New Platelet Rich Plasma Article in the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons Now Magazine
As PRP use is increasing, we are seeing more articles surfacing discussing it's potential benefits. In a monthly publication for orthopaedists, the AAOS (Amer Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons) released an article titled "Clinical use of Platelet-rich plasma in orthopaedics."
In general, the article familiarizes the reader with the science behind it's uses and advocates is use in soft tissue and wound repair, while cautioning it's application in bone grafting. Once again, further research is encouraged.
