Lipogems® is intended for the treatment of patients that have an orthopaedic condition but are unable or unwilling to undergo major invasive surgery. It can also be used as a primer in conjunction with currently used reparative and conservative surgical procedures.
The Lipogems micro-fragmented adipose tissue, obtained using the device, is anatomically optimised to provide a long-lasting cushioning and supporting scaffold within damaged or injured tissue, at the same time, providing a micro-environment ideal for supporting the repair, regeneration and reconstruction of damaged or injured tissue.
Fat is crucial for health. It contains numerous cells to fuel and maintain the body’s needs.
Fat contains many reparative cells that help a healing environment in response to a tissue injury.
Fat can easily be accessed and collected through a minimally invasive procedure and local anesthesia.
Research has shown that as a person ages, their fat maintains its reparative properties unlike other tissue such as bone marrow, which may lose its healing capacity with age.
