About RMOS

The Regenerative Medicine Orthopaedic Society (RMOS) was brought to life in 2022 by Prof. Tahsin Beyzadeoglu and Ass. Prof. George Skarpas, both renowned figures in the orthopaedic field. Fueled by a shared conviction in the potential of regenerative medicine to revolutionize orthopaedics, they saw the need for a dedicated forum to promote, explore, and advance this innovative field.

Their vision became the blueprint for RMOS – an organization dedicated to transforming orthopaedic care through regenerative medicine. In this pursuit, we are guided by an unwavering commitment to scientific integrity, patient welfare, and the creation of an inclusive, collaborative community.

Our society is a vibrant and diverse network of orthopaedic surgeons, researchers, healthcare professionals, biotech firms, and policy advocates. This broad coalition brings together complementary skills, experiences, and perspectives, fostering an environment that encourages learning, knowledge exchange, and collaboration. Each member contributes uniquely to the evolution of our field and benefits from the shared knowledge and opportunities provided by the society.

Since our inception, RMOS has been at the forefront of breakthroughs in regenerative medicine applied to orthopaedics. We have conducted successful international summits, bringing together experts from around the world to share insights and drive progress. These gatherings have served as vital platforms for knowledge dissemination, idea generation, and collaborations that propel the advancement of regenerative medicine within orthopaedics.

Our success has also been fueled by significant collaborations with other organizations, academic institutions, and industry partners. These strategic alliances have not only expanded our reach but also enriched our resources and capabilities. Together, we strive to navigate the challenges and opportunities in our path to ensure that regenerative medicine reaches its full potential in orthopaedics.

Looking towards the future, RMOS is committed to building upon its robust foundation. We aim to expand our global footprint, increase membership, boost our research contributions, and enhance our educational programs. Above all, we continue to prioritize our central goal – to improve patient outcomes and quality of life by incorporating regenerative medicine in the standard orthopaedic practice.

At RMOS, we believe that our collective efforts will forge a new era in orthopaedics where regenerative therapies become mainstream, marking a significant leap forward in patient care.

Mission of RMOS

Our mission at the Regenerative Medicine Orthopaedic Society (RMOS) is to pioneer the integration of regenerative medicine in orthopaedic care, thereby transforming the way we treat musculoskeletal conditions and injuries. This mission is grounded in four key objectives:

Promotion of Research: We aim to stimulate high-quality, ethical research in regenerative medicine and orthopaedics. We advocate for research that seeks to understand, develop, and refine regenerative therapies for various orthopaedic conditions. Through funding initiatives, collaboration with academic and industry partners, and the provision of research platforms, we endeavor to foster an environment conducive to scientific exploration and innovation.

Dissemination of Knowledge: We are committed to creating and disseminating knowledge about regenerative medicine within the orthopaedic community. Through our summits, publications, online platforms, and educational programs, we share the latest research findings, clinical experiences, and policy developments related to regenerative medicine.

Fostering Collaborations: Recognizing that progress is accelerated through collective effort, we strive to cultivate collaborations among professionals in the field. By facilitating connections between researchers, clinicians, policymakers, and industry leaders, we aim to catalyze the development and application of regenerative medicine in orthopaedics.

Advocacy: We advocate for policies and regulations that support the ethical and effective adoption of regenerative medicine in orthopaedic clinical practice. This includes engagement with healthcare institutions, governmental agencies, and other regulatory bodies to ensure a conducive environment for the implementation of regenerative medicine.

In fulfilling our mission, we at RMOS are driven by a steadfast dedication to improving patient outcomes and advancing the field of orthopaedics. We firmly believe that regenerative medicine represents the future of orthopaedic care, and we are committed to making that future a reality.

Vision of RMOS

Our vision at the Regenerative Medicine Orthopaedic Society (RMOS) is to be the global leader in integrating regenerative medicine into orthopaedics, shaping a future where these innovative therapies are a mainstay of musculoskeletal care.

We envision a world where:

Through our persistent efforts and unwavering commitment, we aim to transform this vision into reality, leading the way in revolutionizing orthopaedic care through regenerative medicine. At RMOS, we aspire to leave a lasting impact on the lives of patients and the future of healthcare.

Founding Story of RMOS

In the field of orthopaedics, progress is driven by the relentless pursuit of innovative and effective treatments. This ethos led two visionary professionals, Prof. Tahsin Beyzadeoglu and Ass. Prof. George Skarpas, to a realization: there was a growing, untapped potential at the intersection of orthopaedics and regenerative medicine. They believed in the transformative power of this field, foreseeing a future where regenerative therapies could revolutionize the care for patients with musculoskeletal conditions.

Motivated by this vision and the urgency to make it a reality, they set out to form a society that would unite like-minded professionals around this cause. Thus, in September 2022, the Regenerative Medicine Orthopaedic Society (RMOS) was born.

Starting as a humble gathering of dedicated professionals, the society was met with enthusiastic support from orthopaedic surgeons, researchers, and other healthcare professionals who shared the same belief in the potential of regenerative medicine. The founders’ passionate advocacy and the founding members’ diverse expertise served as the bedrock for the society’s rapid growth.

The first significant milestone of RMOS came with the organization of the inaugural RMOS Summit in December 2022 in Athens, Greece, spearheaded by Ass. Prof. George Skarpas. The event served as a testament to the society’s vision, bringing together professionals from around the world to share insights, present research, and foster collaborations in the field of regenerative medicine and orthopaedics.

The society’s momentum continued with the second summit in May 2023, held in Naples, Italy, under the stewardship of Dr. Fabio Sciarretta. The event further consolidated RMOS’s standing as a leading force in the field, reinforcing its commitment to the promotion of regenerative medicine in orthopaedics.

Today, as RMOS prepares for its third summit to be held in Istanbul, Turkey, under the leadership of Prof. Tahsin Beyzadeoglu, the society stands as a testament to the enduring vision of its founders. The Regenerative Medicine Orthopaedic Society remains committed to its founding principles, harnessing the power of collective effort, scientific rigor, and innovative thinking to drive the integration of regenerative medicine into orthopaedics.
