Dr Nadkarni at the 1st Biobridge Asia Pacific Conference on PRP ( Platelet Rich Plasma ) with key note speaker Dr Stanley Lam from Hong Kong .
Stanley is a pioneer and expert in hydro dissection of nerves and tendons using PRP.
For those of you who are not aware there has been a revolution in the development of regenerative biological therapies for the treatment of degenerative and inflammatory conditions .
I have been using it in my practice since it’s inception . For properly selected patients and good rehab programmes following treatment the results are good . The evidence base is growing and experts like Stanley are educating other physicians in the various applications.
Looking forward to incorporating hydro dissection in troublesome pain cases. – Dr Sanjay Nadkarni
This is Dr Wayne Yakes all the way from Texas.
He is one of the world authorities on the treatment of Vascular Malformations. He has his own take on the classification of Arterio Venous Malformations, “The Yakes Classification.”
I had the pleasure of presenting with him to a group of interventional radiologists in Melbourne just over a week ago. I spoke on the Penumbra Aspiration Thrombectomy Device and he spoke on the Yakes Classification and the management of AVM’s. – Dr Sanjay Nadkarni
I caught up with Dr Mark Meissner , an eminent vascular surgeon from Seattle at the recent UIP (World Congress of Phlebology).
Dr Meissner has been instrumental in making Pelvic Congestion Syndrome more recognisable amongst Doctors and Specialists and is considered one of the world authorities on the subject.
I really enjoy listening to his presentations and we share some common thoughts on the definitions and management of Pelvic Venous Disorders – Dr Sanjay Nadkarni
