Stem Cells Q & A
What are stem cells?
Stem cells work as your body’s master cells. They can produce any other cell in the human body and duplicate themselves to make new stem cells as-needed.
Stem cells work on damaged tissue to start the regenerative process, but the body has only a limited amount of stem cells as an adult. Those stem cells spread throughout your body and many collect in fatty tissue.
Today, doctors can capture extra stem cells directly from fatty tissue and use them for targeted regenerative medicine treatments. Fat-based stem cell treatments have up to 500 times the amount of regenerative cells compared to other types of stem cell technology.
At Somers Orthopaedic Surgery & Sports Medicine Group, the specialists use the industry-leading Lipogems® stem cell technology. Lipogems® is the only FDA-cleared stem cell treatment for orthopaedic use.
Who is a good candidate for stem cell treatment?
Stem cell treatment can be a good choice if:
Conservative care doesn’t work
If conservative care such as physical therapy, steroid injections, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs doesn’t work for you, Lipogems® stem cell therapy can be a good next step.
You can’t live a normal life
If your pain interrupts your day-to-day function and wellness, stem cell therapy is frequently a good way to get back to the healthiest state possible.
You don’t want surgery
In the past, surgery was the only real option when conservative care failed. But, thanks to stem cell technology advances, you can potentially delay or even avoid surgery entirely.
During your appointment at Somers Orthopaedic Surgery & Sports Medicine Group you’ll discuss your candidacy for stem cell treatment and learn how it can work for you.
What happens during stem cell treatment?
Stem cell treatment happens on-site at Somers Orthopaedic Surgery & Sports Medicine Group. You’ll receive local anesthesia to numb the treatment areas. Then, your doctor makes a tiny abdominal incision and removes fat from the love handle area.
Your doctor treats the fat using a closed-system device that purifies and micro-fragments the fat cells. This creates the tiny Lipogems, which are an ideal size for injection. Your doctor uses a fine-gauge needle to place the Lipogems where you need them.
The Lipogems deliver maximum healing and tissue renewal in precisely the place you need it, with cushioning and support to minimize your pain and associated symptoms.
