A great deal of research has been done, and experts are now concluding that bone marrow injections can be used to effectively treat arthritis in the knees, as well as other joints throughout the body.
Orthobiologics is steadily becoming more advanced and sophisticated, and many experts agree there will come a time when it is used in favor of more invasive orthopedic surgeries. In fact, because orthobiologics can heal body tissue without all the downtime, risks, and potential complications of full-blown surgery, it may very well become more popular and more prevalent than many kinds of orthopedic surgery.
If you have an orthopedic problem....you deserve a complete evaluation and an unbiased opinion on cutting edge nonsurgical options...and if indicated....on surgical options too.
Very few doctors have the surgical and nonsurgical experience to do both.
At Texas Orthobiologics we have been doing that for 16 years and our #1 status on healthgrades.com is based on personalizing treatment for every patient and avoiding surgery whenever possible.
Give us a shout, you won't be sorry!
*Two Orthobiologic Questions*
#1 Is PRP (platelet rich plasma) considered a drug (or HCT/P)? NO
#2 Can a doctor advertise PRP treatment for orthopedic conditions?*
Yes, as long as the advertisement is based on accepted medical evidence (ie. studies showing beneficial human outcomes)
This is just my opinion :) (Based on some solid data though)
The FDA is starting to get even more aggressive in enforcing their HCT/P regulations. The FDA statement yesterday makes it clear that what many of us have been saying for years is in fact true. #1 Stem cells, SVF, umbilical cord blood, amniotic fluid, Wharton’s Jelly, exosomes, and orthobiologics are all considered biologic drugs and ALL are improperly registered under section 361 for orthopedic applications.
*When is a level 2 scientific study NOT a level 2 scientific study?*
Answer: When it is a retrospective review of an insurance company database.
A recently published 2021 study by Dr. James Pritchett, is titled “The debit side of stem-cell joint injections: a prospective cohort study” and is listed as a Level 2 study by the journal…Current Orthopedic Practice.
