Biologic Treatments Get the Attention of AAOS in Current Issue

As research accumulates to support and build data behind biologic treatments, mainstream orthopedic organizations take note.

The January issue of the leading orthopedic news magazine and the official magazine of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, AAOS NOW, featured a piece on biologic treatments becoming the standard of care in cartilage restoration.

The article in AAOS NOW, “Will Biologic Treatments for Cartilage Restoration Become the Standard of Care?” addresses challenges in orthobiologics for cartilage restoration, such as a lack of standardized harvest and treatment algorithm. However, the author, Rivka Ihejirika, MD, remains optimistic about biologic treatments and their potential to augment tissue regeneration and ultimately become standard of care for many orthopedic treatments.
