Dr. Joseph Purita Conducts Groundbreaking Procedure

New Artho-lavage Treatment Is Effective Alternative to Operations

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwired - February 24, 2016) - Dr. Joseph Purita is on both Nutritional Products International and InHealth Media's board of directors and was recently featured in a New York Times article detailing a revolutionary procedure he undertook to help repair New York Yankees' Pitcher Bartolo Colon's rotator cuff. As part of the procedure, Dr. Purita injected stem cells into colon's shoulder to help minimize recovery time.

Dr. Purita's interests beyond traditional practice led him to acquire a degree in anti-aging medicine. He is a pioneer in the use of Stem Cell and PRP therapy for orthopedic conditions and a world-renowned authority on anti-aging medicine and the use of nutritional supplements. He has lectured world wide on the use of supplementation in wellness, anti-aging and orthopedic capacities.

Being a leader and pioneer in stem cell and PRP therapy treatments, Purita created a new procedure that focuses on eliminating harmful growth factors that are the leading cause of pain and agitation in joints and all ailments according to Purita.

"With the artho-lavage procedure we wash out the knee or agitated joint and it causes instant relief. By combining the lubracin compound washout formula with 'good' growth factors the 'bad' growth factors are eliminated, immediately causing relief," Dr.Purita said.

The three growth factors in the human body that cause pain are called interleukin 1, interleukin 6 and tumor necrosis factor and they are linked to causing everything from diabetes to cancer. The arthro-lavage cleans the damaged joint and helps get rid of these painful growth factors, creating an ideal environment for stem cell and PRP treatments as a second, follow-up procedure.

"I have a saying, 'the syringe is mightier than the scalpel.' This is a truly effective way to treat joint pain that begins working immediately, is non-invasive and does not put patients in bed for weeks," Dr. Purita said. "In a few years some surgeries conducted by doctors today will seem barbaric."

The alternative of artho-lavage, stem cell and PRP treatments is going right into surgery. Evidence in the medical world shows knee and joint surgeries often lead to premature arthritis and additional surgeries that can be both costly and painful according to Dr. Purita.
