Adipose-Derived Cell (ADSC) Therapy is an alternative medicine that uses the body’s fat tissue to provide structural support to the body’s tissues by utilizing the reparative cells in fat.
Fat contains a variety of cells including adipocytes, pericytes, and mesenchymal cells, that when utilized in orthopedic medicine, can promote an environment that aids in the repair, replacement, reconstruction, and support of damaged or injured tissues. Because of their fatty property, a Lipogems injection tends to stay in the affected area, allowing your body to maximize the benefits of the reparative cells without being reabsorbed by the body.
This simple, minimally invasive procedure removes a small section of fat that is processed in a special Lipogems device using a sterile saline solution. The fat is then broken down into a smaller sizes, removing the blood, inflammatory cells, and fatty oils leaving only the desired, powerful fat behind. The resulting tissue is called Lipogems. Your physician then will use a small needle to inject the Lipogems tissue into the treatment site.
