Stem Cell Orthopedic Applauds Use of Stem Cell Therapy for Spinal Injuries

(PRWEB) July 22, 2013

The Institute of Regenerative and Molecular Orthopaedics (IRMO), world-renowned stem cell therapy experts, applauds the use of stem cell therapy for treatment of spinal injuries. In recent times, stem cell therapy has been increasingly sought after to support treatments of various injuries, especially in the sports world. Its use in repairing spinal injuries comes as good news to the thousands of Americans currently living with spinal cord injuries who are seeking the latest in breakthrough medical solutions.

Stem cell therapy is of the most exciting and promising treatments in modern medicine. Inroads are made every day, as the many applications of stem cell treatments become better understood by medical professionals around the world. Experts, like Dr. Joseph Purita of the Institute of Regenerative and Molecular Orthopaedics, have been utilizing stem cell treatments for many years to treat sports injuries.

Recent scientific and technological advancements have made stem cell extraction relatively inexpensive and accessible. Today, medical professionals have unprecedented access to these remarkable cells and are increasingly applying them in new ways to better aid in the body’s repair process. This includes advances in platelet rich plasma therapy (PRP), a process that takes a concentration of a person’s own plasma and injects it into areas in need of new growth and tissue repair.

The use of stem cell therapy in the treatment of spinal cord injuries presents probably the biggest challenge yet for proponents of the treatment. Researchers are increasingly using stem cells to hopefully better understand its capabilities. The hope for spinal cord injuries is that one day stem cells can be used to generate new passageways for nerve signals to connect to muscles. The more stem cells are used for treatment in spinal cord injuries, the closer the medical field will be to fulfilling this promise.

Headed by the world-renowned stem cell treatment pioneer, Dr. Purita, the Institute of Regenerative and Molecular Orthopaedics is continually advancing the world of stem cell therapy treatments. They are one of the few orthopedic practices in existence that utilizes stem cell therapy, and PRP therapy, with orthopedic surgery to maximize a patient’s recovery outcome. As more stem cell treatments are being used to treat spinal injuries, Dr. Purita and his group look forward to seeing what great strides are made in battling the crippling condition in the near future.

About Stem Cell Orthopedic:
The Institute of Regenerative and Molecular Orthopaedics (IRMO) is a world-class orthopedic practice and stem cell facility staffed with seasoned board certified orthopedic surgeons. They differ from most orthopedic practices because they offer stem cells and platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy in conjunction with surgery or as alternative to surgical procedures. They utilize state-of-the-art technology and the latest in stem cell research to best treat their patients. IRMO uses hematopoietic stem cells (HSC), which are found circulating in blood, fat, and bone marrow, to help repair the body. They are headed by Medical Director, Dr. Joseph Purita, a world-renowned pioneer in laser orthopedic surgery and graduate of the esteemed Georgetown University Medical School.
