Another study in the American Journal Of Sports Medicine showing that bone marrow derived stem cells can have a role in cartilage repair. This was a well powered level 2 study with 10 year follow up. Results showed equivalence between autologous BMC and 1st gen ACI.
Please don’t spend $400 on “Stem Cell Pain Cream” that is supposedly FDA certified.
BUT…if you have joint pain, back pain, orthopedic injuries, sports injuries…come see us…we have nonsurgical regenerative medicine options to minimize your pain and help with recovery.
I had a great time playing in a charity baseball game at historic Reverchon Baseball Park in Dallas yesterday. I was on a team with lots of old pro and college baseball playing friends. We played against a team sponsored by the Warstic Bat Co. ….owned by Ben Jenkins, Ian Kinsler (baseball player) and Jack White (musician) There were around 200-300 in attendance and it was great to play without worrying about the score or personal results. I was 2-3 with 4 putouts and no errors.
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!
Video #14 in the “Know Series” of most common Prp and Stem Cell and orthobiologic questions we get from Doctors and patients and salespeople.

If you have joint pain or back pain or have been told you need orthopedic surgery….please come to our regenerative medicine seminar Wednesday, August 11 at 7p. Don Buford, MD, a Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon, will lead a question and answer seminar designed to protect patients from stem cell scams and to help patients decide when PRP or stem cell injections might be a good treatment option.
I recently came across this chart which nicely illustrates the difference in length of training in medical and surgical specialties. In addition to just the time and experience difference…there are differences in educational focus and content also. When looking for a doctor or surgeon to make your diagnosis and recommend ALL of the treatment options from regenerative medicine to surgery…..make sure you see someone qualified. When it is time to have someone inject you…make sure they have the proper training, experience, equipment, and even the proper malpractice insurance!
