ODT Forum Presents Regenerative Technologies

RAMSEY, N.J., April 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Orthopedic Design & Technology Forum will take place May 3, 2012, at the FedEx Institute of Technology in Memphis, Tenn. Among the critical topics presented at this year's annual event, a conference session will address future trends in biologics—design implications, commercialism and ethics.

There have been numerous advancements in the field of biologics: inductive proteins, conductive substrates, and stem cell use have become clinically available as substitutes for autogenous bone grafts. They provide a significant patient outcome over traditional methods, as well as improving healing and lowering overall care costs.

Despite the benefits, these advancements also come with some controversy. The ODT panel "Advanced Orthopedic Technologies, Implants and Regenerative Products" will present these issues from a research and application perspectives. Join panelists:

  • Barbara Blum, Ph.D.m, Senior Project Engineer II, Wright Medical Technology Inc.
  • Dr. Burhan Gharaibeh, Research Assistant Professor, Stem Cell Research Center, University of Pittsburgh
  • Chris Patterson, Director, TL Deformity, Trauma and MAST Fixation, Medtronic Spinal and Biologics
