Covington, LA (PRWEB) December 13, 2015
LIPOGEMS® is a new progressive treatment option for arthritis now offered by Dr. Kevin Darr, M.D., a board certified physician specializing in orthopedic surgery and sports medicine.
Clinical Outcome of Autologous Micro-Fragmented Adipose Tissue (LIPOGEMS®) is an IRB-approved study where fat is taken from the patient, washed, and micro-fragmented, using the LIPOGEMS® system. The fat is then injected into the joint area to repair and restructure damaged tissue. Adipose tissue is known to possess regenerative capabilities. We are evaluating the LIPOGEMS®, made with an FDA cleared device, for their ability to repair or replace cartilage, or other tissue, and potentially, the regenerative effects of the fat and the growth factors it contains, to decrease inflammation.
“This is an extraordinary study because of its use of micro-fragmented fat tissue, which makes it more bioavailable to the area we inject,” says Dr. Darr.
Those interested in enrolling in the study will be seen for a consultation to discuss this state-of-the-art treatment.
Dr. Darr of Covington Orthopedic is among few doctors in the country offering IRB- approved regenerative treatment options, with a focus on minimally invasive alternatives to surgery. His work is nationally recognized and he regularly presents his findings at meetings across the country.
