RESEARCH ON RABBITS LEADS TO NEW TREATMENTS FOR HUMANS
Congratulations to N. Lindsay Harris, MD, Eleanor von Stade, MD, Mark Purnell, MD of Aspen Orthopaedic Associates and Andrew Larson, BSME, the Aspen Sports Medicine Foundation, Director of Research.
In the May 2012 edition of The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery they published a research paper titled “The Effect of Platelet-Rich Plasma on Normal Soft Tissue in the Rabbit”.
This important research investigates platelet-rich plasma which is reported to contain multiple growth factors, and has been utilized in orthopaedic surgery to aid healing in humans.
“Dr. von Stade:4+ excellent care. Good communication, pleasant, good listener.”
“I attended an evening AVH presentation by Dr. von Stade, and based on her talk, and personal attention by her there, I followed up with an appointment in her office. I was extremely satisfied with her and her staff’s work. Dr. Leelee was very professional, friendly, and thorough.”
“Following a ski accident, I received care in your ER for a fractured clavicle (five places) and other injuries. I want to thank everyone involved for the very high level of care and the friendly and professional attitudes of all personnel who assisted me. Dr. Leelee von Stade was my surgeon. Her care and associated advice were outstanding. If I decide to break any more bones, I hope I’m near your facility when I do so!!!”
