Platelet Rich Plasma Story on CNN

Anderson Cooper and Dr. Sanjay Gupta reported last night on AC360 about platelet rich plasma.  Their description of the process and potential benefits of the PRP will help patients better understand how the treatment works.  They also discuss how PRP was used by Tiger Woods and how his doctor is under investigation.  See the video below for details.  AM (Total Tendon)

I'm really happy to see some mainstream media coverage of PRP and it's potential benefits. I'm disturbed, though, that the story is framed in the context of "performance-enhancing drugs".

I'm reminded of a provocative presentation I saw a few years ago at the O'Reilly Emerging Technologies conference (Etech 2007) by a graduate student pushing boundaries at the MIT Media Lab:

Quinn Norton shared some examples of – and insights into – body hacking, which she defined as "acting on yourself, with or without assistance, to enhance the function of your body or your perceptions", and in keeping with other forms of hacking, noted that body hacking is [simply?] another form of volition: the freedom to enact your will upon a system. One of the penetrating questions she asked was “Where does treatment end and enhancement begin?”, noting that the medical community has to pathologize the thing that changes in order for "treating" it to become acceptable practice (e.g.., the [acceptable] use of antidepressants required pathologizing grief, stomach staples required pathologizing obesity, leading one to wonder about the pathologization that is implicit or explicit in a variety of procedures and medicines to impart “sexual super powers”, e.g., boob jobs, gender reassignment, sex enhancer drugs and even IUDs ... or whether pathologization of aging will be required for approval of drugs intended to mimic the effects of calorie restriction ... although I suppose the effects of aging may well be pathological). Questioning the arbitrary line between acceptable enhancement and unfair advantage, Quinn cited a Slate article on “If steroids are cheating, why isn’t Lasik?” … leading me to reflect on the notion of cheating in general, which seems to be becoming more acceptable, and even expected, in society (e.g., game cheats).

I hope that PRP will ultimately come to be regarded more like LASIK than steroids ...
