Long Island Spine Rehabilitation Medicine is proud and excited to celebrate the recent appointment of Dr. Jason Lipetz to the Scientific Advisory Board of Biorestorative Therapies (BRTX). Already an accomplished Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation specialist with outstanding credentials, Dr. Lipetz will now be able to share his experience and clinical expertise with this distinguished board of professionals. He will be giving his invaluable input to phase two of an FDA-approved clinical trial examining the role of stem cell therapy in the treatment of spinal disc-related pain syndromes. We are certain that he will excel in his new role as he has excelled as a physician and mentor for so many years.
