The use of biologics in a variety of injured skeletal tissue has slowly developed and it now appears that these new materials and treatment algorithms will be implemented.Overview
The "bio" is not a new concept but it represents now a developing component in the practice of modern orthopaedics and sports medicine.
Biologic regeneration is a hot topic with many claims of success but few areas in which this success has been accepted universally.
The field of bio-orthopaedics is constantly evolving and the focus of the meeting, will be two fold, to give an overview of the emerging orthobiologic approaches for musculoskeletal pathologies and in sports medicine. The indications and the limits of PRP, stem cells, scaffolds, bone marrow concentrate, adipose tissue and many other new treatments will be discussed by key opinion leaders coming from all around the world.
We will explore the current state of the field with faculty from many different disciplines to provide a detailed and comprehensive view from different aspects of the medical world as well as the globe.
We will have the opportunity to listen to different experts on the same topic from basic scientists, surgeons and general practitioners. Finally, an extensive discussion including the "giants" and the next generation of experts ready to share their experience and vision with the attendees.
Our program will include hot topics and extensive discussion on the use of orthobiologics for active sports patients, from professional athletes to middle age active people as well as fundamental principles in the regeneration of tissue.
