The Power Of Using Fat

In general, our community prefers a minimally invasive approach with limited down time and activity restrictions. They seek another option to major surgery or to delay surgery.

If surgery is ultimately needed, they are usually looking for ways to optimize recovery.

Did you know that your own body's fatty tissue contains reparative cells that support the healing process? Fat or adipose tissue may be used to repair, replace or reconstruct damaged or injured tissue while providing cushion and support.

Lipogems is a short outpatient procedure with local anesthetic performed in less than an hour. We are able to harvest, concentrate, wash, rinse and resize your own fat for orthopedic issues.

Lipogems is injected precisely into areas of the body to help establish an environment conducive to tissue healing and repair.
