Platelet-rich Plasma and Autologous Blood Injections

The Sports Physicians at BSEMS are pleased to offer Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) and Autologous Blood Injections (ABI) to our patients. Please refer to our fact sheet for more information. This intervention should be considered an adjunct to a detailed strengthening programme, and is typically used for recalcitrant tendinopathies.

Delhi Commonwealth Games

BSEMS would like to wish all the Australian Athletes all the best for the Commonwealth Games competition in New Delhi! After a bit of a rough start, we are sure now the competition has started that India will have its chance to shine as host. A few of the athletes experienced some last minute hiccups before departing andDr Hislop and Dr Vivers were happy to do their part for Queensland based competitors.

Team Coverage

The long NRL and AFL seasons have finally come to an end for 2010, and not without much drama. The Brisbane Broncos are enjoying a well earned break, but the Reds and Academy players will start their preseason over the next few weeks. Dr Hislop was also privileged to help out with some game coverage for the Brisbane Roar football team in September.


Please let us know how we are doing. BSEMS strive to offer a world class service to Queenslanders and if you think of ways we can do better please let us know.

Until next time, stay fit, healthy and active.
