“ I ’ m honored and humbled to have this award named after me ,” said Dr . Gitelis . “ Dr . Cole and I share the same commitment to advancing medicine for patients and AlloSource has been an important part of this journey .”
Dr . Cole told OTW , “ Allografts are an important part of how we treat some of the most challenging knee and shoulder problems including symptomatic cartilage loss and meniscal deficiency .”
“ I strive to help my patients understand that allografts don ’ t come from cadavers , they come from donors who gave a very generous gift to help someone else heal . As the process is stressful for all involved and given periodic delays due to insurance approval , graft sizing and availability , it remains important for physicians and patients to remember that these are a gift from a family who has sustained a tragic loss .”
“ Working with Gift of Hope and Allo- Source over many years has been a great opportunity to learn more about the process of tissue donation and see firsthand the work that goes into making these allografts available for my patients . Dr . Gitelis ’ longstanding relationship with AlloSource and commitment to advancing the science behind allografts is an inspiration to me .” — EH
