Stem Cell Orthopedic Warns Against Bad Medical Advice from Uninformed Doctors
November 05, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsBoca Raton, FL – Dr. Joseph Purita, head of the Institute of Regenerative and Molecular Orthopaedics (IRMO) and world-renowned stem cell therapy expert, warns against bad medical advice from doctors ill equipped to properly administer regenerative medicine. This phenomenon is common among physicians that seek to utilize the efficacy of certain stem cell treatments, without fully engaging the latest scientific understandings of the relatively new technology. This underscores the importance of patients seeking only noted stem cell therapy experts when considering regenerative medicine options.
Inspired by a recent interaction with a patient, Dr. Purita learned of a doctor who was reportedly performing unnecessary and misguided stem cell and platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatment procedures. Dr. Purita contacted the physician and quickly realized that he had a strikingly minimal understanding of the field. The misinformed doctor promised the patient that he was using live cells from the placenta, when in fact the extracts being used were not alive. As such, the cells could not reproduce.
Stem cell and PRP therapy is of the most promising treatments in modern medicine, with its ability to exponentially increase recovery time and regenerate cells in ways that were previously impossible. Though, the proper use of this new technology currently requires the sure hands of experts to maximize its full potential and minimize unnecessary applications. This fact has compelled Dr. Purita to issue his warning to patients across the nation and around the world.
The Institute of Regenerative and Molecular Orthopaedics is dedicated to advancing the scientific understanding of stem cell therapy and its many functions in the medical field. They stand as one of the few orthopedic practices on earth that uses stem cell and PRP therapy in conjunction with traditional orthopedic surgery.
As a pioneer and renowned expert in stem cell and PRP therapy, Dr. Purita encourages patients to exercise caution when doctors offer stem cell treatments, and he invites interested parties to visit the IRMO's website today for more information on the latest in regenerative medicine, types of conditions treated, and more.
