Feds Indict Dr. Richard Rydze for Growth Hormone Trafficking — Old UPMC-Pittsburgh Steelers Colleague of ImPACT Concussion Management Charlatan Joseph Maroon

Published October 19th, 2012, Uncategorized

Here’s the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette account of Dr. Rydze’s indictment:


Rydze made six-figure purchases of human growth hormone by credit card from Internet gray-market drug dealer Signature Pharmacy. He was busted by ESPN’s Mike Fish in this story: http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/otl/news/story?id=3831956.

I have made periodic reference to Rydze in posts centered on the far-flung Renaissance-man business interests of his Uniersity of Pittsburgh Medical Center and Pittsburgh Steelers medical staff colleague Joseph Maroon, a founder and owner of ImPACT Applications, Inc. See, for example, https://concussioninc.net/?p=2093 and https://concussioninc.net/?p=4506.
