Title: The use of supplements and cytokines in platelet rich plasma injections and stem cell treatments


Purita is director of Institute of Regenerative and Molecular Orthopedics ( in Boca Raton, Florida. The Institute specializes in the use of Stem Cells and Platelet Rich Plasma injections. Dr. Purita is a pioneer in the use of Stem Cells and Platelet Rich Plasma. The Institute has treated some of the most prominent professional athletes from all major sports in both the U.S.A. and abroad. He received a B.S. and MD degree from Georgetown Univ. Dr. Purita is board certified in Orthopedics by ABOS. He is a Fellow American College of Surgeons, Fellow American Academy Orthopedic Surgeons, and a Fellow American Academy of Pain Management. He is also certified in Age Management Medicine. He has lectured and taught extensively throughout the world on the use of Stem Cells and Platelet Rich Plasma. He has been instrumental in helping other countries in the world establish guidelines for the use of Stem Cells in their countries. He has been invited to lecture on these techniques throughout the world as a visiting professor.


The success of stem cell and PRP treatments depends many times on the condition of the extra cellular matrix. The condition of the matrix can have has enormous implications on success or failure on Regenerative Medicine procedures. The matrix is many times a hostile environment of the stem cells. This hostility results in a large percentage of the stem cells (sometimes greater than 97%) perishing. This matrix can many times be manipulated to allow a greater percentage of stem cells surviving. This manipulation can be accomplished by the judicious use of certain supplements, cytokines and other modalities such as micro electrical stimulation and laser use. This talk will center on the use supplements, antioxidants and other modalities. The discussion will also center on free radicals and their mechanisms of causing damage on a cellular level. Also discussed will be certain cytokine pathways which have adirect effect on many orthopedic conditions.
