Arthritis and sports injuries can often lead to a need for joint replacement surgery. During this Senior Session, attendees learn about an alternative. Orthopedic surgeon Dr. Chadwick Prodromos has been using injections of biologics to treat these conditions. The biologics, made up of the patients' own blood and tissue, have been effective for knees, hips, shoulders, hands, and feet. Dr. Prodromos talks about the study he has participated in and the results he has found.
