Mitchell Sheinkop, M.D. is a board certified orthopedic surgeon and a leading authority on the treatment of patients with complex hip and knee disorders. He is well known for his pioneering use of computer-assisted navigation, minimally-invasive technologies and hip resurfacing techniques. He is a professor emeritus in the Department of Orthopedics at Rush University and an active lecturer and educator.

After specializing in total joint replacements for decades, Dr Sheinkop is now pioneering work in the non-surgical realm. Dr Sheinkop is leading an IRB register clinical trial utilizing BMC Bone Marrow Concentrate for the treatment of hip and knee osteoarthritis. http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT01601951

Treatments like BMC may fill the void for treatment of younger active individuals that are not ready for total joint replacement. Biologic therapies like PRP, have opened the door for more sophisticated cell based therapies offering hope to address this epidemic of increased osteoarthritis in our community.

At the Orthohealing Center of Los Angeles CA, Dr Steven Sampson and his team provide BMC Bone marrow concentration injections combines with PRP for more challenging cases of arthritis with very encouraging results, however more studies like Dr Sheinkop’s work are needed.

Dr Sheinkop has a terrific blog that we encourage our readers to follow: http://www.sheinkopmd.com/blog/

The Orthobiologic Institute’s (TOBI) annual symposium this June 2013 will host pioneering physicians and researchers like Dr Sheinkop to further our field in regenerative medicine. See details at www.prpseminar.com.
