Over the past decade, my research has focused on tissue engineering of articular cartilage using adipose-derived stem cells, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries, and reconstruction techniques, to study the development of osteoarthritis (PTOA) following ACL injury. As a specialist in Orthopedic Sports Medicine and as a team physician to many professional collegiate teams over my career, I am well aware of the disability resulting from PTOA following joint injuries, particularly ACL tears. In addition, a cornerstone of our biologics research involves platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Sufficient data does not yet exist to standardize the use of PRP. As such, our research focuses on the efficacy of the clinical applications of PRP and autologous blood products, particularly in osteoarthritic patients.
