Platelet-rich Plasma in Orthopaedic Applications: Evidence-based Recommendations for Treatment


(click the image above for a high-res PDF of the full graphic)

WHO: Orthopaedic surgeons Scott R. Rodeo, MD, and Freddie H. Fu, MD, co-authors of a new literature on evidence-based recommendations for platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment and procedures.
WHAT: “Platelet-rich Plasma in Orthopaedic Applications: Evidence-based Recommendations for Treatment,” appears in the December 2013 issue of the Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (JAAOS).

PRP, rich in many growth factors that have important implications in healing, can potentially regenerate body tissue. The authors discuss evidence-based recommendations for clinical and surgical applications for PRP therapies and best treatment practices.
WHY: Over the last five years, many famous athletes have undergone PRP therapies for bone and joint injuries—typically treated with medications, physical therapy, or even surgery—to help them more quickly return to sport. The extensive publicity on their usage of this relatively new treatment option has dramatically increased general public awareness and demand for the alternative therapy.
HOW: Contact the AAOS public relations department at 847-384-4035 to schedule an interview with Drs. Rodeo or Fu.
