Delray Beach, FL (PRWEB) June 06, 2011
InHealth Media, a premier nutraceutical and sports nutrition marketing firm, has announced that Dr. Joseph Purita is joining its Board of Directors.
Dr. Purita, who runs The Institute of Regenerative and Molecular Orthopedics in Boca Raton, has practiced at the Boca Raton Orthopaedic Group since 1981. He has spent decades pioneering the research and technology of using stem cells and platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) as a complement or alternative to surgery.
"We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Purita to our Board of Directors, as he will provide unparalleled expertise in the areas of orthopedics and sports medicine to our company," said Mitch Gould, CEO of InHealth Media. "This is just another way in which we are demonstrating our commitment to being a very well-rounded sports and nutrition marketing firm."
Dr. Purita, a graduate of Georgetown University Medical School, has used his treatment methods for muscle injuries, as well as ligament, tendinitis and arthritic ailments. Perhaps most notably, his scientific advancements have helped treat professional athletes for teams across the country, including the NFL's Baltimore Ravens and Miami Dolphins and Major League Baseball's Chicago White Sox and Texas Rangers, among many others.
As a member of the InHealth Media Board of Directors, Dr. Purita will utilize his expertise in sports medicine and anti-aging medicine. In fact, he is known around the world for his knowledge of both anti-aging medicine and nutritional supplements.
"Sports medicine is a field that continues to see tremendous growth, and InHealth Media will play a major role in expanding the scope of important supplements and products," Dr. Purita said. "I look forward to working with this very exciting company."
Dr. Purita was most recently involved in repairing ligament damage and a torn rotator cuff for the pitching arm of New York Yankee Bartolo Colon, which was profiled in a recent New York Times article.
