Musculoskeletal related injury is a common occurrence. In many cases the damage is permanent and can adversely affect a person�??s quality of life. Now with advancing medical technology, the solution may lie in biologic therapy. In our centre, Kuala Lumpur Sports Medicine Centre, peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) have been clinically proven to enable regenerative repair in cartilage. The science, surgical technique, harvesting and storage of PBSC and the post-operative rehabilitation programme that encompasses this therapy have sequentially been developed to maximise the chances of high quality cartilage regeneration and repair. As PBSC has been reported to contain pluripotent cells, it offers the tantalising promise of a solution to promote healing in the treatment of complex cases. This presentation highlights the successful cases, among many, in musculoskeletal system repair.
