  • Shoulder Pain From Impingement? Try Orthobiologics Before Surgery

    Here is another example of how we use Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) in an orthopedic surgery practice to minimize the need for surgery. Our patient had shoulder impingement and pain for 2-3 months before seeing us. We put him on a rehab program and did a subacromial steroid injection. Unfortunately that did not work over the next 4-6 weeks. Traditionally, he would now be considered for a subacromial decompression…an arthroscopic surgical procedure that requires some rehab and “downtime” to recover. Instead, were did a subacromial PRP injection, using his own blood in a 30 minute ultrasound guided office procedure, and within the next 2 months he was pain free.

  • What About Exosomes In Orthopedics?

    What about exosomes as an “off the shelf” orthobiologic therapy?
    Today I received 4 email inquiries about exosomes.
    How much human outcomes data there is on the efficacy of exosomes in orthopedics? …not much at all. Exosomes are produced locally in response to the specific environment…ie. if a joint is inflammed, the exosomes being produced may have an anti-inflammatory nature overall.

  • Orthobiologics for Hip Arthritis, Labral Tears, and sometimes instead of hip surgery!!

    Hip Pain? Here is yet another patient testimonial for an orthobiologic instead of steroid or surgery. She is 2 months s/p PRP injection for labral tears in both hips. She had not improved from an “umbilical cord blood/placental tissue” injection a year before. 2.5 minute clip…. Results are becoming more predictable for this application at our clinic!

  • Who thinks cement is better than bone marrow?

    I recently received a “Cease and Desist” letter from the attorneys for Zimmer because I used the term “subchondroplasty” in a lecture presentation and on Dallas PRP and Stem Cell’s web site . Zimmer has a trademark on the term “subchondroplasty” which they market as a specific procedure where bone cement is put into a bone lesion…it is not a regenerative medicine procedure and obviously a non-anatomic procedure.

  • Keeping up with the shoulder surgery world!

    This will be my 19th year in a row teaching at the San Diego Shoulder Meeting…every since fellowship at SCOI. Most don’t get to see all of the behind the scenes work that goes into producing the largest(about 500 surgeons), longest running (35 yrs), international shoulder meeting on earth. Here are a couple pre-game pics. This year I am doing a focus demonstration for the general assembly, Director of an Alex Shoulder Model Lab, and one of the EPIC one-on-one shoulder instructors in cadaver lab.

  • Top 7 reasons to concentrate a bone marrow aspiration to make a better orthobiologic

    I have been asked many times about my thoughts on concentrating bone marrow versus just using a straight bone marrow aspiration. Currently, there is at least one needle device on the market, Marrow Cellutions, which markets their device as a bone marrow aspiration device that eliminates the need for centrifuging bone marrow to create bone marrow concentrate.

  • The Doctor or Chiropractor Said I Am Going to Grow New Cartilage

    The Doctor or Chiropractor Said I Am Going to Grow New Cartilage

    Sadly,not true. At least not the way it is presented to people at seminars as a sales tactic to separate people from their hard earned money. A simple 5 degree xray tilt will make an xray change to look as if new cartilage has grown….that is what these clinics and people are showing potential patients who are interested in regenerative medicine procedures….and these clinics usually compound the deceit by telling patients they can get living stem cells from amniotic fluid or umbilical cord blood.
