Shortly following the visit to the Orthohealing Center in Los Angeles by Dr Jae Ryu MD PhD ; Choo Seung-Gyunof was treated in Korea with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for a Hamstring injury. Following successful treatment Choo lead the Egis throug a game 7 series in the (KBL) Korean Basketball League Championship in Jeonju.
The 34 y/o Choo set a record as the oldest player to achieve the award as well as his team's 4th Title. More & more professional athletes are receioving PRP Platelet Rich Plasma therapy. Studies are underway measuring the clinical benefits on tendon, ligament & cartilage (arthritis) for both elite & recreational athlete. This is a great example of international collaboration!
We encourage these visits & Dr Sampson will be travelling to Europe later this year to meet with pioneering physcians & researchers in biologics & stem cell therapy.
