August 1 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Dr. Peter Hanson came home to La Mesa and joined Grossmont Orthopedic Medical Group in August of 1992 and has enjoyed all aspects of his orthopedic practice, which includes sports medicine, arthroscopy, shoulder reconstruction and lower extremity total joint replacement including introducing the anterior hip approach to East County. He has been Chief of Orthopedic Surgery, and for over 12 years has served as the Medical Director of Orthopedic Surgery at Grossmont Hospital, a position that involves orchestrating the Total Joint Replacement program for the hospital. At Grossmont Hospital, he has served as Chief of Staff, as well as Chairman of the Board of Directors.
Dr. Hanson has always been involved in clinical research, but became much more so the last 6 years. He was President of the San Diego Stem Cell Center, and is Medical Director of BioSolutions Clinical Research Center. With San Diego as a hub of Biotechnology, he has developed relationships with local, national, and international companies and done FDA clinical trials for multiple regenerative medicine trials, primarily for arthritis of the hip and knee.
His presentation will talk about recent changes in FDA regulations in clinical use of stem cell therapies and recent biotech clinical research opportunities being pursued here in San Diego.
