use of orthobiologics in sports medicine to help patients recover from injuries with or without surgery. Have a listen! We are always trying to improve upon surgical and nonsurgical outcomes by augmenting our own native healing processes with orthobiologics.

  • Want to get off of narcotics? Consider Orthobiologics

    One of our best options to fight the opioid epidemic (in orthopedics) is with orthobiologics. At the Dallas PRP and Stem Cell Institute we use platelet rich plasma and bone marrow derived stem cells for patients with chronic, painful orthopedic conditions like osteoarthritis.
