- Expert international faculty
- Scientific basis & Evidence for treatment with MSCs & PRP
- Live Patient Demonstrations for injection placement
- Tips and tricks to gain precise placement of injections with USS

The course includes an advanced masterclass on adipose-derived MSCs potential in Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine including basic science, evidence base and also clinical applications. Delegates will also get to practice on three different Adipose MSC preparation systems available in the UK and international markets.

12:15 –12:30 Future directions and applications
12:30 –13:30 LUNCH
13:30 – 14:00 Ultrasound Guided injections evidence base – The Gold standard?
14:00 – 15:00 Theory of Ultrasound and practice
15:00 – 15:15 BREAK
15:15 – 15:45 Ultrasound Demonstration of main joints
15:45 – 16:30 Practical demonstration of different harvesting systems with hands-on practice
Delegates spend the whole day in an anatomy lab practicing ultrasound guided injection of the upper and lower limb joints and soft tissue structures. This is on soft embalmed whole-body specimens for the most realistic and problem-solving training approach to USS guided injections. You will have to move and position extremities as you would in real patients to get access for your injections.
