MedRebels welcomes practicing physicians to a cumulative 18-hour educational symposium and cadaveric workshop on cellular-based and regenerative therapies and their clinical applications for orthopaedics and pain management.  During this workshop, industry leaders will review current research and clinical studies, and they will address clinical pearls for implementing regenerative medicine into their practice.  Physicians will receive hands-on cadaveric training utilizing ultrasound-guidance and fluoroscopy.  They will also learn a variety of techniques for treating different musculoskeletal conditions.  Physicians also have an opportunity to learn about marketing strategies and how to incorporate the business of regenerative medicine.


Internationally renowned orthopaedic surgeon and clinical researcher, Dr. Philippe Hernigou serves as Chief of Orthopaedic Surgery at the Henri Mondor Hospital, East University at Paris, France.  He has published dozens of peer-reviewed articles and clinical studies, and he has treated over 5000 patients with bone marrow concentrate for over 25 years.  He is excited to share new data on Utilizing Bone Marrow Concentrate Therapy in the Elderly as well as the Effects of Donor Age on Progenitor Cell Content of Human Bone Marrow Aspirate and Mechnaically Disrupted Lipoaspirate.
