Lipogems is a game changing regenerative medicine therapy that can be used to treat a wide range of orthopaedic conditions. Fat tissue is taken from your own body and transformed into an injectable substance that has unique and remarkable healing properties.
Your consultant will suggest lipogems if you:
- want relief from pain and/or improvement in function
- suffer from an injury that limits normal daily functioning or physical activity
- have had other treatment options which have not provided relief
- wish to explore it as an alternative to major surgery
How does it work?
It is a very simple 90-minute procedure which is carried out in just one surgical step. The area of fat tissue is injected with anaesthetic and saline, and then the tissue is extracted. The fat is then subjected to the Lipogems process to turn it into an injectable substance. This substance is then administered into the areas that requires healing.
Is it safe?
The Lipogems method is incredibly safe. The fat tissue we extract is immersed in a saline solution, which means we minimise any trauma to the cells. The procedure is minimally invasive and transplanting your own cells eliminates the risk of rejection. In addition, residues that promote inflammation are removed from the cells to help ensure quick and easy recovery.
