    Stem cells will help you, just sayin

    If you know about them, spread the word

    OVATION or OVATION OS wrapped with GRAFIX should take care of the mending without infection, Sorry but the score can't be changed.

    Do you think anyone on the medical staff is aware of OSIRIS?

    NEW ORLEANS (CBS Las Vegas) — Ouch.

    Arizona Cardinals safety Rashad Johnson lost part of his left middle finger during Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints.

    According to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic, Johnson’s injury occurred while he was tackling Darren Sproles on a punt return. He realized what happened after he took his glove off and a piece of his finger was still in it.

    Johnson had surgery Sunday night, as Somers reports that doctors had to shave the down the bone to repair it.

    Since Johnson’s bone was exposed in the gruesome injury, doctors will be watching for a possible infection to develop.

    It is not known how long Johnson will be sidelined for.

    To add insult to injury, the Cardinals fell to 1-2 on the season after getting pummeled by the Saints 31-7.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • It is a shame that the hand surgeon probably never heard of Grafix and Ovation. The surgeon may not have had to shave down the finger to the bone. If these biosurgery products were used, Rashad Johnson's finger might have had a better outcome as more finger could have been salvaged with less pain, a quicker healing time and less cost. Not to mention a lucrative NFL career that may now be compromised.

      • Really wish Osiris would develop an aggressive and proactive sports marketing department that would scan the headlines for these types of stories and immediately call the physician and patient to counsel the professional, college and even high school level. they could set up google searches that immediately filter the web for such articles and have them ready to go. Even if the surgery has already happened, they could afterwards and tell the doctor, "you know what, we might have a better approach for future cases".

        I was really heartened to find out that Louisiana. C. Thomas Vangsness, Jr., MD, Professor of Surgery and Chief of Sports Medicine for the University of Southern California will be presenting cartiform at the 2014 American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) Annual Meeting, March 11-15, in New Orleans. Even though I hate SC (go Bruins!) to have one of the most prestigious football schools in the country introduce Osiris' blockbuster biomedic should garner a lot of notice from other schools in the country. Once they have been introduced to it, all the other programs at the school will use it, then ordinary folks as well. Remember, as the commercials incessantly tell us (with Keith Jackson doing the voice over) Gatorade was once just a concoction brewed for the Florida Gators to rehydrate them, now it is a billion dollar drink.
