- Advanced PRF Education
New Course at PRFEdu: Advanced PRF 2-day GBR Course
Lectures and Minipig Hands-On with Dr. Richard Miron and Dr. Hussein Basma
This new course is designed for the clinician that currently utilized PRF in every day practice, but wishes to maximize on the technology by understanding the advancements made in the field over the past 5 years including the ability to extended the working properties of PRF from 2-3 weeks into a biomaterial that last 4-6 months.
While beginners may take the program, the course is designed to take clinicians into the world whereby extended-PRF membranes can replace collagen membranes created using the Bio-Heat Technology including its various clinical applications. While many colleagues in the past have taken the 1 day PRF program either live or online, this course is designed to teach clinicians how to make e-PRF membranes including the Bio-Bone protocols. Day 2 will be entirely run at Nova Southeastern University's simulation lab where participants will get to practice each protocol and surgical technique on big mandible jaws. Topics such as GBR techniques and soft tissue grafting will be covered.
