Get to Know Dr. Markle
IOF: What do you treat most frequently with regenerative medicine?
Dr. Markle: I’m fortunate to have had excellent training through my fellowship and IOF, I am able to see a variety of patients from upper cervical instability to peripheral nerve entrapments to ACL tears and everything in between.
IOF: What is your best advice for others wanting to get into regenerative medicine?
Dr. Markle: Understanding the fundamentals and clinical indications for all orthobiologic is critical. With regulatory framework in the United States still being shaped, it is important to get proper training from basic to advanced treatment options, plus documentation and tracking patient outcomes in a registry will be paramount to aid in advancing the body of knowledge to further detail clinical indications for different orthobiologic.
IOF: Which IOF course is your favorite? Why?
Dr. Markle: At this point in time, I have instructed just about every course IOF offers. At the advanced courses it is always great to train colleagues but also use the time to share clinical experiences with each other and learn from one another. At beginner level courses, it is always great to help with training the next wave of great physicians that will one day be the backbone of IOF, helping in advancing the field. It is great to watch as young residents start seeing beyond the world of corticosteroid treatments and the endless opportunities that orthobiologics have to offer.
