The International Cellular Medicine Society (ICMS) has become the premier society for cellular medicine representing physicians from 35 countries and 6 continents. It recently held its second annual conference. In addition to presentations on platelet rich plasma(PRP), adipose and bone marrow derived mesenchymal stem cell therapies, the conference also held a one day training course: Essential Knowledge in the Collection of Stem Cells.
The Centeno-Schultz Clinic was proud to have three physicians present at this conference. Dr. Centeno was the moderator and lectured on FDA regulation of stem cells and presented new knee outcome data (recently submitted for publication). He also presented on the science and techniques used to collect stem cells from bone marrow. Dr. Schultz lectured on treating degenerative discs with stem cells and on the use of fluoroscopy in stem cell collection. Dr. Hanson lectured on stem cell collection using musculoskeletal ultrasound.
