Target Audience


This activity is designed for healthcare professionals including physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and allied healthcare professionals of all specialties.

Goals and Objectives


New and intriguing developments that are in trials will potentially improve, in the future, the ability to appropriately use biologics (stem cells) and other treatments. Examples will be given of several studies that are ongoing to scientifically delineate the safety and effectiveness (or not) of these biologics, and techniques. Future patient outcomes will hopefully be positively influenced as the providers learn what new treatments may be available for various orthopedic conditions. At the conclusion of the session, learners should be better prepared to utilize emerging technologies to make better decisions to enhance patient care and outcomes.
