Show Notes

In this episode, Marc and Mo discuss a number of intriguing questions related to the use of orthobiologics in orthopaedics: How do we set standards for novel biologics? How do we decide what works and what doesn’t? What filter should be used to determine which studies get published? Ultimately, we need to know how these materials are prepared and what is actually in them before we can evaluate their effect on patients. Answering these questions is essential work in order for us to make advances in this field.
