The American Academy of Stem Cell Physicians (AAOSCP) is honored to announce that Dr. Joseph Purita, a pioneer in the use of Stem Cell and PRP therapy for orthopedic conditions, has been awarded the prestigious “Stem Cell Scientist Physician Award.” Dr. Purita received this honor at the AAOSCP’s recent Scientific Congress and Workshop at the Mandarin Oriental in Miami, Florida, held over May 3-5, 2019. The event featured 40+ world-class speakers, integrated the use of live patients, and included three days of interactive workshops with small participant-to-instructor ratios.
A.J. Farshchian MD, a spokesman for the American Academy of Stem cell Physicians, said, “This was a well-deserved award. Dr Purita is way ahead of his colleagues in the field of stem cells. He wrote all the questions for the American Academy of Stem Cell Physicians board examination and is currently one of the most successful orthopedic regenerative scientists.”
