At the Centeno-Schultz Clinic, we are committed to advancing the science and practice of interventional orthopedics. This involves publishing in peer-reviewed publications, speaking at national conferences, instructing at the IOF courses, and mentoring our current fellows.
Last week, Dr. Matthew Hyzy lectured at the Rocky Vista University School of Medicine in Parker, Colorado. He discussed interventional orthopedics and how it will replace orthopedic surgery in the treatment of common orthopedic conditions. The lecture focused on the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and bone marrow-derived stem cells injected under direct visualization in the treatment of spine, knee, hip, and ankle injuries. PRP and stem cell treatments are not associated with the extensive rehabilitation and downtime often required by surgery, and these treatments allow preservation of biomechanics. He shared insights gained through his residency and fellowship and discussed how many of the skills being taught and mastered in current training programs will have less value in the future given the advances in regenerative medicine.
Dr. Hyzy is a Chicago native and completed his PM&R residency at the University of Texas at Austin School of Medicine, where he served as chief resident. He completed his fellowship in interventional orthopedics at the Centeno-Schultz Clinic and has published in the field of regenerative medicine.
Dr. Hzyz has worked diligently in the successful opening of the Centeno-Schultz Clinic in Lone Tree.
Great Job, Matthew!
