What is Lipogems® Procedure?

LIPOGEMS® uses your own Powerful Fat to help you heal the natural way. Your fat provides cushion and support to damaged or injured tissue and supports the healing process to optimize your recovery.

There is an increase in patients suffering from joint pain and this number is expected to increase substantially in the next two decades.
Introducing LIPOGEMS® an award-winning new technology offering minimally invasive options for patients in the office or with surgery (if needed). LIPOGEMS® is an innovative and next-generation adipose tissue technology that is used to harvest, concentrate, and transfer a patient’s own fat for the repair, reconstruction, and replacement of injured or damaged tissue.
Adipose tissue, commonly known as fat, has many natural reparative characteristics that help to promote a healing environment throughout the body. There is documentation describing the use of fat to accelerate the healing of soldiers’ battle wounds as far back as World War I.

Facts About FAT

  • FAT  is minimally invasive to harvest
  • Most people have a lot of extra FAT
  • FAT is the highest quality tissue
  • FAT has 100-500 times more reparative cells than other similar tissue. (4)
  • Research has shown that as a person ages, their FAT maintains its reparative properties unlike other similar tissue, such as bone marrow, which may lose healing capacity with age. (1,2,3)

Microfragmented adipose tissue processed by the Lipogems® System is used to provide cushion and support to help the natural healing process by supporting the repair, replacement, reconstruction of damaged or injured tissue.

The Lipogems® minimally invasive procedure is performed in a physician’s office or a surgical setting and can be completed in less than an hour.

The fat is first harvested. It’s then gently processed and/or cleaned with the Lipogems® device and then delivered into areas in the body to promote healing.

One great advantage of Lipogems® is that the fat cells can be delivered to multiple areas of the body. For patients that suffer from orthopaedic conditions in multiple areas of their body, the Lipogems® device can easily process the fat tissue to be used in all those areas in just one visit.
