Stem Cell Treatment by Dr. Joseph Purita
World Renowned Stem Cell Therapist
We are pleased to announce
that we are one of a few centers performing stem cell harvesting and
isolation of adipose mesenchymal stem cells.
The Institute of Regenerative and Molecular Orthopedics combines traditional orthopedics with cutting-edge techniques in regenerative medicine that utilize platelet rich plasma (PRP), an assortment of stem cells (such as fat mesenchymal and bone marrow stem cells), and various supplements and growth factors. By integrating these various techniques (many of them devised by ourselves and registered as our intellectual property), we can provide effective non-surgical solutions for common orthopedic conditions. These conditions range from basic tennis elbow problems to degenerative arthritis afflicting major joints that usually require joint replacement. Between these poles lie most orthopedic problems—herniated discs and trigger points in the spine; enthesopathy and rotator cuff injuries; and a plethora of meniscal and ligamentous injuries of the hip, ankle, and knee.
Dr. Joseph Purita and his staff have been featured in numerous publications. From The New York Times to ESPN Magazine, the media have been abuzz about Dr. Purita's recent work with New York Yankees pitcher Bartolo Colon. His breakthrough stem cell treatment and professional sports relationships made him a household name among injured athletes and brought orthopedic stem cell therapy into the spotlight.
Under some circumstances, we must perform minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery to promote the healing process. This surgery includes a micro-fracture technique to treat degenerative arthritis of the knee; it also involves a variety of growth factors to significantly increase new cartilage formation.
Many centers describe stem cell treatment and platelet-rich plasma injections as new techniques. These were new techniques to us several thousand cases ago. Our techniques now have been dramatically improved over the past several years, and we are constantly striving to improve what already seems to be working very well. As can be ascertained from other portions of this site, we are very much ahead of the curve when treating injuries with orthopedic stem cell therapy and PRP treatment. We have taken a futuristic approach to orthopedic problems, employing multiple techniques such as healing stem cell injections for knees and other joints. Other centers may utilize stem cells and or platelets, but they do not combine them with the methods that we are using.
