The “bio” is not a new concept but it represents now a developing component in the practice of modern orthopaedics and sports medicine. Biologic regeneration is a hot topic with many claims of success but few areas in which this success has been accepted universally. We will explore the current state of the field with faculty from many different disciplines to provide a detailed and comprehensive view from different aspects of the medical world as well as the globe. The use of biologics in a variety of injured skeletal tissue has slowly developed and it now appears that these new materials and treatment algorithms will be implemented. The field of bio-orthopaedics is constantly evolving and the focus of the meeting, will be two fold, to give an overview of the emerging orthobiologic approaches for musculoskeletal pathologies and in sports medicine. The indications and the limits of PRP, stem cells, scaffolds, bone marrow concentrate, adipose tissue and many other new treatments will be discussed by key opinion leaders coming from all around the world.

We will have the opportunity to listen to different experts on the same topic from basic scientists, surgeons and general practitioners. Finally, an extensive discussion including the “giants” and the next generation of experts ready to share their experience and vision with the attendees. Our program will include hot topics and extensive discussion on the use of orthobiologics for active sports patients, from professional athletes to middle age active people as well as fundamental principles in the regeneration of tissue. Join us in wonderful “Sunny Sun Diego” in January where you cannot only enjoy the Summit but also the mild climate, the sea with all it has to offer in the way of sport and relax in the city which has an amazing fusion of American and Latin cultures.  Opportunities for spouse and post meeting activities will be available in this picturesque seaside community.
