We’re pivoting this episode from the classic orthopedic surgeon story and we’re moving into value for the surgeon and medical device reps. We have on Matthew Ray Scott, also known as The Bearded One and The Brand Man. He is Managing Director and Principal of FEED. The Agency. He helps surgeons and medical device companies differentiate themselves from the sea of sameness. Topics include:

They encourage doctors who are trying to prove they are the better to pivot to prove how they are different to attract more ideal patients. One aspect is through their Brand Rx audit. Brand Rx helps deliver outcomes that matter most through brand awareness, new patients, more referrals, more five-star online reviews, and more repeat patients.

-We discuss the 6 P’s: Pain, Perspective, Problem Solving, People, Process and Place.

-Matthew’s time in the U.S. Army where he learned formative leadership experience and moved outside his comfort zone to be able to embrace discomfort.

-PitchPro: It’s like Shark Tank, but for orthopreneurs. Both Matthew Ray Scott and Dr. Scott Sigman are panelists on PitchPro and discuss the view from their side. PitchPro is an opportunity for early development or growth stage companies to pitch their innovation to a panel of experts.

Continuing to bring you the best of the best in orthopedics. Our guest this week has 27 peer-reviewed publications and he’s still in residency. We have Dr. Dhanur Damodar joining this episode. He’s currently the Chief Resident at University of Miami and prepping to join the Windy City at Rush University/Midwest Orthopedics to do his sports medicine fellowship next year. He gives us insight and perspective on what training is like now and his passion in becoming an orthopedic surgeon.

1.) In addition to his plethora of peer-reviewed publications, he has many other accolades including the AANA Ortho-Regeneration Resident Scholar winner and AANA Resident Scholarship winner

2.) His entrepreneurial desire outside of orthopedic surgery, including branching into the digital health space

3.) The importance of professional brand, including presence on social media. He discusses a paper in-submission with OJSM on “The impact of social media presence, age, and patient reported wait times on physician review websites for sports medicine surgeons.” Physicians with a professional social media account had better wait times and reviews. It increases patient engagement with an online presence and helps make an orthopedic surgeon more relatable

4.) Schooling us on the new app, Clubhouse. Join this new fad and listen to The Bone Club

5.) Solid advice for those young listeners considering a career in orthopedics

Regenerative medicine is a complicated space and we get key questions answered for our listeners during this episode.

What is PRP? What are stem cells? Does it work? Does it not work? Is it worth the extra money? Who do I go to? We discuss these key questions with Dr. Steven Sampson, one of the nation’s pioneers in regenerative medicine. He’s a top sports medicine doctor in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills and is internationally recognized in the field of non-surgical orthopedics. Dr. Sampson is the physician founder of the Orthohealing Center and physician to Olympic athletes and Los Angeles Clippers. He is also the founder of TOBI, The Orthobiologic Institute, an annual conference which has grown to 1000+ doctors in 40 countries. Discussion topics include:

-Why is regenerative medicine like The Grateful Dead or black licorice? You either love it or hate it. Dr. Sampson discusses how regenerative medicine is changing the way we are doing things and embracing new approaches to care

-Discussion on patient pay model on regenerative medicine. Pricing depends on region, quality, preparation and physician experience. His suggestion is to do your research and reviews on physicians in your area for individuals considering regenerative medicine

-Regenerative medicine crosses multiple specialties and the TOBI conference includes attendees such as plastic surgeons, neurologists, orthopedic surgeons and veterinarians who share best practices to advance the field. TOBI 2021 is slated October 7-9, 2021 as an interactive virtual experience. Check out the conference here

-Wild West claims about what regenerative medicine can do vs. scientific evidence. Dr. Sampson is passionate about the potential of cell based therapies and discusses along with it comes opportunists or rogue physicians taking care of vulnerable patients

-Various types of regenerative medicine with PRP and bone marrow concentrate. His theory is bone marrow is loaded with anti-inflammatory proteins and bone marrow concentrate can neutralize the inflammation. He’s continuing on publishing the outcomes
