    .BEFORE LIPOGEMS

    Lipogems on orthopedic knee pain that failed to respond to non-surgical methods. Patient advised total knee replacement. Actual unedited video of the outcome 9 months after Lipogems for pain from advanced osteoarthritis of the left knee with cartilage flap tear tibial plateau, fraying cartilage lateral patellar facet, degenerative medial meniscus tear and degenerative fraying lateral meniscus tear. Osteoarthritis grade KL1-4 with KL4 being end stage is KL4. VAS pain on a 1-10 scale 10 being worst pain was 7/10 now 3/10. KOOS knee function score with 100 being perfect was 15/100 now 46.3/100. Strength from 13lb/in2 now 20.5 lb/in2.

    ATTENTION! If you want to preserve access to your own adipose (fat), stem cells and biological tissue than you need to act now. The future in regenerative medicine may be set back by a new FDA guidance that limits the definitions of what functions a tissue performs.

    Mitch McConnell has expressed how ridiculous taking cells from one location on your body and transferring them to another location on your body should not be limited by limiting definitions of “homology” (performs same or similar function). In FDA’s proposed limiting definition of adipose (fat) they have gone so far as to define a breast as only functioning as a mammary gland, and therefore the reconstruction after mastectomy using adipose (fat) is NOT homologous (performs same or similar function) and therefore not allowed.

    The house just passed the REINS act, giving them veto power over any ruled enacted by any federal agency or department. Example FDA

    Get up, pick up your pens and write over and over to Mitch McConnell, Sen. Chuck Grassley and your local legislators! You can make a difference to ensure patient access to treatment changing the quality of life for thousands!

    Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell pushes for regenerative medicine using your tissue from one location transferred to another location. Encouraging we use new technology and improve access. Great insight and patients need your help to preserve access treating orthopedic joint pain with adipose fat graft. Thank you Majority Leader McConnell!

    From Dr. Carlo Tremolada I proudly share this case in which I was personally present when the patient was treated in New York almost three years ago. It is part of a series of very well followed up patient series going to be published with long term follow up. I congratulate Richard Striano for the passion and above all the hard work of the follow up which is essential to show how LIPOGEMS is working in this difficult advanced cases.
    Thank you Rich Stria

     

    PAIN FROM ADVANCED OSTEOARTHRITIS CASE REVIEW:73 YO male: Bone-on-bone knee pain having failed prior standards of care including arthroscopic surgery.First case in clinical study to pass the 2 ½ year benchmark after precision ultrasound guided injection of Lipogems fat graft regenerative cell therapy in the knee joint.HISTORY: His right knee pain was constant, significantly affecting quality of life. He could hardly bend the knee, walking "straight-legged" and could not do simple activity such as putting on socks because he couldn't bend the knee far enough. He had to wear slip on shoes and couldn't put on pants without the help of his wife because of restricted range of motion. He went up steps one step at a time. He used to ride a bike and could no longer do that.Prior arthroscopic surgery medial and lateral meniscectomies. Advised total knee replacement was the only option and he wanted to avoid surgery.

    HISTORY: His right knee pain was constant, significantly affecting quality of life. He could hardly bend the knee, walking “straight-legged” and could not do simple activity such as putting on socks because he couldn’t bend the knee far enough. He had to wear slip on shoes and couldn’t put on pants without the help of his wife because of a restricted range of motion. He went up steps one step at a time. He used to ride a bike and could no longer do that.

    Prior arthroscopic surgery medial and lateral meniscectomies. Advised total knee replacement was the only option and he wanted to avoid surgery.

    Reversing MS With Stem Cells

    Canadian doctors just reversed severe MS using stem cells

    Posted by Alex Klokus on Wednesday, June 15, 2016

    The next big wave in medicine is using your own cells or tissues taken from you and put back into you to repair, replace, support or regenerate damaged tissues or organs. We have seen equally impressive results with joint pain using adipose (fat graft) regenerative cell therapy.

    That’s why all need to write to legislators as the FDA is on the verge of regulating the use of adispose (fat) and transferring your own cells from one area of your body to inject at another area.

    Treating pain in the shoulder from osteoarthritis, a torn rotator cuff and a second abnormal rotator cuff tendon requires pin point accuracy. The patient failed to respond to other treatment and does not want shoulder surgery.Using high frequency diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound imaging provides real time point of care information regarding shoulder pain, rotator tear and tendon abnormalities are identified. The ultrasound guidance of percutaneous injection of Lipogems fat graft regenerative cell therapy is deployed with pin point precision with visual confirmation of covering and filling soft tissue defects. We believe this contributes heavily to the significant improvement we see in outcomes.First imaging, you can see the needle guided to aspirate inflammatory fluid surrounding an abnormal bicep tendon (dark ring around bright white tendon in the center of screen. Looks like a "bullseye"). Once the bad fluid is aspirated the Lipogems is injected to bathe and fill the abnormal tendon with regenerative cell therapy.Second imaging, you can see the needle precisely guided into a rotator cuff tear followed by deploying Lipogems to completely fill the defect with regenerative cell therapy.Can an OptimumJoint traditional or regenerative medical procedure help me?

    CASE STUDY: Precision ultrasound guided Lipogems adipose regenerative cell therapy. 63 YO female with severe knee pain rated 7/10 with 10 being worst pain. KOOS (Knee Osteoarthritis and Outcome Score) is 42/100, with 100 being perfect function. MRI revealed advanced bone-on-bone osteoarthritis with tears in the medial meniscus. Additional evidence of bursitis and tendinosis were revealed at point of care with ultrasound imaging. Patient failed to respond to prior treatments including arthroscopic surgery. Knee replacement was recommended.

    Treatment administered with continuous ultrasound guidance of needle placement to ensure pin-point accuracy and visual confirmation that the deployment of the regenerative cellular therapy completely covers, and fills all points of interest and soft tissue defects. These included the medial joint, medial meniscus, Pes bursa, infrapatellar branch of the saphenous nerve, medial tibial plateau, lateral meniscus and deep infrapatellar bursa. Each target was treated with Lipogems and visually confirmed in real time as seen below.

    5 weeks after Lipogems pain improved from 7/10 to 2/10 and KOOS improved from 42/100 to 65/100
