Not ready for major invasive surgery?

FDA Cleared for use in Orthopaedics

The LIPOGEMS process may offer a minimally-invasive option to major, invasive orthopaedic surgery. When utilized in orthopaedic medicine, LIPOGEMS technology supports a healing environment to help aid in the repair, replacement, reconstruction, and support of damaged or injured tissues.

Orthopaedic physicians, surgeons and researchers are the first to use the award winning LIPOGEMS device that gently processes and uses your body’s own fat tissue to cushion and support areas of injury or damage as your body heals itself. Ideal for patients that have an orthopaedic condition, unable to get major, invasive surgery, would like another option to major, invasive surgery.

Leading Physicians Weigh-in on LIPOGEMS

Riley Williams, MD | Orthopaedic Surgeon
Hospital for Special Surgery | New York, NY
Medical Director for NBA Brooklyn Nets, Medical Director for New York Red Bulls

“Orthopaedic issues impact many, from young athletes to weekend warriors to professional athletes,” Dr. Williams added. “I offer this technology to patients who are suffering from orthopaedic issues and are in need to support or cushion in the area to repair, reconstruct, or replace damaged or injured tissue. If a patient suffers from multiple orthopaedic conditions, more fat may be removed and processed through the LIPOGEMS technology to help with those conditions at the same time.”
