Pre-Conference Roundtable Meeting – February 16th at 1:00 p.m.
In response to uncertain changes coming to the FDA’s rules covering autologous tissues, the IOF has organized a collaborative roundtable meeting to advocate for the responsible use of patient-derived orthobiologic treatments. This effort, spearheaded by the IOF, involves a short-term strategy to protect the continued use of autologous orthobiologics by generating more support and awareness for this field. Towards this end, discussions will be focused on developing standards for autologous orthobiologic use in daily practice, understanding the current regulatory issues, and defining new strategies to protect the viability of this innovative medical specialty to ensure patients continue to have access to their own regenerative tissues. We hope you will stand with us and help move the field of interventional orthopedics forward by joining us one day early for our important pre-conference discussions!
The annual conference officially begins on Friday, February 17th at 8:00 a.m. MST, and the general session will end by 6:00 p.m. General Session format will include didactic lectures, interactive sessions, case studies, and question and answer sessions.
