The Dallas PRP and Stem Cell Institute has now had just over 50 people attend and another 75 already signed up to come to our Thursday evening Orthobiologic seminar series. We discuss the many orthopedic conditions for which platelet rich plasma and stem cell injections are being used and studied.
or the last 1.5 years we have been doing an in office study looking at trying to get partial thickness rotator cuff tendons to heal with a single injection of bone marrow derived stem cells. We are enrolling 25 patients and this is the procedure video from #21 done today! If you think you might be a candidate for one of the last 4 spots call our office at 214-385-4861 or -4860. There is no cost to be in the study.
I tell all patients that the easiest thing to remember is that for an orthopedic stem cell procedure to be legal, verifiable, and to have published human clinical outcomes for the condition being treated…..the stem cells HAVE to come from their own bone marrow.
We will continue our educational PRP and Stem Cell Seminars in 2018 on January 9th and 30th.
Seminars are led by the Director, Don Buford, MD, an orthopedic surgeon and the founder of the Institute.
We will be holding our last free 2017 PRP and Stem Cell Seminar
All are invited!
I had yet another conversation with a neuromonitoring company recently. The explosion of these companies is not tied to their medical necessity but rather financial gain and greed. The chance of a nerve injury in a shoulder, knee, or hip arthroscopy is 0.01% to 0.03% (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19620828) and yet there are salespeople that approach me nearly every week to monitor my cases for this 1 in 10,000 occurrence!
74 and my new favorite patient….just in today and I was hoping she had done well after hip and knee BMC injections. She one upped me and brought in the video below. Most start to notice a benefit by 6 weeks ….although we have had patients who reported feeling better even sooner.
Don Buford, MD, the Director of the Institute, will be holding 1 hour evening seminars on Tuesdays in November….the 7th, 14th, and 28th. Seminars will run from 6p – 7p.
At the Dallas PRP and Stem Cell Institute (dallasprpandstemcell.com) we are turning bad knees into good knees with an in office bone marrow derived stem cell injection....takes an hour...no surgery
