Lipogems receives clearance from the FDA for Orthopaedic surgeries

Recently, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced they have cleared Lipogems to be used in Orthopaedic and Arthroscopic surgeries. This is a major breakthrough in the medical field, for surgeons to provide optimal pain relief with long term results for patients.

Dr. Todd Malan uses Lipogems in his practice to treat various conditions including:




Lipogems uses a patient’s own body fat (also clinically known as adipose tissue) to aid in the healing process for Orthopaedic surgery.

Athletes with major sports injuries have experienced tremendous relief with stem cell therapy, whereas alternative methods of pain management and traditional physical therapy have not worked. In order to harvest the fat, the surgeon will liposuction tissue typically from the abdominal and “love handle” area. The entire procedure can be done within an hours time. 





The Lipogems system removes contaminants, which typically include oil, blood and cell debris, from the harvested fat which is then used to inject in the damaged tissue areas. If patients have multiple areas of injured or damaged tissues, multiple areas can be done at the same time with the same system.

Stem cell therapies can offer key benefits for your physical health and well being:

  • Reverse inflammation
  • Regulate the immune system
  • Re-establish cell-to-cell communication
  • Replace damaged cells
  • Regenerate normal blood flow
