Cutting Edge Aspects in Stem Cell and PRP injections in an office Setting

Joseph Purita, Medical Director, Institute Of Regenerative and Molecular Orthopedics

This discussion centers on the cutting edge uses of stem cells and PRP injections in an office setting. Also discussed are various adjuncts such as lasers and cytokines which directly effect stem cell efficiency and survivability The presentation concerns PRP and Stem Cell (bone marrow and adipose) injections for musculoskeletal conditions in an office setting. Indications are given as to which type of cell and technique to use to accomplish repair. Stem cells, both bone marrow derived (BMAC) and adipose, are used for more difficult problems. PRP injections are utilized for less severe problems. Indications are given when to use Stem Cells verses PRP and when to use both. The newest concepts in stem cell science are presented. These concepts include the clinical use of MUSE cells, exosomes, and Embryonic like stem cells. Basic science of both PRP and stem cells are discussed. This presentation defines what constitutes an effective PRP preparation. Myths concerning stem cells are dispelled. One myth is that mesenchymal stem cells are the most important stem cell. This was the initial interpretation of Dr. Arnold Caplan the father of mesenchymal stem cell science. Dr. Caplan now feels that MSCs have an immunomodulation capacity which may have a more profound and immediate effect on joint chemistry and biology. We now learn in the talk that the hematopoietic stem cells are the drivers of tissue regeneration. Also discussed are adjuncts used which enhance the results. These therapies include supplements, LED therapy, lasers, electrical stimulation, and cytokine therapy. The scientific rationale is presented for each of these entities as to how they have a direct on stem cells.
