Participants will obtain hands-on practice preparing PRP using both the ACP and ANGEL PRP preparation systems and will also practice activating PRP using clinically-applicable activation protocols.

2018 Jacques Jenny Lecturer

Dr. Scott Banks is a Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of Florida. Although you may not initially make the leap to veterinary orthopedics based on his department, he has been active in veterinary and human orthopedic research his entire career. Scott's research interests include joint biomechanics in animals and people in the healthy, diseased, and replaced states. His lectures in 2018 will likely include topics including radiographic measurement of dynamic skeletal motion, robotics in the operating room, and comparing human and dog knees. Scott has attended the VOS meeting in years past so he is familiar with the format and comradery of our scientific sessions.
