We interviewed two orthopedic surgeons fromย Midwest Orthopedics at Rush who are helping to shape the future of medicine, biologics. Biologics like Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), Bone Marrow Aspirate Stem Cell Concentrate (BMAC), corticosteroid injections, and hyaluronic acid are all the rage in medicine right now - and for good reason. Instead of having to reconstruct or repair damaged or torn tissues in the body via surgery, what if we could help relieve pain and improve function with a minimal invasive biologic injection? That is the promise of biologics and medicine. While significantly more research needs to be done to better understand how to best deliver biologics and which patients they may benefit the most, the future is very promising. As physical therapists, we will always be advocates of more conservative measures like physical therapy or biologic injections prior to more invasive options like surgery when warranted to potentially give our patients the upper hand in their rehab.
