Arthroventions, LLC - The First Step Towards More Effective Joint Care

Rick Scheuring pointing with Richard Meehan
 
Dear Friends,

We need your help in determining if there is a market need for better joint injections and aspirations.

These are common out-patient procedures used to inject therapeutics to treat arthritis and joint pain, and are usually required before a patient is eligible for a joint replacement.

Therapeutics that are injected include cortisone, viscosupplementation / hyaluronic acid, and new regenerative therapies such as PRP (platelet-rich plasma) and stem cells.

However, clinical research literature indicates that up 1 of 3 landmark guided joint injections miss the joint space.1

Your input is critical in determining whether this is a pain point for arthritis patients and if there is a market need.

If you have received a joint injection or aspiration, please take a minute to complete our short survey.

Sincerely,

Dr. Richard Meehan
