Peter Everts, Ph.D. presents on the biochemistry of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and its role in Integrative/Functional Regenerative Medicine. Dr. Everts has over 25 years of experience in wound care dermatology and interventional ortho biologics. Dr. Everts presents the science behind platelets how they are concentrated as well as other hematology concepts that are related to best practices and patient outcomes.
Dr. Everts received his Ph.D. in 2007 from the University of Utrecht Medical School. He has published over 40 peer-reviewed articles, book chapters on cardiac surgical subjects, and the last 10 years on platelet-rich plasma therapies, and other biological therapies.
Peter has been trained as a clinical perfusionist in the Netherlands in 1981. He was chief of the department of extracorporeal circulation technology at Catharina Hospital Eindhoven from 2000-2010, where he developed the first European department of Peri-Operative Blood Management, to provide biological cell therapies in order to prevent blood loss, stimulate natural wound healing, avoid infections in general, cardiac, orthopedic, plastic reconstructive, and spinal surgical procedures, and chronic complex wounds. Furthermore, he was a pioneer in using concentrated autologous plasma to produce autologous fibrin in different clinical applications to control postoperative hemostasis. Dr. Everts was a member of the steering group of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to develop guidelines and consensus for platelet-rich plasma therapies in sports medicine for (professional) athletes. Dr. Everts is the founder general director of the Dutch Da Vinci Clinic in The Netherlands. He developed integrated wound healing concepts, bridging the many needs for patients and health care providers, to organize adequate and state of the art chronic wound healing models.
