Using orthobiologics like Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and stem cells (bone marrow derived) in orthopedics requires more than just surgical and nonsurgical training and technical skills. A doctor and clinic should be able to quantify the doses of these biologic drugs being given….otherwise we have no idea what we are giving to a patient! The picture shows our in house lab with 5 different centrifuges in house (yes 5!) and a hematology analyzer to quantify whole blood and PRP (and study bone marrow aspirate and bone marrow concentrate). We also have a cell counter to quantify bone marrow aspirate and bone marrow concentrate. We also have a biologic laminar flow cabinet. Our results go into each patient’s chart with every procedure and into our orthobiologic online registry with every procedure also! Know your doc and your clinic!
