Platelet Rich Plasma Injection Therapy Use in Korea
Recently I had the pleasure of meeting Jae Wook Ryu MD PhD from Seoul Korea. Dr Ryu is the team doctor of professional baseball team (Woori Heros). Dr Ryu visited our clinic in Los Angeles all the way from S. Korea to exchange experiences & protocols. We encourage these international meetings and have had physicians visit from other countries as well.
Dr Ryu incorporates additional protocols prior to PRP therapy including acupuncture and nutritional supplementation & IV therapy to stimulate collagen (tissue) growth. Dr Ryu has treated professional athletes including a Korean professional baseball pitcher with great results. PRP holds great promise & hopefully by exchanging ideas with other pioneering docs across the globe we can make great advancements in medicine.
