    Biologic therapies (using substances made from living organisms to treat disease) are the latest cutting-edge tool that you can implement in your practice to improve patient outcomes.

    In this ODwire.org Radio show, we sit down with Nick Colatrella, OD, FAAO to discuss:

    * What biologic therapies are
    * How he uses them in his private practice in Minnesota
    * How clinicians who want to get started with biologic therapies can do so & build them into their practices.

    We also talk more in-depth with Dr. Colatrella about PROKERA®, a biologic corneal bandage composed of preserved amniotic membrane tissue.

    Docs who want to provide leading-edge care to their patients & differentiate themselves should take a listen to this show!

    Please discuss your experiences with biologic therapies in the thread below, Dr. Colatrella can answer any follow-up questions here!

    Thanks again to Nick for a fun talk; I confess going into the show I knew very little about the use of biologics, so this one was definitely useful for me!
