The AAOM offers a Practical Workshop to physicians to further their training, education and practice of Interventional Regenerative Orthopedic Medicine ("IROM") (C) with PRP and Prolotherapy. The Workshop design includes instruction on patient evaluation and diagnosis, solutions, needle placement, injection technique and patient treatments. The course provides a hands-on exposure to both PRP and Prolotherapy for the physician under the guidance of experienced instructors allowing you to gain firsthand experience which can then be used in your own practices at home. The course also provides medical care to patients at no cost allowing many to receive care for chronic pain conditions that might otherwise go untreated.
This IROM educational course and medical mission takes place in beautiful Cancun, Mexico, designed to give each physician-learner a direct, hands-on treatment experience with live patients. The Workshop is a high-volume live patient experience, so the physician-learner can expect to personally perform supervised, directed, palpation-guided PRP and Prolotherapy injections on multiple patients.
Our host physician and Clinic Coordinator is Dr. Wajid Burad, a Cancun native and Sports Medicine Physician, who coordinates the patient recruitment, treatment, and follow-up care of all the local patients.
Course is limited to 21 physician-learners.
DAY 1 HANDS-ON ANATOMICAL GUIDED INSTRUCTION
The AAOM instructors will initiate this course teaching you to understand the anatomy as part of a well rounded expert in the field of IROM. Instructors will cover the history, safety, and concepts of both PRP and Prolotherapy for IROM. Training will be focused on developing basic knowledge and concepts of hands-on skills of physical exam, anatomy, and topographical target location and marking using both palpation and ultrasound-guided methods. Day 1 will be focused on the lower extremity including the hip, knee, ankle and foot.
DAY 2-3 TRAINING STATIONS- LIVE PATIENT INSTRUCTION
Through both palpation and ultrasound imaging, our instructors will teach you how to reach your target in all peripheral joints. You will learn to perform US-guided of both PRP and Prolotherapy injections on multiple live patients, under the supervision of your instructor. Day 2 will be focused on the upper extremity including the shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand. Day 3 will be focused on the spine and spinal ligaments. All PRP is processed and prepared for injection in a certified Lab. The physician-learner will be instructed with no more than 4:1 student to instructor ratio
