The Biologic Orthopedic Society (BOS) is a group of professionals dedicated to the research and development of biologic treatments for musculoskeletal injuries and disorders. This group has now grown to over 2500 members worldwide. Much of the group's focus has been on the use of platelet rich plasma, stem cells and bone marrow concentrate (BMC) for tendonitis, arthritis and degenerative spinal disc disease.
The growth of the Biologic Orthopedic Society (BOS) is a testimony to the rapidly rising interest in biologic solutions to difficult musculoskeletal problems. Significant progress has been made in terms of better published data supporting the use of biologic therapies in the last 2-3 years. Clearly, more information and research is still needed. As the group continues to grown, more and more connections are being made. Ideas and projects are advancing. All of this should give hope to those patients in search of better treatments. Many hard working professionals are striving to deliver better biologic options.
I'll predict within another 5-10 years, we will be staggered by how much will be accomplished.
Thanks to my many colleagues and friends within the BOS for a fantastic journey so far.
If you are a professional working in the area, please consider joining the group.
