For the new year, I wanted to post a series of infographics that I have been creating. These are very focused on helping patients either understand high from low-quality orthobiologics offerings or help them make key decisions like whether they should get surgery or an invasive procedure versus a precise, guided orthobiologic injection instead. Each stands on its own and gets the point across without too much additional explanation, hence you’ll just see me posting one per day with just a touch of commentary. Please share these with your friends and family who might be considering these procedures!
Here’s the first one today and this daily posting should continue for the next few weeks. This one is a topic I discuss frequently with patients. If you’re middle-aged or older, you need high-dose PRP. Hence, you should ask the provider who is offering PRP how concentrated it will be. If you get a blank stare, then look for another clinic. Enjoy!
