COST: $ 29.99 - EXPIRATION DATE: 2019-12-31
Orthobiologics are frequently used by orthopaedic surgeons to provide an optimal environment for tissue healing in effort to help injuries heal more rapidly. Understanding the process of manipulating point of care blood products such as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Bone Marrow Aspirate (BMA), will help determine best treatment care for an injury. Determining which blood product in needed for certain injuries is important to ensure optimal healing. As research on orthobiologics continues to grow clinicians will have more treatment options to utilize in the sports medicine setting.
i. Describe the basics of biologics and stem cell
ii. Explain the advances in regenerative medicine
iii. Recognize the clinical application for stem cell and regenerative medicine
