  1. So was the message to all the docs injecting patients with prp, “keep doing it” but don’t put it on your website? It is always great to have an intervention where the “natural history of the disease” is to get better (lateral epicondylitis, tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, low back pain). A sad day when physicians get in the same category as snake oil vendors.

      Hi Dr. Clark,

      Thank you for listening to the episode. The true message of the episode was awareness of this FDA consumer alert and helping to provide clarity for all listeners including physicians, medical device companies and patients. Our goal is to advance patient care by the sharing of information and hopefully helped some physicians with compliance with breaking down the info in this alert.
